This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
I have been called for an interview at SAP Labs this weekend. They have said that the interview is going to be on Java/ J2EE and Oracle. Has anybody attended the interview there in these areas ? What are the questions that I can expect ?
I have close to 2 years of experience in Java/ J2EE technologies along with Oracle DB.
So, does that mean though the job-profile includes J2EE, they are basically looking for UI development guys who are well-versed with Swing/ AWT ??
I cann't say exactly about this one,so it's better to shut up my mouth on this question, but I am sure about one thing, Normally they force you to come up in SAP/APAB technologies.

You were partly right regarding the questions asked there. But it was nothing on Swing/ AWT. But, yes. They did ask a few questions on the technologies used in the projects I worked on, Normalization, SQL queries, etc.
But, basically they are looking for people who are ready to work on ABAP and come Java Background. When asked why Java was teh criterion, the interviewer said ABAP is similar to ABAP and it's hard to get pure ABAP guys outside (probably because it's their proprietary language).
So, how do you guys rate the scope if I get into ABAP development as I come from a Java background ? What can I expect / where would I stand in the market a few years down the line if I continue in this stream?
