    Well

    it depends on your interest which netweaver module to go for but both (XI and EP) are good and as a netweaver professional you have to have knowlegde in all modules but for perfection you can pick any one or two like combination of XI and EP will be really good.

    As far as Java concerned yes yoy need working Java knowledge, so that for example for XI you can code either mapping or simple and standard user functions as need arrives.

    for better starting material help.sap.com and SDN are best way to start with. SAP also provides education/certifications about this topics.

    Thanks.

    Hi Priti,

    As nilkanth had already said, it purely depends on your interest.Both XI and EP are very interesting topics, and are very hot in the market.And definitely, a knowledge of Java is highly essential for both these technologies, more so for EP than XI would be my take. Anyways, for basics into XI, you can take a look at these...

    JDBC Receiver: exact SQL statement

    /message/527697#527697 [original link is broken]

    And after you are done with the documentation probably you can go through this scenario,

    Also check the following threads which might help you a little more,

    One of the most powerful feature of XI, Business Process Management:

    Once you go through these links and are a bit aware what all XI objects do, you can try a simple "File to File Scenario" which would help you to understand XI objects in a much better manner.

    For help on this scenario go through this blog it is in two parts thus I am providing both links below:

    Hi Priti,

    My suggestion(really prejudiced 😉) is, get trained in XI.

    Reason:

    1) A lot lesser Java( as compared to EP). Now, I am not saying that you will not have to write java code, but atleast in the beginning mappings, you probably can utilize ABAP/XSLT/Graphical.

    cheers,

    Prashanth
