Hi,
I've done my bachelors in Computer Science and was working for the past 2 and a half years in PHP and MySQL. Now I'm planning to change my career path to IBM Websphere Administration. However, changing directly from PHP to Websphere seems quite impossible. So I've planned to take up Java course and get the concepts of Java and do some practicals. After that, I would like to know, how I can get into a position as Java developer in a company, since I'm workin in the PHP for the past couple of years and one more will also be added in PHP. My target is to reach Websphere Administration. I'm planning to shift from PHP to Java. After that, I'll work as Java developer for a year or two and finish the WAS Certification/Training and then opt for Websphere Jobs. I would like to know if practically it is possilble to change my career like this and reach the target of Websphere Admin. I'm from India and I'm 23 years. I would like to get into webpshere administration atleast within next 3 to 4 years. Is that possible? What are the stuffs that I should do from no to reach this target. Guide me in detail.

-- Thanks in advance.
