About US$80 million a year.
Seriously, I would say for 3.5 yrs verifiable US J2EE (XML/EJB/JSP/UML) experience, and a college degree, and certifications - you are looking around US$85K/yr + benefits.
If you are seeking more of an Java architect role - the salary starts to climb. On some of the job boards the salaries ranged from US$100K to US$150K/yr + benefits.

Note: benefits meaning health/life/dental insurance - etc.

Hmmm...I think salary offers has taken a beating due to the current market condition. I would venture a number that is 20% less than what John has stated. That is if you're the lucky few who does get an offer.

I woudl tend to agree with John, but would put a at +/`10% (or maybe even 20%) to account for specifics such as your education and experience, type of position, location, etc.
I think the architect salaries listed which go much above $100k are usually reserved for "true architects," i.e. those who have 10+ years experience, and not just some kid who, due to the recent spate of job title inflation, has the title.
