Role of an ABAP Developer in XI

Hi,

I had worked on R/3 as an ABAP dev and I am planning to move to SAP XI.

I had gone through the XI fundamentals and I see that for an ABAP developer its a switch from an ERP to EAI tool. Before I start off with XI I thought to write to the right people to get myself cleared of my concerns.

I request anyone of you to provide me info on the below queries.

1) Is ABAP knowledge helpfull in SAP XI projects.

2) Is it possible to build the mapping logic in ABAP.

3) Is it mandatory to learn Java.

4) Will my knowledge on ALE/IDOCs and workflow will someway be helpfull to me in SAP XI.

5)4) Finally, Is XI recommened for an ABAP developer?

Thanks,

Ram.
