Java, Vignette, Career Question

Good day everyone,
I was wondering if someone here could help me make a career decision. I am a junior level java developer w/about 1 yr java experience, 4 yr CS degree. I have had good exposure and worked with Perl, VB, etc. And currently I am working in NYCity area
for a major financial company. I was hired a few months back as a Java developer. And recently I was placed on a project which uses 100% Vignette StoryServer technology. Basically content
publishing.
Now, Vignette is extremely hot and popular in this market. Almost all the major financial companies have purchased it, have consultants working, and have provided extensive training as well.
But mind you that Vignette is not programming in the sense that we Java developers normally know. It is more scripting and tag based.
So, am I doing a good thing by staying on or should I consider this as a reason to move on to another company?

I would greatly apprectiate any advice.
Thanks
 
Desperado

Since all I want to do is Java, I would leave. I prefer to do scripting and tagging in Java with JSPs and Servlets...
