I am new in the field of java and I want to make career in this. But today I heard this rumor that Java is no going to die and professionals are being taken out.
I live in a small town and no one here knows what really going on. Please let me know what truth is.

I've just been looking for some statistics, but I can't seem to find anything reliable (there are a few things on sun's site).
As far as I was aware, Java is fast becoming if not already the most popular programming language about. But then I don't really have anything to ck that up with.
Here are some links:
This is about the European job market, but it says go Java: http://www.techweb.com/wire/story/TWB20001005S0004
This is from an article about job interviews (or something)
"Desperate companies don't care if the candidate is a job hopper. They're not doing background checks...If they see C++ or Java on the resume, you're in, regardless of your manners." (from http://news.cnet.com/news/0-1007-200-2212724.html )
This is about the US job market, and suggests that there aren't that many openening in India at the moment: http://www.sunservermagazine.com/billday/bday0200.htm
if ths page worked, it should answer your question (supposed to show job ststs, but didn't work when I looked): http://jobstats.jobnet.com.au/jobtools/jsjobstats.displaycategory?in_catid=5&in_type=100
This says Java is a good career path: http://www.sunworld.com/swol-02-1996/swol-02-career.html
And this page says some good things about it, although I think it's a couple of years old: http://java.sun.com/people/jag/Presentations/JapanDevCon/text2.htm
IDC reckon Java is the most in-demand skill in Dev, although the number of developers is going down: http://www.idc.com:8080/software/press/PR/sw030200PR.stm

This, and the many similar threads already there, are more suited to "Jobs Discussion", so I've moved this thread.
