hello all,

i am new to web programming.

i have a very basic knowledge about jsp.

Currently, i am searching for a job.

someone told me that now a days, most of the websites are made using CMS.

after googling it, i found that open CMS is best the tool for developing websites in java.

can it be beneficial for me in getting job by learning cms at this stage.

please suggest me in this & i also want to know your views on the CMS technology and its future.

thanks in advance.

After working in CMS domain for about two years I noticed the following.

- Most of the CMS products works in combination with portals. You need to have knowledge of portals.
- You need to learn atleast one enterprise CMS product like Documentum or Vignette.
- Learning OpenCMS may give you basic idea but I don't think only knowing OpenCMS can get you a job in India.
- I don't recommend someone to learn CMS products just by knowing JSP. You should have good understanding of
web services, JMS, basic workflow concepts, dabase design, content analysis etc.

Perhaps you try to focus more on improving your programming expertise by doing SCJP and other certifications.

Just few thoughts worth sharing ...

With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
