Guys,

What would be the pay scale for a guy with 3 years of experience in Mainframes and for a guy with 3 years of experience in Java. How good is the market for Mainframes when compared to Java?

Yes what location are you referring to? Also a specific role or job title would help get more specific answers. In general or nationwide, Java jobs pay a median salary of $84210 while Mainframe jobs pay a median salary of $69340. There were 26787 Java jobs posted online in June in comparison to 3709 Mainframe jobs.

... which is a web site that -according to his email address- is maintained by Carl's company. That should really be noted in the interest of full disclosure.
