Portal Developer - Scenario

Hello All,

I'm a newbie in SAP portal development world. Actively watching SDN forum to see what oppurtunity a java programmer can have in the SAP portal development. I'm very happy to see SDN forum being very active. I have strong skills in enterprise java(J2EE) and I'm currently working as SUN portal developer. I'm curious to find more information about SAP portal development using java. Since many of you using this forum are sharing realtime experience in SAP java portal development, I thought just ask a question to get your advise. I have also installed EP trail version and playing with it, haven't got too far yet.

From realworld situation can you guys give me couple of scenerio of what type of task would be given to a SAP java portal developer. Since I got no experience in SAP I really don't know how to match with my current skills and expertise.

Thanks in advance.

    I've been EP developer for almost two years now, with a "pure" J2EE background before.

    The main tasks I'm confroted with can be split up in three categories:

    - Developing complete applications on EP, with or without using SAP R/3 as backend (about 25%)

    - Developing small tools (simple iViews, consisting of about one to three components) (about 40%)

    - Changing/Extending the EP standard functionality (lot of decompiling, understanding code, enhancing it etc) (about 35%)

    Hope it helps
