I was slightly surprised J2EE was the top IT skill, I don't really know why but I was sure so many adverts would use that word as it seems slightly on it's way out. The database stuff like SQL and Oracle is very high as you would expect. JSP is quite low down the list and I thought this would be something to do with Ajax but that isn't on the list at all. Disappointingly OO is down to number 10, below Degree. It's interesting that other programming languages feature quite highly.
This set of data also interested me

it shows that Weblogic is the most popular Application platform (well the most popular mentioned) although Websphere is number 6 application development which would indicate it was perhaps more popular. I was interested that .NET featured so highly with Struts and Servlets still high up there.
Finally it has a section on what development applications. I was very surprised that Junit was above Ant. This data must be a bit old I am thinking because Eclipse is mentioned but there is no sign of NetBeans. Subversion seems to be the most popular version control although CVS isn't mentioned whilst Visual SourceSafe is.
Where are all the Java developers working, mainly in Finance and Banking (if the figures are to be believed)
So in the end what can you make of it all, Don't trust statistics.
