hey is microsoft eating up java and racing ahead in the competion?

1) sharepoint and biz talk is killing weblogic portal and other such techs
2) sql server 2005 is killing oracle and sybasse
3) reporting service and other BI tools are killing other competion,

I am thinking of moving to .net technologis from microsoft as of more job prospectus,

4)what is the thing in java that is on the top,and gets more money as consultant?

Just to be clear, I did not mean that as a harsh comment. Right now java is doing very well, in my opinion. There have been several false alarms raised about java's death and none of them have been true so far. Eventually one day several years from now java might die and you will then have people saying 'see i told ya !'.

Our projects have a lot of java in them. One of them is in VB.NET and a few use powerbuilder but they mostly rely on java to get the job done. Java could be better but i would code in a scrawny java IDE any day than code in the IDE of evil

Arguably VB and VC++ make for excellent languages to code in Windows and when you need more flexibility for windows specific programming they win hands down.

SQL Server is certainly gaining market share, but it's not killing Oracle.

Check these out (although the data is old),

Microsoft does have more true consulting opportunities right now. There aren't many businesses that say "We really want to use this new technology on the Java platform but we don't have any employees with experience." Most of the hot Java technologies right now are application frameworks that aren't too difficult to figure out.

M$'s SharePoint, on the other hand, is a great example of a technology that companies feel they need to hire consultants for. If you don't care what technology you work with and just want the big bucks, becoming a SharePoint expert is a great choice right now.

I wouldn't go so far as to say that Java is being eaten by another technology but I do agree that getting hired as a big bucks consultant rather than as POC (Plain Old Contractor) is more likely on the M$ platform than the Java platform right now.

if we look at the Indian software market,
As per my findings java people are
easily earning big bucks offshore than MS guys.
I m into Microsoft technologies.. Sometimes I wonder I should rush into java pastures

Are sharepoint consultants really hot?? gotta get some hands on in it again??
