I think at the very least, it sounds like a good opportunity to broaden your skillset (as much as I hate the 's' word). I cannot see, given your description of the task as one to translate then from .Net to Java as being something that would hurt your experience or your future hireability.

I think whether or not it's good to chnage technologies after two years depends largely on what the purpose of the change is (are you changing because it's a fad, or because it's an evolution?) and on the frequency you're changing career course (is this a pattern that you change every two years, or is this an abberation?). I wouldn't worry so much on this occasion, given the description you've enclosed.

Interesting, I was just wondering how useful a J2EE + dotNET skill set would be, other than the migration projects does it have any scope? and by the way migration of a dotNET web app to J2EE seems odd to me, I thought thing are going the other way around.

however, Yasmin I think you should grab the opportunity by both hands, learning dotNET after J2EE is very insightful and fun.

Depends on the project, I would suspect - I'm doing (lately) parallel development in Java and C#, to support two potential sets of customers, as an example. So it's not so much migration as doing it in one language and then sitting back and going, "Okay, so how do I do this in the other?" There's spots where it's been very easy, and spots where it's been very hard.

But, to answer the last point... I suspect that you're right, that most projects would be more likely to be Java -> .Net rather than .Net -> Java based on the simple fact that C# is so young comparatively (and the obvious "next" language for a Java developer moving to MS technologies). BUT, the editor I use (SharpDevelop) does convert from VB.Net to C#, and it wouldn't be too hard generally to move from that to Java, so reverse migration is possible...
