Anyone want to suggest what is a good direction for study for my next career move?
I am Java 2 certified, and I'm learning Oracle/Java. I could move towards EJB programming, Web development, ?
Thanks for any (polite, thoughtful) opinions.

yes, both! Developing web apps with n-tier architecture, in small teams is I find the most rewarding work.
If you don't have it already, you would also need a good grasp of OO design, component-oriented design, use-case analysis, RUP, DB schemas etc.


I have seen things you people would not believe, attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion, c-beams sparkling in the dark near the Tennhauser Gate. All these moments will be lost in time, like tears in the rain.
I agree. Here's the link:
