      Although Java is losing some terrain to other programming languages, it’s still common. So you have 2 possible directions, I think:
      1. Find a Java/J2ee job. Your experience is clearly a good point, and you can easily explain the gap in your IT CV.
      2. Find a developer job in another language. It might be junior at first, but for experienced developers (and it seems you are) in a good team it’s very well possible to catch up. And there still is a lot of need for developers.

      The best would be to find a company that still uses Java but offers you the opportunity to become an expert in newer languages while they shift languages themselves. Then, as I said, an experienced developer might be a very good asset to have. But I don’t know if there are many such companies.

        Thanks Kees_B for your advice. I think upskilling myself and doing some online internships would be a good way to start again. What do you think?
