Hi Gayatri,

you can struck towards Netweaver where you can get the advantage of java along with the knowledge of abap. If you wants to be in sap totally you can start with sap abap. But as a fresher you will find it difficult in getting a job in sap, so i will suggest you to take Netweaver . Please read some documents

given below for better understandings.

Hi Gayatri,

It is good to hear you are interested on SAP.

But, I will not suggest you SAP after 4 years of experience in JAVA. If you are fully interested on SAP then it is OK, otherwise

Every technology is same to work, might be packages are different. You already having 4+ exp , so you are almost a senior developer and you are well knowledge person in your technology, in this time why you are looking a job where you have to work as a FRESHER.

Choose the correct path before you step in.

For a JAVA developer, SAP ABAP is very flexible to code.

Regards,

MK.

I agree with Murali ,

Java is a very well established technology .

After completing Senior Level experience with Java and then again to start with a new technology from base I think is not that good idea. Who knows after achieving sound experience in SAP also you reach the same point and again you think for a change.

So as a summary you stuck with Java itself .

And also there are several Java related technologies in SAP as well like Java Webdynpro and other ....

So you can try for the same in parallel to quench your curiosity for SAP.

Hi Gayatri,

If you want to be in SAP, I suggest SAP PI ( process integration) for you.There is lot of demand in the

market who have Java knowledge with SAP PI 7.0 ( earlier it is called as SAP XI version 3.0).

If you want more details contact some PI or XI professional's and take there opinion.

Regards,

Vijay Kumar.G
