However, it is difficult for you to convince those employers that you are the right person. They hire you not because you have 10 years of experiences in the field they are not interested in. If you try to explain that "embedded SQL" is like using SQL in Java( not truee exact exactly),
they would not like to listen to you. Just like men's hunting for a girl friend: The man just want to have a beautiful one even those he himself is ugly-looking. If you are not beautiful and you try to convince the man that you will be very caring after the marriage, they generally do not trust you. Of course, most of the men in this world have to marry not-so-beautiful wives.
AS/400 is no longer mainstream, though it will exist for a while. But you
have a long way to go. As an IT professional, you have to embrace new technologies constantly. I have ever taught a Java student with AS/400 background. I found she seemed to come from another world. Her sight is narrowed to that AS/400 box. She was at her 40's. She just knew AS/400 stuff. She came to learn Java because their company has decided to throw away AS/400 boxes. Unfortunately, she was not successful in learning Java.
I'm not encouraging you to hug Java. But I do hope you learn something new. IT does not hurt you.
