hi,

I am from India, am java developer with 2 years experience. Since last 1 year, I am working on middleware technologies. I want to make a career in this domain itself. I know DDS, JMS ( beginner level). I don't know whether I would get any better jobs in Java Middleware in India or not. I think, I am getting lost in the uncertainity about the future.. Please guide as to what all I can do to make my career better.. I don't want to work on Java Web Development, as it doesn't look that exciting to me as java middleware technologies.

Thanks

That's a perfectly legitimate choice for a job. You'd be a specialist in a technology. Consulting companies or vendors often look for specialists.

I agree. There are many middleware companies who extensively use Java for their products. You can try them. Many have offices in India, including leaders like Tibco and Webmethods

hi all,

I need some urgent guidance regarding the choice between java web development and java messaging.. Suppose if I switch to JMS, is there any chance of getting jobs in India? Is it easy or hard to find a job in JMS or any other messaging framework, in India? Right now I am in real dilemma, I am getting calls from some big MNC's for jobs in Java Web Development. I don't have to switch job right away, as my current job will keep my hands full for coming few months at least...

But I want to get a fix on what I should be doing now. If I can get jobs in Java Messaging without much trouble in India, then I will simply wait for right opportunity, or else I will have to try my luck with offers from these companies..

Please guide. I have got interview calls from two major software firms..

Thanks

Middleware technologies and tools are best learned on the real job where there is a middleware product.


While acquiring your skills in middleware you can keep your knowledge current in other Java/JEE related technologies and sought-after frameworks through self-study.

Dear S Ravi Chandran,


I am in a scenario just as you have mentioned, with 3+ years of experience in Java/J2EE (Mostly Web development), spring and hibernate with some knowledge on web services. I have offers for Java web development, that too in jquery and javascript kind of technologies. I agree JSF, Java script and Jquery are well established and respected technologies in Java Web development, but I am not interested. I have earlier worked on JMS and SOAP-WS for certain projects which make me fascinated toward JAVA middle ware stack. I want to make my career in JAVA MIDDLEWARE. I have also gone through opensource things like Apache Camel, Activiti and Spring Integration as they are available to exploration free. But I am not sure how to make some knowledge on real enterprise class products like TIBCO, Webmethods or Websphere Process Server although I hear a lot about them in Java Middleware stack. Surely I was searching for this and found your forum post, which inspired me to consult a person like you for guidance. Is there a possibility like if I learn some TIBCO or Webmethods from some training classes, I can try for a opportunity in those kind of jobs?? Or as most of them say, they have to be learnt only in project which come just as coincidence(Say LUCK factor)?

Please suggest me on here

Thank you
 
Marshal
