I am from java, jsp, servlets, oracle, plsql background. My profile was that of a team leader handling a team of 4-5 people depending on the size of the proeject.

I was mostly into web-based solutions. My job required me to be in each phase of SDLC cycle, right from requirement gathering to deploying the application till support of the software. I used to code in jsp and pl/sql.

In my new company, I work on Filenet a framework for developing content management and business process management.

I would like to know the long term career prospects and growth in filenet. Input from anybody, who knows anything in filenet, will be greatly appreciated.

Hello fellow rangers

This is very important for me... Any kind of input on the above query will be helpful for me.

A point that I missed before. I have more than 5.5 years of work exp and 3 years in IT. Since I am not familiar with the technology, I have to start from ground zero and not from my previous position.

Do respond. I am waiting.
Thanks in advance

Adrian Perry.

In my opinion Java, J2EE will be better when compare to tools. The FileNet tool is having quite good demand but growth wise Java, J2EE should be better.

As Mr.Reddy suggested no harm in learning special tools but try not to stay too long with specialiazed tools.
