If you are learning Java, you should probably ignore the Web element at first until you have all the language basics under your belt

Thank you so far,

Probably i should stick to ASP.NET because i am already good in that, I thought i will be adding better functionality  if i learn JAVA.

If you are good in ASP.Net then you probably should start learning SSIS. It is an ETL tool by Microsoft.

It will help you increasing your skillset.

This gives me an impression that it may not worthy the effort to learn JAVA if one is already good in say ASP.ENT. is that true.

What you achieve in Java, you can also achieve in .Net. Its just that these are from different vendors. So learning something else will improve your skill set.

Like , with ASP.NEt you can work with SQL Server & SSIS. - so this will improve your skill set in a single project. You can contribute in multiple skill set.

In a single project you can either have java or .net. or chances are very less. So if you learn java then you knowledge of .Net will decrease if you start working on Java regularly.  

My idea is to work on multiple skill set in the same project.

Hope this helps.
