hi
I am a software professional from Bangalore, India, with almost 2 years of experience in java. I like working in java very much. Since last 6 months I have been working on a Message-oriented middleware ( DDS ) project. I really find it very exciting, this project will last till one more year. In the current company I am getting very low salary compare to what work I am doing. So, I really want to switch over to some better opportunities after this project. And I don't know if this field is that much wide spread or not ( meaning, if it is easier to find jobs specific to this field, specially in India).

Can someone guide me in this? Is this really a good field or should I stick to Java Core or J2EE ( Servlet / JSP / EJB ) ? Please help me out in this, it's very critical decision for me at this stage in my life.

Thanks

In Java, messaging is done via the JMS api (most commonly). So, if you use that API, it can't hurt to get experience in it, as it can be reused.

DDS is, of course, not JMS based. It is a "standard" for messaging. And I use quotes because I don't really agree with it. DDS is used mostly in government -- and haven't gotten much traction elsewhere unfortunately. Until it gets more widely used, I hardly consider it as a useful standard at the moment.

DDS is interesting though. And who knows? Maybe it will get more traction in the future.


In summary, no strong opinion either way...
