    Hi!

    A bit "strange" qustion 😊 ..however: NetWeaver consists of multiple "parts" and each differs.. XI, Portal, BW, Mobile & MDM. Generally - all development is done in Java, ABAP or both. But you have to decide, what will be your field of specialization.

    As suggested, Netweaver is the underlying infrastructure that many platforms run on.

    Netweaver is the PLAT form for SAP's initiative to make their client server based computing platform more open and agile.

    Netweaver do have a JAVA/J2EE container and an ABAP container.

    Netweaver have an extenssive inter communication mechanism using R3 and HTTP protocol to make both system work together.

    J2EE side is the more open and agile side of Netweaver.

    J2EE side is a J2EE certified container, as like any other J2EE container from vendor like IBM, BEA, Oracle and Open source group, it support all features of J2EE such as EJBs, JMS, JCA, JMX, Clustering etc

    Netweaver administation is a good profession if you have back ground of middleware administation to give a chance find yout luck.

    if you are a pure java/j2ee developer, you can work as a Netweaver J2EE developer. Just like any other vendor SAP also has a development platform using Eclipse framework, which can be used to develop any JAVA/J2EE/Web Service components.

    If you are ABAP guy, you can try your luck with ABAP work bench and slowly move to both ABAP and JAVA side of Netweaver.

    If you are a BASIS guy you can extend your admin knowledge in R3 to J2EE middleware also.

    If you are specialization guy such as ESB using JAVA, Portal using JAVA etc then you can move directly to same specialization area in Netweaver such as

    ESB is XI or PI in Netweaver

    Portal is Netweaver portal , using pure JAVA in SAP way.

    However, since SAP is a private company, not much open support through open groups but build based on good design approach and technplogies, it end up same an a BMW getting repaired in LOCAL mechanic workshop.

    So if you have good intension, good inspiration and ready to take the RISK , welcome to Netweaver world.

    I firmly believe as SAP get more and more open , SAP Netweaver technologies especually JAVA/J2EE side stand one to one with other major vendor in US.

    However in Europe SAP has a stong stands due to the FACT that SAP could able to push their knowledge through direct involvment is all phase of the project.

    Thanks
