Dear All, This is my first post on JavaRanch. The intention is to get some professional advice from the Ranchers around here. I have a total of 4.5 years of exp in IT industry. I work in TPF (an O/S of IBM that is used exclusively for Transaction processing computing) and assembler. The technology is not so fascinating for me. My area of interest during my college days were on OOPS programming and Database. But in 2002, when i passed out of my college, i didn't get much of an opportunity to work on those areas. I was offered to work on TPF and assembler with a 3 year work bond. I was left out with no choice and took up the offer. Now 4+ years later i thought that i had enough of the work that i do currently and decided to move into Java. Please advice me whether my choice is good at this juncture of my life. If i pursue my career with Java as my technical skill set, will I be able to align with the rest of the Java community What are the career opportunities do I have with Java. Please respond to my queries and help chose a better career life
