What is the market for SAP consultants compared to experienced J2EE developers?

I heard SAP pay scales are very high compared to J2EE, which has more supply for the number of positions available...

yup! Enterprise software consultants tend to make more money than developers..no doubt about it. They understand the business and can recommend solutions. I think thats normally the case..definitely in mine (i2)! I was in development too but have moved into consulting. but can't get rid of the j2ee bug so easily

It's not the technical stuff SAP consultant are paid for . They are paid for multiple years of functional experience .

J2EE is a crowded arena any one can learn it in couple of years and become a j2ee developer .

Any one can learn J2EE; but to execute it well and with reasonable results with respect to scalable systems needs brains and special knack.

J2EE folks also garner functional experience. Their functional expertise depends on the industry in which the J2EE application is based on.

I feel it is the supply, demand and the complexity of the ghost that drives the SAP consultant payscale higher; in my opinion.
