As far I have seen, ads are there only for guys experienced in java for jobs. Then what are the prospects for a fresher in java?

hi,
mohan,
i do not know where u r located, but ads normally do ask for 2+ years experience. However i doubt how many people r there with this kind of experience and the salary demands of such people will be high too. But just get into some company for some time by giving u r bio-data in some companies and attending their interviews and i guess u will find u r way. I joined a job recently after passing a java test that my employer gave me.

Welcome Karthikeyan,
You might have some luck if you add the keyword "junior" during your job search. Some positions are explicitly posted for junior developers, while many others will say somewhere in the body "junior applicants also welcome" or something similar. Often the posting will not take time to go into the junior developer requirements, but they are much less than what is requested for senior applicants. In my experience an SCJP, and some basic computer know-how, will get you an interview for a junior position.
Good Luck!
Eric B.
