job market regarding to Java or .NET

Posts: n/a
Dear All,

I don't have industry Java programming experiences. I love Java. But it
seems these days almost all of Java developer positions require industry
level programming knowledge(or expriences).

My impression is .NET job market is very good at DC metropolitan area.
It seems many .NET openings can accept applicants just with school level
knowledge. So instead to spending huge amount of time and effort to
learn JBoss, Structs, EJB etc and to apply for Java developer jobs, it
may take me several weeks to learn C#, ASP.NET, etc., then I may qualify
for a number of web application jobs. My guess is small companies may
intuitively use Microsoft Windows and its related techonolgies .NET etc.
Many these small companies are hiring now. Only relatively big companies
use linux and Java. Their job opening requirements may be more strict.

My friend is a .NET person. He has many job offers and he strongly asks
me to learn .NET. He says that it is very easy to pick up.

I don't know which way I should go. I use linux everyday for my
scientific work. And I like Java. But for getting a job, if it is true
that .NET job is so easy to get, I might switch to Microsoft Windows and
learn .NET technology.

Thank you very much for your advices.
