I have been programming mainly on Java  in my career.However in my current company most of the work is in on Dot Net where I work on Visual Studio since last 2 years.

I think one way to be in touch with Java is to practice on the weekends.Working on both dot net and Java brings some challenges.The main challenge that I have been  facing is that since I have been working mostly on Visual Studio since last 2 years , the Eclipse shortcuts  which I knew well have been overridden in my mind with Visual Studio shortcuts.If I try to practice Java on weekend I would often subconsciously try to use Visual Studio shortcuts on Eclipse  and vice versa too by mistake. As such I have lost rythem when I try to practice Java on the weekends on Eclipse.

Could anyone please advice me how do I stay in touch with Java by practicing on the weekends ?Thanks

1) Writing code & working on self-taught projects.
2) Changing your job to Java based development

Thanks.So ,you suggest to go back to Java (when I am currently into Dot Net in current organization ). I think this suggestion makes sense. In that case ,I hope whatever time I have spent on Dot Net is not fully waste in my career and this knowledge shall be atleast indirectly helpful when I switch back to Java.
