Not very clear about the future

Here's how my life has progressed:
1. Completed my software engineering in India
2. Gave SCJP during training of my very first job
3. Got into a RnD team in my company for Java + SOA
4. Gave SCDJWS but did not work on any live project
5. Started to blog on Java Ajax and SOA to help others (which get 30K visits / month)
5. Got interested more in Java, gave SCWCD
6. Got my first project... but in an ETL project (data warehousing), against my interests but performed very well in it
7. Also given 2 domain certifications in finance, my current domain

Here are something which I am concerned about:
1. I have the confidence to work in any technology
2. I want to perform a role of a solution architect in future
3. If I switch my current job, will they take me into Java (no live projects in my resume) or will I have to continue doing data warehousing?
4. How can I boost my career and play a decisive role rather than simply programming?
5. Should I do an MBA for career growth?

Most of the software engineers must have gone through a lot of such confusions here at JavaRanch. Could you please lend me a sound advice or your own success story. Your help is much required. I just need a direction to take and the rest of the perseverance required will entirely be mine.

Hi Nitin,

I am very much inspired after seeing your profile on http://techtracer.com/author
The certifications you did with in short time really inspired me..
It has been 15 months since i started my career and i cleared only one certification.

Thanks & Regards,
Ramesh Ale

Yes it is possible to consider you for Java in your new job. You have enough certificates and industry experience to work in Java.
