    Hi Amit,

    maybe you should start to check out :

    http://java.sun.com

    and then look for some books on:

    http://java.oreilly.com and take it from there.

    Best Regards,

    Frank

    Another good starting point is herewww.sdn.sap.com/irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/com.sapportals.km.docs/documents/a1-8-4/java%20for%20abap%20programmers.pdf">here>, it's good regardless of how long you've been doing ABAP

    There is also a website called http://www.visualbuilder.com">VisualBuilder with some nice tutorials and information.

    Also being doing a search here in SDN Content for Java for ABAP you'll find a lot of resources as well.

    It is great if you can get yourself familiar with java syntax, as is the case with any new langauage. However, the worst thing you can do is just code java in a top down approach. If you are not familiarizing yourself with OO concepts and best practices, then you are going to miss two important benefits that you will get from using OO programming - Reusability and flexibility in the frameworks that you develop (leveraging design patterns).

    These benefits will also be directly obtainable when you use ABAP objects.

    I am working in the opposite direction at the moment. I have some java experience, and I am starting to learn ABAP. I have used ABAP objects in my first project, and it was actually much better than I thought it would to be.

    Java and OO programming will be an ongoing learning experience. You will not be an expert for quite some time. I do not consider myself to be an expert by any means, and I've be studying OO and java for a few years.

    There is a fantastic book that explains OO concepts clearly, in much easier terms than the Gof "Design Patterns" book:

    Java Design: Objects, UML, and Process by Kirk Knoernschild

    You can read a few chapters at www.kirkk.com. (Use the JOUP link).

    Hope this helps you.
