Migrating from Java/J2ee to SAP Netweaver

Hi Guys,

I need some advice from you on my career progress.

I was worked around 2 years on Java and have exposure on j2ee.Incedently

I was introduced to SAP Netweaver(which i didn't expected) offshore testing as my company is a SAP Partner. after few days, I reallized that this platform is most challenging and interesting if i make a progress in this. accordingly I started to collect information on various source of information on taking either EP or XI as my next carer. though i am not working in EP or XI, but interested in pursue them.

So, I am a new guy to SAP.I have read numerous articles on forum.still unable to get what i want. I am in confusion whether i have to take EP or XI or which component of Netweaver.

My question are

1>how relevant is java to SAP career change..?

2>does it affect my employability in a perticular technology.(as i had 2 years on java and now on SAP)..?

3>what is the road map that i have to consider now onwards?(I just working on SAP Netweaver platform for testing services which seems to be technical support more)

Thanks in Advance

Praveen

    <b>>how relevant is java to SAP career change..?</b>

    Only if you know Java you can take advantage from the various NetWeaver components: in XI you have Java Mapping, adapter modules, custom functions, Java proxy; in EP you have Java iView and java service; Java WebDynpro;Mobile Infrastructure.... As you can see, JAVA it's the common language of SAP already, and more in the future.

    <b>2>does it affect my employability in a perticular technology.(as i had 2 years on java and now on SAP)..?</b>

    You can became a NetWeaver developer with strong J2EE developer, for ALL NetWeaver products based on J2EE.

    <b>3>what is the road map that i have to consider now onwards?(I just working on SAP Netweaver platform for testing services which seems to be technical support more)</b>

    You have to study the J2EE, the SAP J2EE architecure and Service Oriented Architecture, than the NetWeaver Developer Studio. I suggest to start your development training with WebDynpro Java.

    Don't forget to look also on ABAP lanaguage, when you have time: you will find it always on your path.... 😊
