EAI stands for Enterprise Application Integration. EAI is a good skill to have in addition to your Web development skills using Java/JEE. Many large companies need to integrate with disparate systems. There are many Java/JEE based websites that source data in real time from Legacy systems via integration technologies.

Find out

-- what tools/framworks/products you will be using in EAI?
-- what will you be integrating?
-- Will it require Java/JEE skills set?

EAI market is good...but wrk is not challenging. So if you need less work and more may move to EAI...but I would prefer to stick to Java/J2EE.

EAI work does not involve much coding as you use some EAI tool to do that.But its challenging from design/architecture point of view.Based on requirements, EAI might involve lot of Java programming too.

Webmethods/Tibco are good tools and generally used by big clients in financial/retail sector who generally have many legacy applications.Till recently EAI tools were in demand.Current slump/high cost of these tools have reduced the demand.
Working on these tools definitely add value to your resume.

WebMethods skills are very valuable. They will be a strong asset for anyone that significantly gains the knowledge of how to implement solutions with WebMethods.
