* 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.

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!
