Hi All,

I went ahead for a java interview and during the course of the interview he mentioned that I will be working on a Java Documentum project?

I scratch my head because I have not heard about this. Question will this help my career? I have a fair knowledge of JSP/Servlet/Spring/Struts and front end (Javascript/CSS/Jquery) but I am looking into landing a job on EJB and Web Services? I have no knowledge about these two technologies actually.

Will I learn something on this Documentum thing? Thanks.

Documentum is a content management system (CMS). You'll learn something and gain experience, but it may not be what you want to learn if you only want a EJB/web service job. I think gaining experience in different things is a good thing.

If successful, what technologies, frameworks, and platforms will I be working on?
How much responsibilities will I be given in my position?
Are you following any agile development practices or have any company specific development processes?
What are the significant challenges affecting your project/business today?
Are you planning to take any future direction in terms of the development processes, technology/framework selection, architecture and design, in-house versus offshore development, etc?
Can you describe the project that I will be working on if I am successful?
How big is the team?
When can I expect to hear from you regarding this position?

You will. I learned documentum for a wee bit and then moved to some other project. It was fun while it lasted.

Documentum should be a good exposure, I am working on its competitor Alfresco and it is indeed interesting.

CMSes (and DMSes) are becoming more and more common. You'll likely encounter more than one during the course of your career; it's an API to learn like for any other 3rd party library/product. No job will involve just EJB/WS but no 3rd party APIs.
