Hi Everybody,

I need your kind assistance and direction to make my career path on progressive track.

I am a Java Devloper working(on JAVA EE) in a small company(employee base 30)in New Delhi, India. I have completed SCJP5.0 (72%in 2006), SCWCD1.4(76% in 2006) and SCBCD 5.0(83% in 2007). We, at this company, using hibernate, struts, spring and other technologies like jasper reports, extjs etc. We do not use EJB here. I have been here from last 1.9 months(total work experience is also 1.9months).
I am very confused that what should i do further so that it should be fruitful to my career according to future growing market. Could you please guide me so that i can select a firm path in my growing career. i can spare 3 to 4 hours per day.
My boss suggested for Security Certifications, but its not my interest. Does not security certificaion for network administrators?

Please spare your valuable few minutes to guide me. I will be highly greatful.

Thanking you,

With best regards,
Prabhat Kumar

Security certs does not lie to Network Certs , they are different.But it
also true most of network certs have security section.

Popular security certs : Cissp,CEH,Check Point Certs,RHCE,CPTS,
CompTia security+,Cisco CCSP and Giac Certs.

by the way, Security job requires at least three years of relevant experience.

I think Java is enough to take your career to the next level.
The author of Beyond java ,Bruce A. Tate thinks Ruby has bright future.

Why not get into integration technologies like JMS, Webservices, and SOA. Also, identify a soft skill that you can improve on. Piling up on your certifications alone is not going to help. You can contribute to a popular open source project. This will enhance your practical experience and also will look good on your resume.

I never said you move to Ruby , I was trying to tell you learn Ruby
On Rails and increase your web development skills.

As you already have good knowledge of Java, you can finish Ruby
within a month(even 15 days).However RoR market has not been completely
unleashed in India.I believe Ruby will never replace Java but
become a good integration language.

As you live in Delhi you probably can get live projects like
naukri.com,shadi.com,ebay,online banking application,online
post-office queue,email server,IRC chat system,P2P program etc.

best regards,
omi
