Please advice about cordys after 9 years of Java / J2EE experience, I am typically not interested for this, but since there is a crunch of project, I am asked to work on this, my concern will it add value to my presence knowledge or career prospective.
Note: I am working as a lead and thinks that lot needs to learn on Java/ J2EE.
i have a working Experience with one BPM tool called Metastorm,i is basically a work flow automation kind of stuff, so there is not much interesting areas for the J2EE developers. I my perspective there is huge area to learn but which i am not interested and not relates to J2EE areas.
During the course of a career you need to become familiar with many toolkits/frameworks/3rd party products. What's so special about this one in particular? You'd still be doing Java development, right?

Actually it�s depend on what kind of demand is there, presently J2EE with hibernate / struts / spring is in demand, if one is having experience in same he can refine his knowledge and go into market. If we concentrate on specific tool than you will be using all API�s like in cordys you going to use the tool and implements the API you can�t develop your design or architectural skills, I am not willing to change my profile from J2EE development to cordys consultant. Please advice give your thoughts on this.
My instinct says BPM will surely add value to you.

You'd still be using all kinds of Java APIs, and now Cordys on top of that. So, if anything, it enhances your value because you gained knowledge. It's not like you'll rapidly forget what you've learned so far.
