Usually the people who are very good at what they're doing tend to be highly paid, no matter what technology/API it is they are working on.

That's really ture Ulf..

Here actually I am trying to figure out which are called hot technologies like
->Service Oriented Architecture- SOA
->Web Servies

I am not sure of the above list,pls advice..

There is only hype, no value about SOA & webservices. That is my opinion. Any fool can become expert on WSDL & SOAP formats within 1 hour.
go for j2ee.

I think you are splitting hairs with deciding which API to specialize in. I use any number of APIs (EJB's and web services included) to accomplish my tasks. One must be very flexible and continue to learn, not just master one API and claim to be valuable.
There's much more to programming than writing code. If I had to say my most valuable skills for my employer, my coding skills would probably be 3rd after being able to communicate well with a variety of technical and non-technical users (you can't code unless you can figure out what people want) and my domain knowledge (I have intimate knowledge of processes that are vital to this organization).
I get paid very well, but I have a lot of responsibility.

Thats' really ture Joe, in the long run I am planning to learn both the technologies, however in a given time scale I am not sure of which side to continue either in EJB under J2EE or under Web Services...

    Madhu,

    Well I'd suggest you avoid focussing just on technologies. Build expertise on the different problem domains. And yes if you want to choose a particular technology path, say for example Java,concentrate more on the 'how' of things rather than the 'what'. So if you want to learn say EJBs, channel your endeavours on learning the core RMI based architectural concepts of EJBs rather than simply cramming the EJB APIs. If you want to learn JMS, focus on messaging systems and their implementations ,in general.Once you get these going, mastering APIs/technologies would be a cakewalk.

    Coming to your question on SOA and webservices, let me tell you that they are not specific 'technologies'. SOA is an architectural concept and web services is an SOA implemenation methodology.J2EE could be viewed as a technology and you can very much have J2EE under the covers in a web services based application.So if you want to specialise in the Java world, you can't avoid learning core Java and J2EE. Hope that helps
