It would not be a bad idea to be skilled in both ASP and JSP, as a number of open positions found in a recent job search asked for the two skill sets.

A quick peek into the job openings listed on SimplyHired’s job engine for ASP and JSP showed some overlap for those skillsets. The site showed 2,674 job openings, 1,084 of them full-time, containing the two page-building languages in the descriptions.

JSP demand remains brisk. The job search results showed 18,218 matches for JSP; 7,444 of the matches retrieved were for full-time positions. IBM had 199 of those full-time results, the most of any non-recruiter firm.

The ASP world showed even greater demand, with 24,879 matches in the job results, and 10,508 of them for full-time work. The top three employers seeking those developers were pharmaceutical services company Caremark, Inc; the Defense Logistics Agency, part of the Department of Defense; and high-powered printing firm RR Donnelley.

After writing a similar article about ColdFusion this week, one reader wrote in to say a better comparison would be ColdFusion to ASP and JSP rather than .NET and Java.

Fair enough. Here’s how ColdFusion job openings looked at press time: 2,882 matches, 1,048 of them full-time. Of those full-time employers, Raytheon was the top non-recruiter firm with 14 ColdFusion openings; Science Applications International Corporation listed 12, and Northrop Grumman showed 11.
