Hi,
I am currently working in J2EE (Struts & Hibernate - Both V 1.0) as Team Lead with 2.4 Years exp. We donot have any Onsite Opportunities .I am planning to switch to Android in a Couple of weeks. How will be the future of Android ? Is it right to switch from Java to Android ? I am confused to Opt between Java / Android .

Thanks

So does it mean the switch is because you think you stand a better chance for onsite opportunities?

Nobody can reliably predict any future for any technology. Since you are considering a switch to Android development, what do you think is the current market* positon for android and what according to you will be the trend in say 6 months time?

*Market not as in job market, but android share in the mobile device market

No. Onsite is not the only reason I am switching to Android. I am planning to switch from my current J2EE Project. So next project Option can be Java or Android ? I feel like Android will be Strong in Market for some more years , because most people have started using it. So bringing up a change in OS may take sometime. It's only my guess. Please suggest.

The only certain thing is that change is inevitable. And that in the mobile world it comes quicker than elsewhere.

From my perpective it makes no sense to say "I plan to switch from JEE to Android". What you're doing is adding Android to your skill set, so that from now on you will be able to work both as a JEE developer and an Android developer. Within your professional career JEE will be dead. Java will be dead. Android will be dead. Some other technologies that you haven't even heard about yet will be dead. So just about anything that ties you to particular technologies is a bad career move.

Be good at what you're doing, and be flexible and willing to learn, and you'll be fine.
