Dear Srijan,
I posted the "java is dead" message.
Before deciding on anything, please keep in mind, that I am just a graduate and without a job. Where as you are an MCA and have a job as well.

hi everybody ,
i certainly don't agree that java is dead. If u have some experience in java and u put your resume on the websites for eg will get countless offer's.I have a cousin of mine who is getting lot of offer's in java, he is B-Tech and he is too good in java to handle tough problem's.I know what happen's in india when something goes wrong in USA.

dont worry. whatever you learn will never become obsolete. collect as many certificates as you can. it will always be helpful sometime. would not the money be reimbursed by the co when you get the jcp cert.?

Hi Srijan,
This is not to discourage you or anything, but I think that the price of the voucher in India is Rs 14,000 now. So if you are planning to take the exam (which I think you should), get your voucher soon....before they make it Rs 28,000 !!!
All the best.
