Hi Guys,
I'm a 54 year old unemployed consultant. I've been thinking of learning Java. I am an experienced programmer, IBM 370 assembler, COBOL, Basic. I am good at application design and I enjoy the challenge of learning new applications and languages. My question is - should I learn this great language and do I stand a chance of applying it somewhere with all the young guys out there I would be competing with? There seems to be somuch to learn and so little time - EJB, JSP, XML. etc...!!! Any suggestions?

Good Luck!
