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?
Will I learn something on this Documentum thing? Thanks.
Sean Clark ---> I love this place!!!
Me ------> I definitely love this place!!!
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.
An Interviews is a 2-way process and it is important to to ask the right questions. This will help ascertain if it is a right job for you. The job that aligns with your career objectives.

Where is the greatest demand for your products or services?
What criteria will be used to evaluate my performance?
What type of people succeed in your organization?
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?
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.
