Both paths are valid. The bulk of SAP uses ABAP so there is more demand (more available positions) but there is also a huge supply of ABAP programmers. Java is used less frequently (mostly for portal and HR apps, but also other places). Since Java is used less frequently, there are fewer available positions, but there are far fewer JAVA developers knowledgeable in JAVA.

From what I can tell, though, there is not currently a certification for JAVA. You can find more information about the training available for ABAP and JAVA through SAP's training sites. SAP provides some excellent training on how to find the correct certification course and the classes associated with the certification at https://educops.sap.com/demohub/demo/taprep/launch.htm. At that link you'll find

If you're in Asia Pacific, you'll need to take your training from one of the Authorized Training Partners in order to sit for the exam unless you have 2 full implementations and an authorized implementation partner to sponsor you.

Hope this helps!
