Here you are
1. Both Windows NT and Unix (various flavors) are popular. If you are just framiliar with Windows, or vice versa, you will lose some opportunities. But you can still get a job if you are good at some application technologies. You should claim you can work both on Windows and Unix. Pls forget about MC J++, which is not true Java! 2. There are a lot of IDEs. Some people even use raw JDK and make files. If you are good at one tool, say Jbuilder, i don't think you will have difficulties in shifting to Visual Cafe, or Visual Age for Java. You had better put at least 3 IDE names in your resume. 3. Not understand your point here. 4. For a java developer, it is natural for him/her to use JDK libraries, including Java Swing. Again, Microsoft and Java are in two different tracks. It seems MFC is not so popular.. In a true project, people may include some other libraries. For instance, if you work on IBM WbSphere, there would be a huge Java library for you. IT seems to me that basic Java technologies are more important than some proprietary libraries. If you give me a library and its API doc, I can immediately figure out hoe to use. This is comletely different from the situation in C++. -jabber(jabber) 2000-9-1

Should be specialized in some fields
You have known enough stuff. Platform is not a problem for you if you are not a System Adminitrator. For instance, I have worked on IBM AIX, Sun Solaris, and HP-UX. But all the Unix machines looks the same to me, because I am just a user and I don't work as a root. Java is a good direction. It is now a hipe for companies to adapt Java technolgies, whatever the project is. In particuler, more and more Web sites are be developed using Java Servlets and JSP technologies. You have have hands-on expriences, not just some textbook knowledge, In the developement environemnt, Windows NT workstation seems to be indispensible, even there is a Unix box. Usually, people run a server on Unix box and write code on Windows NT workstation. Sometimes, people use Hummingbird Exceed or similar software to connect to Unix box and similate an X-terminal on the Windows NT. Say again, if you are a mature developer, you should be able to work on Windows NT and Unix. Of course, you need not be experts in these systems. You are just users. focus on Java technologies. Good luck -jabber(jabber) 2000-9-2
