How to get started with SAP from J2EE background?

Hi All,

This is in fact seeking some advice from my experienced friends over there.

I have been working in the area of Java/J2EE platform for Intranet and Internet based Enterprise apps. Been around for almost 5 years.

My major expertises are : OOA/D & Development Framework, JSP/Servlet (Struts fw), EJB, OR Mapping tools and JDBC (though my main strenght is implemnting the business process in the middleware). I have experience of designing/architecting of 3 concrete J2EE projects which are currently running at customer's site.

Now I feel that, I need to move to something new to add some "glamour" to my CV and future career. I was just reading around the market of SAP and others. And I thought moving to SAP would be a good idea.

I just wanted to ask what should be my starting point ? What should be the steps to move to SAP?From my experience I know, its really hard to get inside of a technology w/o working on at least one real time project. But I have to start at some point. I would just like to receive some input from all of you.

    You're at the right place.

    You can just work into our J2EE environment and from there into the details of the SAP platform. For A start I recommend to donwload our Java environament and get along with the tutorials.

    • Additionally to Stefans answer I'd like to explain what SAP systems do. Usually people speaking about SAP programs don't mean the technology, but the applications SAP makes a living of. These are ERP systems (everything that happens in business like financial accounting, supply management etc.).

      To access those you need to know about BApi's. Everything you ever did before with Java you can do as known before.
