Sun Servers experience : Are sun Servers still being bought for j2ee / java development ? Although Linux is picking up in the OS market
for development / deployment, there are SUN servers in Software houses and when preparing 'Resume' I still use SUN OS as one of OS i worked on. Eventhough Java is not dependent on OS , an individual will be forced to write some form of scripts for running jobs. It will be mandatoy for the interviewer in that case to find out which OS the candidate has worked on.

Yes, still the sun servers together with Sun-Os (or Unix) used in server market for deploying heavy j2ee applications. But, very less in number. Since, they are very costly.

Some of the job desc prefers such skills. Ex: If you are working in unix, you are also expected to be knowing unix-shell script.

Otherwise, the platform wont count.

(Putting 'unix/solaris env' in resume, doesnt look cool? yes it is )

Maybe sanity prevails in Indian HR. In the US, however, the ads typically read "Java programmer wanted. Must have 5 years JSF experience, 3 years Solaris 10, 5 years Oracle 10g, ...."

We just installed our first production Linux cluster. Most of our production machines are Solaris with a scattering of Windows servers. Although the Linux config saved a lot of money, we're not ready to junk Solaris just yet.

Also, Oracle just stated that their "preferred" platform is Solaris.

Sun may not rule the world, but it's not yet dead.

Personally, the main difference I experience when working with Sun shell scripts over Linux is that suddenly all the major commands get 10 years more primitive under Solaris, but try telling that to typical HR. If it says Solaris experience, they demand Solaris experience.


Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
