I am a Java/J2EE developer and looking for a change in EAI field. I would like to know the future of EAI and what are the skill sets one must posses to become a EAI guru.

I would look to work with a consulting organization that specializes in EAI, most big 6 firms do. At that job your experiences will provide you with the skills.
