-- Improve your job hunting and networking skills. There are good books like "What color is your parachute?", etc.
-- Write a resume, clearly mentioning your intention of changing careers. Indicate that you will be looking for an entry level position.
-- Gain some hands-on experience in Java and some of the sought-after technologies. Even if you have to offer your services for free.
-- Don't under estimate the power of volunteer work. It will not only give you the much needed hands-on experience, but also can open doors for paid jobs by either impressing your superiors or through the fellow professionals. This could be a win/win situation for both employer and employee.
-- Work on some self-taught Java projects to gain some hands-on experience.
-- Finally, time is tough. Be positive and work at it.

thanks for that "before you start piling up your certifications" message
