Just found this interesting graph:

Looks like Java developers don't have to fear much (not that I expected us to...)

Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus

It has to be put in perspective that more j2ee projects are considered for scalable, reliable systems. They tend to be more high paying compared to .net skill sets(i am saying this in a general sense, some folks with better knowledge and output may be getting payed in either direction)

Java and .Net can be compared now especially after 2005 release.
.Net frame work is powerful and capable for building scalable and robust enterprsie applications.

.Net is invading to Java market as it is always fast to develop application using MS IDE than Java..

Java is again opensource where .Net has software support.

If suppose MS acquires SAP and converts all ERP suite to .Net framework, java has real life threat.

Paywise both are same...
I agree. Here's the link:
