Is it a wise career move for a software engineer who specializes in j2ee and has the java certifications to pursue a .NET opportunity? I think it might be a good move since I want to be known as a software engineer instead of a java developer. I believe a software engineer uses a language as a tool and has a skill set that is not dependent on language. Yet it is intimidating to switch knowing how much I invested in java. Is it a good move? If so, how likely is it with someone with only j2ee to get a. NET job?

Maybe. There will be a niche market for people who have both. OTOH you will be unlikely to be regarded as a j2ee expert if .NET is a major part of your skills base.
