Hi,

In the current job market where opportunities are very rare I am looking to upgrade my skill set. But not sure which one to go for. I have a few technologies in mind like Ajax, Spring, Web Services.

Could you please suggest which one out of these three which enhance my skill set and improve my prospects in the future job market (say one year down the line).

You can also suggest me any other technology which you might think has good scope.

The popularity of some of the technologies/farmeworks can vary demographically. The best way to identify what the prospective employers are looking for or what the industry is passionate about is through some research, which is a vital skill to have.


1. Check your online job advertisements to see what the prospective employers are looking for.

2. Go to http://www.google.com/trends (Google Trends) and type in the search terms like EJB3, Ajax, Spring, Struts 2, etc to look at the trend.

3. Regularly visit some of the Java sites to keep yourself aware of emerging technologies/frameworks and trnda by visiting

-- http://java.dzone.com/
-- http://www.theserverside.com/
-- http://www.infoq.com/
-- http://www.javaworld.com/
-- http://java.sys-con.com/, etc

where you can learn from industry experts.

In general, you can't go wrong with learning Web Services, EJB3, Spring, Ajax, JMS, and Hiberante. Spring is vast and pick the ones like IoC (aka DI), Spring AOP, popular templates for JDBC, JMS, Hibernate, etc.

I would say that it is worth exploring Spring!

webservices is an over-hyped crap. it is just transfer of data. simple stuff. no business logic, no computation. HTTP has been around for decades and they keep going back and forth around it.

Think of webservices as like a RPC/XDR standard. that can configured for any server, on the internet. Is there anything else that can do that?

Praveen Sharma, who started this topic want to know which technologies will have scope in job market.
Do you mean to say webservices is crap and will not have any scope in job market?
