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.

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.

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.

It is better to stay away from Java for the time being.Well only time will tell about the future of java.But my idea is you should stay with the first job.
Thanks and best of luck.
