I am writing this post to put up an open ended questions to see
Q: What are the upcoming trends in the software industry and what are its impact from a Java/ Java EE Developer point of view ?
Q: What technologies are evolving in market place and how java is planning to stay on the top of race on this new era of Software Industry ?
Any insights would be highly appreciated as it would help many veterans and newbie Java/Java EE Developers to define precisely their career path.
I totally agree with the K. Tsang's opinion and my concern was mainly on the impact on Java following Oracle/Sun Merger.
Also I hear now a days alot about webservices and SOA so wanted to know more about it as many companies are going for cloud and wanted to know how all this bits and pieces fall together under one umbrella.
