Need Career Advice

I have 11 years experience in software industry mostly as a developer. From last 4 years I am self employed. For past 7 years I have been working on j2ee platform developing and maintaining single product.

Since I have been working on the same product development/maintainence for a such long period, sometimes I get worried that I am getting out dated. I am not sure how long this project might continue.. can go for years too.

What should I do at this point of my career? Just go with the flow and handle the situation when I have to look for other job. Or is there anything else I need to be doing now.

Your thoughts will be appreciated.

Get meta with me! What pursues us is our own obsessions! But not this tiny ad:
Java file APIs (DOC, XLS, PDF, and many more)
