    portal related consultancy can be divided into 2 or 3 broad categories like below:

    <b>Portal Implementation:</b>: You need to install portal software, decide upon possible landscape, hardware sizing, do pre & post installation configurations etc. This does not require Java programming language - but basic knowledge about JDK and its related environment parameter setting would always help.

    Portal / Application Administration: Here you administer and configure an installed and running portal. Here also you dont require Java programming knowledge much. Again Java related system setting knowledge would be much helpful but the programming is not required. You can get the complete administration guide Here">Here> - which tells you about System Admin, User Admin and Content Admin one after another.

    <b>Portal Content Development:</b> The content development is the part where you create new content (pages / iViews etc) for an installed portal. Here some part of the content can be developed with existing portal templates - doesnt require Java programming. But the other part would be creating your own component by coding. Here - JAVA the programming language is most helpful. You need to know core java, servlet & JSP programming to begin with - and then you need to learn portal's own programming model using the servlet/JSP as the backbone.

    I would suggest you to start learning Java as programming language straightaway - you have hundreds of tutorials available on internet for learning Java which can be much helpful. Have a wonderful journey in the great EP !!!
