Hi,

I have 5 years of exp. I have worked as an PLSQL developer and from past 2 years working as a Java + PLSQL developer.

As my project has very less Java work I am learning Spring + Hibernate to be more into Java as we need to know a Framework to grow in Java.

But now Hadoop is in demand. And a Hadoop Developer also needs to know Java & some Jsp Servlets concepts.

I wanted to know that which will be in more demand in future <i.e> Career wise and Pay wise which technology will be more beneficial to go with Hadoop or Spring Hibernate. Please Suggest.

In the near future (aka the present), both are in demand. Nobody can predict what will happen in the far future.

I think you are better off learning Hadoop first. You already have the database background which puts you ahead of a lot of developers. Making it more likely you can become a Hadoop expert at some point.

There is nothing that is going to be the technology stack that stays for ever! Be ready to embrace change and keep learning.

Yes thats true that in technology nothing stays forever. But still on positive notes which will gain more momentum.

I think the point being made is that you can't know what's going to be big, you can only know that it's not going to be the same that's big today, because that's going to be dead. That's why you need to be prepared for constant learning, and it makes the fundamentals more important than any single product or technology.

This can't be predicted. One thing that can be predicted is that there will be demand for good programmers. Forget the technology, focus on the basics. If you want to get into Java, focus on getting strong on OOP fundamentals.
