Emerging enterprise technologies. The quickest way to know which techlogies is to do this:

open up a job site.
search for java jobs ..for exp level a couple of yrs more than what you have.
optionally, mention a salary range that you wish to earn after a couple of yrs.
see what technologies the job is asking for.
