Need a correct path

I have almost 1 yr 8months of experience, the client for which we offer service to, is a telecom company ,it is an OSS(operations support system) project. The thing is that this project doesn't have much scope in terms of coding, the kind of work that i have done so far involves overriding methods, basically customizing them, and recently i have worked on the Active Directory integration with the applications user directory,i have recently got SCJP 6 certified.
Right now i am looking for a new job that offers me something more in terms of coding and also money
I am mainly interested in core java development,i don't like servlets,JSPs .....
Recently i am also going through Design patterns,Algorithms,Data Structures.
But these days whenever i go through job profiles,people look for j2ee experience if you look for experience java profiles.
My question is that should i stick to core java only or should i start with jsps,servlets,different frameworks(i don't have any working knowledge on them)?
As i fear that only core java might not be sufficient...Please help me out....

Welcome to JavaRanch!

While core Java has its uses, it is quite limiting career wise to just know that.

I think not much job just need core Java ... core Java is the fundamental which expand to JEE / JME ... and others ...

If you like programming job in more backend or research , well ... maybe C/C++ is a better way ( you need to research it , since I am not in this area )

If you want to continue in java , JEE is the better path (either with or without other framework e.g. Spring, Hibernate ...)

The more you know , the more chances you get ... the deepest you get into , the higher you can climb ... the wider you go, the wiser you are ... should be in this way
