hi javabies:
any one interested in discussing Java Online Multiplayer Games Future!!!
I am a Games Programmer in Java working for last 1 year. I have developed as well as deployed 5 multiplayer and almost 75 single player games for a games portal.
But due to the ongoing recession, the site is closed and i am without a good job...
any one there who could guide me what to do...

I think JAVA Multiplayer Games have a real limited present as well as future. Unless you are talking about Card and Board games, JAVA just isn't there speed wise. At least not a 100% java solution that is.
Just my opinion though. I bet someone is going to move this discussion. It's not really in the appropriate forum.
