Hi ranchers,

i am in confusion what to choose out of java/j2ee and content management softwares like documentum,vignette and so on.?

I am working in java/j2ee and want to get job in u.s fast.
I have been told that content management domain is growing very fast and one can get job in it very fast.

can u please tell me should i stick to j2ee..or go for content management softwares.

Also can anybody tell me which content management software out of vignette/or documentum or any other i should learn so that my java experience will be used in it.

Please don't post the same question to more than one forum; I've deleted the other copies of this that you posted.

Most of the content management products are either built using Java/J2EE tech. or offer Java-J2EE APIs. And when you are working on a project which uses such products, you typically have to customize the product using the APIs to suit the customer needs. So even if you work on such products, (lets say interwoven) you will be working in Java-J2EE for customization(Unless the product has a proprietary templating language). Yes you may not get a chance to build the application by using basic building blocks of J2EE (such as EJBs, JMS, Servlets etc) because typically these products ofTen shield those details from you, but still you will be in working in Java-J2EE and getting good experience in an interesting ( and in demand ?) domain.

Hey Shashikant,

I am not sure you will get the s/w and the relavant documentation for interwoven/ documentum etc on internet. Because they are commercial products. You have to search for that on internet and if you find (leagal) version available for download post the link here so that others can benefit :-) . But if you want to get an idea about what is CMS then there is a opensource available have a look at it. You can download the s/w and learn it on your own. About what's in demand near NY /NJ area.. I am not qualified to comment on that :-) as I don't live there. But my guess is IBM products will be in demand as NY is finacial hub and I think ( you need to verify this) those companies use IBM products a lot. Like Webspher portal , IBM Content management , MQ etc.
