Regarding XI's future Enhancements

Hey guys

i have noticed one thing in XI and its that most of the functiinalities have been provided via ABAP as well as Java,which gives me a Idea that SAP is covering both flanks and thats a gud thing,What i want to know is that in future will the thrust be more on Java or ABAP in XI(in terms on development).will Java replace ABAP or ABAP replace Java or no one will replace no one:)

I know its kinda hard to predict the future but just want to get ur views.

I think Java has an edge over ABAP:)

    just my view: ABAP is not a replacement for any thing and at the same time no other language is a replacement for ABAP. java will not replace all the abap functionalities. most of the sap business process lies in the core of abap....and abap is 4th generation language that controls most of complex busniess logic in sap.....except kernal other basis compnents are written in abap. earlier in one discussion i came to know that abap is the only language that goes very near to all the properties of OOPS concept than java.

    <b>ABAP can't die because it is the eaeist dev tool . It can be easily seen that if you see development cost ABAP development can be completed in less time as compared to Java.</b>
