Welcome to CodeRanch!

Frankly speaking, both career and salary wise, better position is in the technology which you are good at. If you like Core Java, then you should pursue it (instead of unnecessarily running after JEE 'just because it has good market'). Same holds true for all technologies.

Hi Anayonkar, Thanks for your response. But I am actually a fresher/Beginner. I am trained on core java and as well as jee and I have equal & normal knowledge on both the things. I am neither an expert nor a novice in both the things.

Hi Campbell, Both are equal for me. Because I like java as a whole. But even the risk factors need to be considered. Right? That's the reason I posted this.

If you spend so much effort on the risk factors, you will give yourself another risk factor, that of not getting a job at all.
Go for a job in a company you like, where you like the people. Go for one or go for the other. And don’t spend so much time worrying.

You will probably be doing something completely different within 3 months of starting the job anyway!

Most development jobs are on enterprise Java (i.e. JEE). Core Java is used within JEE.
