Dear All,

I have 7 year of experience in java and J2ee related technology. Now in my new job I got a chance to work as SAP BASIS Admin.

I am confuse about the switch of career.

Frankly our job is for money and respect. I want to know is there more career growth in SAP BASIS than Java.
or its better to stay with Java and J2ee.

I appreciate the feed back.

thanks and regards
Syed Saifuddin

Well!

There are more than 6.5 MILLION java developers. I don't know how many SAP developers are out there, but for sure they are few, so they are highly valued in the market. They have the highest wage.
If you become a SAP certified, you'll swim in money. =)

Why there are so many Java Developers?

Because there are so many Java Applications out there!

I don't remember to have said that there are few jobs available for Java developers. I'm saying that SAP developers earn more.

Dear All,

My actual question is about SAP BASIS and Java Developer. SAP has many other functional module which pays big money. But tell me about SAP BASIS.

Also after 7 year of experience it is good move to start from start.

thanks and regards

Leandro ,
I think Jothi was trying to point out that pay depends on supply and demand rather than the sheer number of developers in a given language. For example, if I have 2 SAP jobs and 4 SAP developers vs 1000 Java jobs and 500 Java developers, the Java developer is likely to earn more. Now, granted I pulled these numbers out of a hat - I have no idea about the demand for SAP.

Syed,
A good way to find out is to search for "SAP BASIS" on job boards and see how many hits you get. You wouldn't be starting over if you switch. A lot of experience translates between languages.

Syed, 7 years of doing "what" in "what" industry and in "which" country?

Have you been studying for Java for 7 years? .. or been working on your personal Java web site for 7 years? ....JMX, JME, EJB, Custom development, application server development?

In software houses. Some project to redevelop from RAX language to Java.
Other system (HRMIS) with JSP , Servlet,
implementation of FIX protocol with JMS and EJB. Swing are also there
E-Commerce application with struts and hibernate
Travel Agency System with JSF and JPA and Session bean

Definitely I use design patterns in above project
JDBC and transaction management is also a part of project

never work on JMX
have working knowledge of Java ME (JME)
EJB very less exposure till J2EE 1.4.
but use extensively after JavaEE 5 launch.

After review of your response, the SAP opportunity looks like a very good thing for you. This would be a great addition to your background.
