Would it be effective to identify the top 3 risks based on the non functional requirements in the assignment?
Also, do we need to do much documentation on these risks?

-- Building SOA based services.
-- Building Web applications
-- Integration via MQSeries, Webmethods, etc.
Newer systems are built with databases like Oracle, DB2, SQLServer, Sybase, etc. Older mainframe systems can be Web enabled using Java and message oriented middle-ware like MQSeries, WebMethods, TIBCO, etc. I have worked on a number of large enterprise projects.
Moving from being a mechanical engineer to a Java developer is the best decision I have ever made in my career. Engineering skills have certainly helped me a lot. I guess, I got into it at the right time.
Many companies have invested lots of money in Java, and I agree with Jesper.

I've been working as a Java software developer for the past 10+ years and I've worked for a number of different companies in different sectors, for example in the telecom, energy and transport industries. All those projects were for enterprise software running on big servers, and the software varied from web applications to mission-critical, high-performance middleware systems (i.e. systems without a GUI, processing data using databases and messaging) and also a large desktop application (using a Swing GUI).
I've been working as a freelancer since the beginning of 2009 and I haven't been out of work since I started for myself, despite the economic crisis. I did notice that the rates that companies are willing to pay have dropped in the past year, however. Still, I make a nice amount of money as an experienced Java developer.
I don't see the popularity of Java going down, Java developers are still in demand and I expect it to be that way for the forseeable future.
About your last question: Obviously I work at companies that have chosen to use Java. The Java world and for example the Microsoft .NET world seem to be quite separated. I see Java being used everywhere and don't encounter many .NET users, but I recently met a few .NET developers and they were asking me the opposite thing (why they only see .NET jobs and only few Java jobs).
