After a little hiatus I am back. I have started learning something new from the wild choices we have available in the SAP Developer world. I will talk about it a little later. First a little background, as is clear from my signature line that I am portals consultant with some of the lids(skills – see this All those lids..) like implementation, development, KM, PDK etc. Having a background in Java development has definitely helped me in moving forward on portals path and its various integration scenarios. With SAP getting more and more stuff on Java (NW04 being the biggest) it has been getting better and better from my point of view. But lately on couple of projects doing integration with CRM my limited experience in BSP/PCUI development has been a limiting factor. I battled with the idea of learning BSP for sometime with arguments like how much a person should learn. Finally I have decided to learn BSP or in other words geek in me won over. So I have bought the Web Programming with the SAP Web Application Server which teaches the basic BSP programming. Still I can’t seem to stop thinking whether I am learning something which is going to be there for long or is it something which I will use on couple of projects in the near future and then move on with good ol’ Java.
