I really dont know about the opportunities in Denmark but the best you can do is to Google the job sites for Denmark and the search for the jobs in your domain, that's one way to know the job market in Denmark

I am from Denmark...what exactly would you like to know??

About the language: its is true that many big companies use English, but you should expect that you will need to learn danish along the way. You really cant live in Denmark without knowing the language. But you will get along fine in the beginning. Sometime you can get a deal where learning the language is a part of the job description.
Also make sure that your new employer is fine with "English only" in the beginning, as not all will accept this.

Well, everywhere the pay scale depends on your experience level and the role that you might be into. On an average in India, you can say that for a 5 years of technical experience in Java / J2EE related technologies, one can expect something between 700 K Rupees to 1200 K Rupees (20000 $ to 30000 $). I'm not sure about the exact figures as this is from my experience among my circle that I know.

Well I dont know about JAVA specifically, I am in C programming. But I can tell you about the IT job market in general. The situation used to be much better with higher salaries and more jobs, just like everywhere else in the world right now. We are very welcoming of foreigners, because we are aware of the fact that Denmark is a very small country. We need some "new blood" sometimes, an "infusion" of talented workers. If you do not know what you are doing, or have no experience what so ever, dont apply at all though. If you do come here and get a job, you will also be paid well, but remember that it is very expensive to live in Denmark. Try to get a job OUTSIDE of Copenhagen, as it is much, much cheaper to live there, and you will save a lot of money that way.

Let me know if I can tell you anything else?

My earlier question is here: http://www.coderanch.com/t/505134/Jobs/careers/Part-time-salary-INDIA
If anybody could help me out, that would be great, as we are in need of hiring a person pt.

Later!

Denmark and the Netherlands have one of the most restricted immigration policies of Europe, and there are a lot of native software engineers who cannot get a job. Why do you persist on going there??

Because I do not want anyone to come to western Europe while a lot of the native engineers cannot get a job. Because there are a lot of unemployed software engineers, mostly a bit elder, who are pushed out of the market by young cheap and not too critical immigrants. There are not enough jobs.

http://www.managersonline.nl/vaknieuws/22920/ict-sector-groeit-maar-weinig.html

I will translate the main part:

ICT-sector has only little grow.

28 februari 2011 - ICT-sector has only little grow. The demand for contractors has decreased to the level of 2009, according to the ICT Barometer of Ernst & Young. Also the demand for permanent contractors is equal to the crises level of 2009. Of the queried managers only 11% sees grow in the internal ICT-department. 13% speaks of a decreasing staff, which is caused by disappointing revenue of a few big ICT-companies over 2010. Also there is a decrease in labor caused by outsourcing to India.


I don't want to be drawn in to political discussions, but I do say that as someone says 'we welcome new engineers', he is not speaking for me. I nevertheless have a job, that is not the problem.

Sounds like you have been bitten by the Offshore / Outsource bug.

This is really weird situation.

- Companies want to do cost cutting so they outsource the work.
- Countries want to have outside brain power.So they allow work permit visa.

Somehow this end up in increasing unemployment rate in that country. How somebody else other than that country is responsible for this?

This thread is relatively old and the OP is probably not watching it right now. The discussion has sidetracked into whether immigrant developers are a bane or boon. That discussion, if anyone would like to start it, is best left for a new thread.

The said topic is also quite sensitive and I would appreciate if folks remember our 'Be nice' policy before making any comments.

Thanks
