[I originally wrote this to someone else asking them for advice and help, yet thought I'd post here too.]

I am curious about the outlook of getting a Java programming
job in the future. I am interested in the bigger enterprise related

professionally for about 10 years now (started during the dotcom

for Developer and JEE paths. I am not sure if this would help greatly
in getting a Java programming job, yet I feel it may be a nice test
for myself to prove that I may know enough to be productive in the

I haven't coded with Java professionally much, and just
recently I've been getting into Java again. There are Java jobs out
there and I tried for a few entry level ones (which should show how

least get practice in the Java arena. Also with the certifications, I
think it should show some aptitude in Java programming for JEE
space. I have also been looking into universities that offer online
degrees, so I could at least have a BS degree (most online software
ones are Java oriented anyways).

I am not a total Java newbie, just to many of the
technologies. I am just looking to expand upon the current knowledge
that I know and learn needed technologies for the current JEE
