    Other than the executives of SAS & Java, who
    wouldn't be permitted to say, I don't think
    anybody really knows if either company will
    be larger, smaller or bankrupt 3 years from
    now. If the jobs both pay the same, I'd take
    the one that would be more enjoyable. If
    they're both equal on that account too, I'd
    take the one where I think I'll make a more
    noticeable contribution to the company, in
    order to get better professional references
    for the next job.

    Java is much more general, with a wide open community. Java is based upon C/C++, so people who knew those went on to Java with the least amount of effort. Any future language of real, global acceptance will will be an extension of C++/Java.

    SAS is an extremely narrow and closed community, with much less opportunity. It will be more difficult to obtain SAS work, than Java work.

    The future is ripe for Java and questionable for SAS.

    Together, they would be fine. But, if you had to choose one, lean toward Java.
