General J2EE: Java Swing

  1. Java Swing (2 messages)

    I have been developing J2EE applications for about 4yrs. I have allways been interested in working with and developing desktop applications and am taking a serious look at learning Swing. I wanted to know if there were many job opportunities for Swing developers just like J2EE developers or should I continue to focus on J2EE.

    With the Industry trend pointing towards web based UI frameworks and technologies like Ajax, not sure how much of a good focusing on Swing would do. It would pretty much limit you to thick client apps.

    There are plenty of opportunities in London for developers with Java Swing experience. It's quite a niche area at the moment so if you decided to follow that route you wouldn't have a problem getting a job.
