Hi Folks,

I noticed that there are some jobs that need Java Developers who also need to take on the role of Enterprise Content Managment (ECM) developers. The job description mentions that the candidates need to have Java/ J2EE/ Struts/ Servlets/ JavaScript/ EJB knowledge and also have exposure to ECM tools like Documentum, open text and FileNet. Has anyone come across such a job requirement before where one has to take on both Java and ECM? This ECM thingy is new to me, so I am reading up about it on the net. If anyone has any knowledge or experience of how Java and ECM go together or how the career path is for such a role, do share with me. Thanks.

regards
John.

Hi John,

Yes. The job requirement for Java and ECM products goes hand in hand. I'm in Java space with specialization in WCM (Web Content Managment) tools previously Vignette now working in mainstream J2EE. The reason behind this is, if the ECM product is Java based, that means there may be APIs exposed and we need to develop custom modules in Java to interact, communicate with ECM.

As for the future for this kind of roles goes, depends on need. Some combinations are hard to get like FileNet + Java + Spring. Having specialized experience in ECM tool along with Java is always better than purely relying on Java. Now a days there are lots of Java developers in market and companies do really filter for best Java gurus. On the other side, if you have specialized skill like Documentum with Java, the chances for job are higher.
