hi all,

I know we had some very expereanced person in java ranch as well as people working on different architecture and tools in java/j2ee. So guys let's open a discussion about what do you think which technology is the hottest in the market now a days and had a long future.

In my openinon Spring and hibernate along with Aspect Oriented Programming are hot now a days.

i think we should also provide a couple of points in support of our view so that we can justify our choices, otherwise we would end up with a technology name in which we had started working recently.

Communications! People who are skilled in this field tend to get higher pay than the average developer. I strongly recommend developing communication expertise (speaking, writing, interacting with non-technical people, etc).

Hi all,
this is a good thread,

Thanks for starting it,
Thanks mark for that hint, i also believe that technical abilities help you pass the interview while communication helps you get success on the job.

By the way what about Portal/portlets Developement or EJB .?
Most of the jobs i see ask for WebLogic/Webspehere experience?
What abour RAD ?


And if you can comment on what does hot means according to you along with the technologies that would be helpful to people like us. like example : there are lots of jobs for it or hot means that we get paid more for it

thanks in advance

i worl on oracle portlet deploying on Oracle 10G application server. Don't sure about indian market but my clients which are 150 big universities in USA, all work on oracle 10G and portlets. So we have plenty of work.

but hot means mix of both, the technology which is upcoming and if we experties in it then we can make big buks. For ex. we can say that struts is out now and spring and hibernate is in. so if we learn spring we can get more buks.

i am working on portlets, and my friend in banglore told me that it's already making good place in market after google adopted portlet approach. So we can say it's hot now a days.

So, guys plese give a valid reason also as i am giving above to prove our points, and i think only then we can make this discussion more producative.

Technical abilities alone won't get you past my interviews. ;-)

To paraphrase Peopleware, software development is not so much a technological problem as a sociological one. Think about your projects, how many times ave you come a cross a problem that is very complex, requiring advance algorithms that take days to complete? More often you find problems because the requirements weren't clear.

The more senior you get (e.g. architect, project manager, director), the more likely you'll not only run meetings, but will have to work with non-technical people, such as sales, customers, upper management. I recommend groups like Toastmasters for help with public speaking.

No matter what level you're at, you'll be involved with lots of writing: emails, technical documentation, user documentation, release notes, code comments, meeting summaries, specifications, etc. Being able to communicate well is critical! Most developers hate writing but there's no avoiding it. I recommend reading books and articals on technical writing (and business writing in general). When reading documents from others, pay attention to what they have written and how well or poorly it communicates.

Talk to your manager about setting improvement of oral & written skills as some personal career objectives and talk to him/her about ways to do that.

Remember the following. Let's suppose you know 10 "types" of Java (e.g. JSP, JDBC, Core Java). Are you really that much stronger for knowing an 11th? Will your peers and managers take more notice of you because of it? On the other hand, if you improve your ability to communicate, how much more likely are they to notice you then?

I agree ,
But when someone wanted hot skills , I guess they wanted hot software skills like (struts, sap, ajax).

If soft skills are to be considered there are also other skills as attitude, persistance/patience , concentration. The list could grow long.
To generalize these are the skills needed to succeed in life (not just your job).

I took Sachin's question about which skills have a long future to be asking about where he should invest time to insure a promising career. I may be wrong in which case Sachin is welcome to correct me, but otherwise I stand by my statement that these skills will take you further than any technical knowledge.
