hi all, i am now working in c , c++ etc. i got an offer from a small company in J2EE, EJB , servlets etc. but some people say that java is dying as e-commerce has gone down and that it is not advisable to shift to server side java technologies. could some one please tell me whether this is correct ? and whether ejb etc are used only for e-com ? sorry, if this is not the correct place to post this. thanks --lg
Hi, You r right about something. Actually, EJB is mainly used in E-commerce fields only. It is also true that Java projects are down now. But, i think Java is certainly not out. I would suggest that u stay in your previous job itself. As it is u mentioned that it is also a small company. In the current scenario, it is better not to take risks. You should wait for another 4 months. By that time, i guess Java market will be up and running. Madhesh
I don't really think Java is down. The economy is but when I search on Dice for "java", I get about 25,000 hits. When I search on "C++", I get about 35,000. Given that C++ has been around alot longer I'd say this isn't bad for Java.
