Need thoughts about career path

Hi guys, I have a question about the career path.
My background, more than 7 years programming experience,
two years experience in programming Java and four years in C#.
I also have been a system analyst for three years,
and I am familiar with OOAD and design pattern.

Currently, I am trying to find a new job,
but I found that it's difficult to persuade myself to try Java related job opportunities.
because the last time I wrote codes in Java was almost three years ago.
And I have little experience in Spring and Struts framework.
I know what the frameworks are and what they do, but my current job uses .NET,
so I have no chance to deploy then in production.

No matter search the programming position or software project management position in Java,
I am pretty sure lacking experience in popular frameworks will be a reason that
the company rejects me.
Or perhaps I will be questioned that I have not written Java codes for a long period.

So, should I stick to the .NET while finding jobs?
Or just give a try to Java related opportunities?

Thanks!

You'd probably find it easier to get a .NET job. If you want a Java one, you'll need to practice on your own to get current hands on Java experience.

Alternatively, you can try for jobs where both .Net and Java are used. But, it will not be easy though.
