I am Tuan, a student.
I currently learn Java, and doing certifications along the side. (I got my OCAJP and OCPJP)
My next path is to learn about Spirng(Spring Professional 5.0 Certification) or Java EE (Java EE 7 Application Developer | 1Z0-900)
I did some research about Java and Spring, I see almost everyone is talking about Spring today.
I want to learn both but I also want to have job within the next year.
I try to build my profolio and bug tracker website from scratch with one of these two technology while learning to solid my knowledge.
I have two questions:
1. Is Java EE still used today and is it worth it to learn it. For job security which path should I choose: Spring or Java EE ?
2. I have one year, is it possible to do learn both Java EE and Spring, and got both certifications in one year ?
Thanks for your attention. I’m looking forward to your reply.
I would recommend you to concentrate on Spring only.
First off -- Java EE is dead now, there is Jakarta EE instead, but the future of Jakarta EE is not very clear.
From job positions point of view Spring is the winner, so go for Spring ! 8-)
