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.

-- Integration technolgies are very popular. You can learn a message oriented middleware like MQSeries, web Methods, Oracle Service Bus, or Tibco.

-- You can become a specialist in Websphere or Weblogic (I think now called Oracle) application servers.

-- JavaScript is very widely used now a days. You can learn Java Script along with a framework like JQuery or EXT JS.

-- Do your research by chcking out the local advertisements to see what your prospective employers looking for, for example JSF, Spring, EJB3, Hibernate, etc. You can also check the trends at

-- Learn a new scripting language that is gathering momemntum like Groovy, Python, Clojure, etc. Check --> http://www.tiobe.com/index.php/content/paperinfo/tpci/index.html
