* Lean Java basics very well. SCJP book by Kathy Sierra, would be a great starting point.

* Read specifications from SUN. (Servlet specification, EJB specification etc). This is a key point, I started reading it very very late in my career.

* Set your browser homepage to any java related site like theserverside.com or javaworld.com. You may end up reading some good articles.

* Learn some design patterns. Get one, Head First Design Patterns book and read.

* Have some understanding of protocols like TCP/IP, HTTP etc.

* Try to develop a friends circle where you can discuss and share the knowledge that you acquire.

* Try to get a mentor in your present company.

* Try attending some local company interviews to measure your knowledge.

As of my knowledge, Sun is a pay master. But, it depends on designation and experience. It may be negotiatable.

Sun does the kind of testing/optimizing work for jdk releases in Bangalore ICE. Also, it might be developing some products like Sun N1 SPS. (I am not sure of it).

Hi Unni krishnan,

Some days ago you posted a message regarding your offer from Sun. So, what about it? If you dont mind you can share your ideas/experience with us.

Sun wasn't paymester back in 2000/2001, a colleague had offer from Sun paying him 4 LPA for 3 years experience and his work was mostly testing at that time. He didn't take that offer.

Also depends on your current salary. Now days many companies do negotiate based on current salary.

Exactly. CTC plays a major role in the next salary -- though it is debatable if it should. These days sun should pay at par with paymasters like HP in Banglore, though I am not really sure if the work there is good.

At one point my dream job was to work on app servers at Pramati!
