no, php is not cursed.
do you want to switch to Java? then start learning Java.
but do understand: if you want to learn Java in detail, be prepared for a one year full-time course. after that, you'll have completely mastered the basics.

don't underestimate it. sure, you have a great advantage by already having programming experience, so you might get some topics faster than those who don't, but still, Java is not something you should try to learn in a "learn Java in 24 hours" course.


Java spring is where you want to be money wise. Take a look...
Dotnet jobs also seem to command a better salary it might also be worth investigating before moving to java.


hmm, from my experience looking at job openings last year Spring is on the way out, at least getting a lot less popular.
Of course that might be regional :)

ADF is getting popular, cloud computing, REST.
