Re: I'm confident about my future career path as a Java/JVM ...

Java is going to stay for many years still, although I only see it going strong on the server side.

On the desktop side, my employer is now focused on HTML 5, Qt/C++, WPF/C# stacks depending on the customer.

On the mobile side, my employer is focused on HTML 5, C++, C# stacks, depending on the customer.
