I have an total IT experience of 4 years completely in Java/JEE, development.

Prevoisly i have worked on web application development in Java, Servlet JSP, Struts and JSF.

Also having a good knowledge of EJB 3.0 and Spring , have practised in it in a demo projects.

I have also worked on ORM like Hibernate. In this i have an experience of 1 year.

I have also worked on Ajax,
Also used jQuery in Javascript development,
Used jQueryUI pluggin too.

Now, my Question is ,
My company is going to shift me to some other project which will be completely on Android .

So how does this will effect my carrer .

I was looking myself to be in completely in Java/JEE stack. I thought that gromming my career in this will help me advance technically and Financialy.
I mean, Java/JEE is everywhere, be it Banking, Finance, Healthcare or tourism etc....

If at all looking at my past experience if i shift to android developement , how will this effect me.
Android has just now started, where will i stand in future if using Android development or any Tablet or Iphone development.

Please give me a suggestion, should i go in android development of should i continue working in Java/JEE development.

What will be the feature of Android as well as iPhone and tablet developement

I think Android will add another dimension to your profile. Go ahead and join the Android project.

What are your interests and career objectives? Android is certainly a hot topic now and widely in demand. It is a rather different environment than JEE, though.

where will i stand in future if using Android development or any Tablet or Iphone development.

Impossible to say, the mobile world moves much too quickly. Learning new skills is always a plus in my book, though.
I agree. Here's the link:
