I am Java/J2ee developer,In my project there is some maintainance/enhancement is going on Flex.I have 3.5+ of j2ee exp.I think I should concentrate on backend side in J2ee and involve in designing and requirement analysis side.Also I have not worked on J2ee front side much,so I want to get specialize on backend side.but management side is pushing me in Flex What you think is it good for working on Flex ?

Its not much difference if you work on flex for sometime untill it really start taking your career in this only.

Flex is good and now a days many projects are mixing Java and Flex together.

I personally feel that there should not be any problem.

Dont know about other Ranchers

Lack of will power has caused more failure than lack of intelligence or ability.

It doesn't matter how much J2EE experience you have at all...

What matters is how quickly you can adapt / obtain a grasp for Flex (which is ActionScript).

If you are comfortable with JavaScript than you should understand Flex, no problem.

Good luck!
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
