I work for one of the biggest names in IT. If you want to get work for a client, you would be best served by knowing Java. If I had my wishes, I would do C# or Python, but those are in far less demand with Python being a trickle of opportunities. My current and last project even included mainframe with one converting mainframe batch jobs to Java Spring Batch.

Spring is an excellent technology: boring, dependable, never surprises, and you can upgrade for free new features with minimal breakage. That's exactly what I want when I have to deliver value with as predictable a pace as possible.
