Am gonna start learning SAP MI on few days now.
Wanted to know what are the pre-requisistes before learning this technology?
In other words, is it a must to know J2ME & XML very well?
Thanks and Warm Regards,
For MI applications , we have to do application component developments in both ABAP and Java.
In general MI Application = Java Component + ABAP component.
Java component means , which is running on the client device , we are accessing the MI applicatiion throught the Java component .
For running this Java components , we need proper runtimes.
Currently we have JSP Runtime and AWT Runtime .
JSP Runtime supports JSP applications and , AWT Runtime supports AWT applications.
If u have basic knowledge for application developments in JSP and AWT , then no problem with Java component development.(there is no need to know in detail about J2ME and XML).Basic knowledge of XML is necesssary for Client side application development.
Refer these helps for Client Side application development.
