hello, I am having around 8 years of total experience in which major portion is a Java and J2EE development. Lately I find custom application development is not what I aspire to be in future. Also for last 2-3 years, I have been working on technologies like websphere MQ, websphere message broker, web service development. So I came across world of integration/middleware technologies. I want to provide valuable inputs on following points:-
1. Does it make sense for me now to stick to middleware/integration profile? How is the future of my skillset-kind of professionals?
2. What should I supposed to learn to make chances of getting a good middleware job? I am based out of India(NCR region).
3. Generally does middleware jobs are of support kind of nature, I meant does it outside working hours job?
4. what is best term to search for middleware job suiting to my profile in job sites?

1. Does it make sense for me now to stick to middleware/integration profile? How is the future of my skillset-kind of professionals?


Its hard to say what the future is for any kind of position. If you enjoy working on middleware stick to it and make a niche for yourself.

2. What should I supposed to learn to make chances of getting a good middleware job? I am based out of India(NCR region).


It depends on what companies in Noida hire middleware professionals for. It also depends on who the clients of these companies are so it is hard to say.

3. Generally does middleware jobs are of support kind of nature, I meant does it outside working hours job?


At the risk of sounding like a broken record - it depends If the company is working on the integration itself, there is no question of support. If the integration system is in place and the company has a support contract, work can come visiting you on weekends.

4. what is best term to search for middleware job suiting to my profile in job sites?


Search for the technologies instead of the name of the position. MQ / Message broker / JMS / Tibco message bus / etc etc
