One should be flexible to work in both .NET and J2EE. Flexibility makes one survive tough times.

You are having the best of both worlds; carry on with the .net project so you can get rounded in both. .net is as hot as J2EE.

Be carefull where you are ( ) here is JAVA forum,I have one year experience working with .net I gained nothing except being "expert tool users" but with JAVA and J2EE I feel that my knowledge increased.
I think J2EE is better. Yes of course it is good to know both technologies, I agree with others too,BUT........

If you learn .NET, you are "good at using a software package" in the same way you would learn MS Access and be tied to one platform. If you learn Java, you are learning to write software on any platform you wish. .NET Developers are not **really** programmers (its an insult to those who are). They use this one tool to do everything, hence why .NET is popular because it is a "one-stop" tool without the need for 3rd-party applications.
