Opportunity to change from .NET to J2EE

By kipplummer ·
I have 4 years of .NET development experience (3 years of VB6 and ASP experience before that) and I have the opportunity to change from my current position as a .NET developer to a position that will be on a Java (J2EE) platform. I have Microsoft certifications and have really been .NET (C#) focused for years (with minimal experience in Java). I am looking for opinions on if this sounds like a good career move (to expand my skill set) -- or a bad career move (to risk falling out of practice in .NET -- in which most of my career skills have been based). I realize my potential new employer is taking a bit of risk by hiring me since I have little Java experience (but they feel I am good OO developer and I could pick up Java quickly based upon my compentency in C#). I do not know of anyone who is really good in BOTH platforms... so I have reservations about switching platforms at this point in my career. Any thought/opionions?

I think You Can

by Ahmed Ali In reply to Opportunity to change fro ...

I have 4 years of experience in Microsoft Technolgy and i have completed my certification as well. One year earlier i have shifted my self to Java and nowadays I am planing for the J2EE Architect certification. So I think language and tool does not matter the basic thing is you must know good programing practices and also you must have good problem solving and analyzing skill. Becaz you can learn any tool and one more thing If you want to be a good Architect I think you should have cross technologies experience so that you are able to design and propose good architecture solution to the client.
