Hi All,

I am working in Java/J2EE for last 3+ years. But i wish to
acquire knowledge of some other technologies (Ofcourse related to Java) to enhance my skill set.

Can any one tell me which is the hottest technology today
which is in great demand in the market?

Regards,

Grishma

Web 2.0 and AJAX will be in demand soon especialy for some of the products applications

My guess and am more inclined to UI development.

I personally dont run behind technologies. If your fundamentals are good it is not a big deal to pick up any new technology. And I could able to convince on the same in any interviewer so, even I do not know much new technologies I could able to get job.

It is good if you have design, architecture skills and they will help you in career regardless technology.

In addition to those already mentioned, keep an eye on component oriented frameworks like JSF/Facelets/Seam(JSF + EJB3), Tapestry, Wicket.
Ofcourse Spring is big too.

I have a slightly different take on this. I agree that aptitude is the key.
But if you are in a position where you have to pick one amongst tons of other available alternatives, you need to be aware of them. For eg , learning entity beans (now obsolete ejb2) is not so much of a problem but if somebody is not aware of say Xdoclet, they might end up writing lots of redundant stuff that the tool c'd have easily taken care of.

I agree with you Karthik.

If we do understand the fundamentals, design and architecture of any technology then you can easily fit into new technology even you do not know the new technology.

For example if you know fundamentals of RMI and its architecture it is easy to pick either CORBA, EJB or Web Services(even though web services do things differently). After all most of the new technologies revolving around Object and how we can pass this object here and there

Coming to technologies like Xdoclet you mentioned, those kind of technologies we learn when we start exploring how to make best design or architecture and write efficient code.

I agree with Redyy as well as karthik. B'coz if our fundamentals are strong then any new technology would not be too difficult to learn.
But at the same time , when we actually see today's changing market conditions, people specifically ask for technologies like, spring , hibernate , jsf etc. So i personally feel, apart from having strong basics one also needs to be have an idea of hot techs. like spring and hibernate etc, so that one can have an edge when compared to someone who has strong basics but no idea about any new tech.

what say Mr.Reddy ?

I feel Web Servcies, BPEL, BPM, SOA, SSO and other technologies which revolve around new generation architectural platform that encompasses a series of contemporary technologies (both proprietary and vendor-neutral) would be in great demand. The graph is rising but not saturated (will take more time to saturate), and a person with this skill sets would be different from the whole lot. Here I am talking about conceptual knowledge about these technologies.

Thanks

Hi

I guess Portal Framwork is going to be presentation of future web applications. Specifically IBM WebSphere portal has good future.

EJB 3.0 is coming up in the market with new set of features, so keep eye on that also.

As well new design/ architecture concepts like SOA,AOP are also note worthy.
