Neither is better or worse, but the barrier to entry for Android is much, much lower for a Java developer.

finding J2EE very vast .... and when you introduce to new technology till then you have something new in the market. I know it's a dynamic field but there's some learning capacity too... that's why I am thinking about these running mobile technologies..

Hi,

Learning to develop for iPhone & iPad can be very steep compared to other platforms. Oppurtunities will be there if you have the creativity along side logic because creativity matters a lot here. Most of the career oppurtunites comes form startup's rather than well established companies.
As far as i'm concerned, i learned about the apple's app ecosystem, publishing, do and don't's, interface designing and mobile development, Apple's language Objective-C and many others.

I'm a Adobe Flex,Adobe AIR,Java,J2EE,Spring developer at office and i have a lot of resposiblities there.
So if you are a busy person like me first of all you have work out of your skins to learn iPhone development. I'm saying this from my personal experience as i have already developed an app called "Blogspace" and it's in AppStore.

Rather than thinking about career, you should have the interest and passion for mobile developement and this is what is going to make you successfull in this platform.

Hi Kaustubh,

Being a Java developer, its really easy to work with Android OS, but its really good if you are aware with iPhone/iPad developments.
If you can deal with Objects, both are easy for you

Thanks & Regards
Pratik Goswami

I was talking about not learning Android/iOS development. Besides, there are other things that can have a negative impact on a career besides not knowing specific technologies.

As long as you are in J2EE you have to keep learning something new. I would suggest that you move to some other line like DB or Mainframes if you are not keen on learning every week.

Expanding your knowledge base is never a bad career move.

Write it down. I use a personal wiki, along with wads of code snippets, so I don't have to remember everything.

Agreed. You have to be flexible and you have to keep learning to survive and grow in this industry.
In the past 3.5 years, I have worked on PowerBuilder, C, core Java, Hibernate, J2ME and Android. Imagine what circumstances those would've been.
Besides, if you know how to program, learning a programming language that follows the paradigm you've learnt becomes easy.

That being said, you must not try to learn each and every new programming language or technology that comes up. Wait and watch for some time. See if that technology will last and come in the main stream. Then make a choice.

Objective C has a pretty steep learning curve. But then again. There's less competition

IMHO, I think if some one knows Java then he will picks Obj-C in no time.
Both have a lot in common.

But in my openion C has more to learn than java and many on native codes of java are written in C only. It is very strong and interesting.

C actually has *less* to learn than Java, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's *easier* than Java. I think it could be argued either way.

But you also agree with me that it's not easy to understand C's behaviour ... and hard to code in it ...So hardcore programmers enjoy to work in C while in JAVA they made it little easy for coder to code

Even we can't "prove" that future of Java is good !!
Its not mathematics that we can say 3+2 = 4+1 = 5 and hence proved.
