Which Java technology is currently the hottest in the market? I mean which Java technology are most recruiters aiming at now.

It can vary demographically but in my opinion and experience

Spring, Hibernate, JSF, Mavan2 and Ajax4jsf.

Applets! Can you elaborate? As a server-side developer, I know nothing about applets.

RIA is not a technology, and Ajax is not a Java technology. Not to say that it isn't hot.

Well, you could be more right that you think. One of the reasons that applets are not so popular at the moment is because it's a hassle to download and install Java. Sun is at work to make the JRE download more lightweight, so that the Java browser plug-in is just as quick and easy to install as the Adobe Flash plug-in. That, and JavaFX Script, might make applets much more popular in the future.

I don't think SOA and EAI are Java technologies. Indeed they are enterprise concepts and Java is used to assit those paradigms but, I don't think you can call them Java technologies.
