The e-commerce boom is creating new Java vacancies at a rate of more than 1,000 a month, according to our SSP "e-people" survey. There has never been a better time for those with old-economy skills to retrain and what e-employers value in your "legacy" skill-set is method.

The attraction of Java, as well as portability, is the "idiot-proofing" that prevents inexperienced programmers making the kind of mistakes possible in C++. In the rush to train up the masses, what is being lost is the academic discipline that used to come with a rigorous background in computer science.

That, plus the experience that tells old hands to test, back-up and document new systems, is what makes old-economy programming skills well worth transferring to the e-world.

That is why smart companies such as BA are cross-training their legacy coders with Internet skills.
