Default Career direction advice needed

Hello !

What could be good and worth career development direction for person with solid experience in a prepress and as Java developer ? I'm finished training course lead by Java champion and got good package of knowledge to start as Java programmer (core Java, SWING, iTEXT, Applets, Generics, Streams, Serialization, Multithreading, Sockets, JDBC, Annotations, RMI, Servlets, JSP, introduction to JMS, MOM, EJB). Most of technologies I've taught are oriented to the WEB development and are the total U turn in my work and it means the throwing out my experience in a prepress area, as I think. How could I implement my Java skills "staying in same shoes" ? May be there is some programming technologies, frameworks related to printing and prepress where I could dig deeper with hope of the better career perspective.
Any advices are very appreciated.

You could start looking for someone who needs custom RBA as well as code for Prinergy. There are companies out there who need people with an infusion of both. Prepress is not dead it has taken a hit, just reapply it in different areas such as Packaging, Large format workflows, web to print, etc.
I have been in the prepress game for 32 years. I haven't got a clue where I will be next year but just keep plugging away.
