Hi ,
Could you please suggest me?
In my current company a requirement has come where in 2 of my colleagues including me was asked to move to .net technology for a new project.
I am into java for 4 years. I am totally confused on what needs to be done in this situation.I was given a day to think on that.
My view point is learning new technologies is always good , but not in this way(java-->.net / .net to Java) .

Please suggest on what needs to be done.
Waiting for the reply..

If you're worried about the difficulty in moving, I wouldn't worry too much. Especially if you're moving to C#: C# and Java have a lot of similarities. I had to do a similar switch about a year ago, and didn't find it hard.

If that's not what you're worried about, maybe you could explain more what your concerns are?

How about say after an year or two the project get stabilized or if I want to switch to another company.
Definitely the other company would be looking for a person who has an experience in java(in my case) rather than .net..
I can understand that we can learn different frameworks in java while working on .net, but that becomes theory rather than
practical in terms of solving an issue/bug if it arise in future, once I move to other company(java) after working 2yrs on .net??.
