Hi
It depends on your area of interest,whether you are interested yo work in the client side programming or the server side programming.If you are intersted in the client side then go for Swing and if you are interseted in the server side java development then go for Servlets,JSP,EJB.

Two topics which I think are up and coming are JMX and JCA. If you put it on your resume today, most people probably won't know what they mean. But I think 6-12 months from now companies will start incorporating these technologies into their offerings, and it's an opportunity to get ahead of the curve. (Although both of these are pretty advanced topics, so you should have a good grasp of J2EE to begin with).

In my personal opinion is Swing is terrible. I hate to generalize but I find Swing way to slow and buggy for most uses(Kinda like Applets over the net). Even the AWT runs better than Swing, Sun should make a consorted effort to improve Swing and maybe developers will begin to use it more.

I actually haven't seen JCA stand for "Java Cryptology Architecture" since about 1999. Sun seems to have recycled it for Java Connector Architecture. (I also thought of the crypto definition when I first saw it recently, too.)

I think Swing is great API and have not found it buggy whatsoever. Which parts of it do you find buggy? I think one thing holding people back from using Swing is that it is not compatible with older versions of Java, not that it is buggy. I do agree about it being slow though.
