I am Basically a java developer and completed the certification in SCJP1.6. I have worked on 3 different projects in java. Recently my employer has given me a task in .net project which takes few months to work. I feel depressed and feel like I am away from java and working on .net would not help me. Is my thinking right? Is it fine to learn both the technologies?

Technology is just a tool, like a hammer for a worker, focus on the right thing.

I've worked with .Net. I survived the experience. Admittedly, if I'd been pressed to do nothing but .Net, I'd have looked for another job, since I don't like being tied to Microsoft (and I don't trust MS not to do things that won't work under Mono).

However, as an occasional diversion, my .Net experience, like the work I've done in Python has broadened my outlook, allowing me to see alternative ways of solving problems. And that, I think, is one of my greatest assets.

++ on that. Exposure is always good. If you are exposed to tiny amounts of other technology, that can only be a good thing.

And the bank is the bank, and the mortgage the mortgage! Fully agree.

The only thing is stick to a few (like 2) technologies, since if you have a CV with Java, C++, Delphi, C#, and no specialism, it's also not good.

To my surprise, I got a call from IBM as there is an requirement for java developer with .net knowledge.
I been working on this .net for few days from now. I involved in the log4net implementation. Its really good and there is no big difference in the ASP and C#.
 
With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
