It is a fact that technology is changing, that new needs need new solutions and that no mater how we hate it, change happens. You need to be prepared to deal with change, or become irrelevant and less marketable. Frankly, if I were a hiring manager and you displayed that kind of attitude in an interview, I'd probably disqualify you on the spot.
Hmm. I tend to disagree a little. Yes, keep up to date with technology and what is happening in your own field, but keeping up with the latest paradigms? Surely not.

I seem to have managed pretty well keeping up with Oracle as best I can, but I've managed to miss out on Java (personal hatred for it!), C#, "agile", Whatever on rails and so on. These things come and these things go.

Having said that, with Oracle behind it, it is probably a good idea to investigate the technology.
