Hi guys,

I just passed SCJP about a week ago and am definitely going to develop myself into java related technologies. However my team recently decided to go for the .NET technology and will be doing support more than development.
Obviously I want to leave. The situation is that the company just paid for my exam for SCJP and they want to send me to another non-java related training course in another city which is apprently costy as well. I am not sure if I should raise my leaving request now right after they paid everything. But if not on the hand, I am not happy to do the job that I am doing and I feel like wasting my time everyday. What should I do? Anyone has any good suggestions? Thanks.

hi wonkty wang............

i think you are in a trouble situation,but
still with a positive thought you must move ahead
as per i read... i think you are quit interested in java
but are forced to work in .Net.............
but but...........
other thing comes is when the company have supported you
for SCJP exam,later also in your career they
will support you with your interest
knowledge is never wasted....isnt it?.......in a company
you have to be flexible according to the companys requirements
if now you support the company by moving to a .Net training
may be in the near future they will take up development
and support you to move ahead in java...............as your career.

thats all from my side.............
now its up to you to leave this company or move
ahead with positive thought in your mind.

Dhwani->Its always too soon to quit.

All I can say is pursue where your passion is and also try not to burn any bridges. You can achieve this by being open and by communicating effectively. It is better to know more about a particular technology (e.g Java) and be really good at it than to know a little about a number of technologies like .Net, Java, VB etc. Evaluate your career aspirations and make a decision that is favourable to you.

Hi I would say that .Net is not a bad option to learn.
I learned it in my college days and now after I joined the new company I am working in both java and .net at the same time as per the requirement.
today i have asked to write some client side code in the Flex. So just started to learn that.

What I suggest that be master of say java and open to all other technologies as they come. the principal behind all them is same.
The concepts dosent chages.

and in case of Java and .Net both are very much similar.

So leaving a job just because of Java/.Net is not worth.

I do agree with what you said and I appreciate your advice.

But the thing that bother me the most is that our team is going to do more support rather than development and we will be using MS sharepoint pretty soon. And th development with .Net would be so minimal as I image.

I am not afraid of learning new stuff if it can get me further not side way.
I would like to write code rather than fixing bugs here or there.
