      Khurram,

      There is no question that a developer with a good grounding in database (especially SQL) technology is valuable, but you should be careful of being either too general or too vendor specific in the technologies you study. JAVA is a good development technology in high demand, J++ is a good platform to use, but limiting with today’s emphasis on various wireless applications and internet appliances. While you are training, try to remain as agnostic to the vendor landscape as you can and concentrate on learning the underlying principles that will allow you to understand new technology and new opportunities.
      Good Luck out there!

      Hi Mr. Hussain,

      Oracle is the ultimate thing. regarding choice of DBA or Developer, basically it depends on what u choose, and ur liking. Same is the case with me, I am developing and also looking few DBA tasks but I like to be a DBA and now fully into that direction.

      So think…think and be focussed. If u decide to go for DBA passing of 1st paper will help i.e. no wastage of money.

      Hope it works……

      Regards / Vijay
