A recent Gartner study claimed that the number of J2EE/Java jobs in the enterprise segment could rise as much as 13% more than the normal growth between 2007 and 2009 . This is primarily due to the fact that the big 2 ERP vendors SAP and Oracle will use J2EE for their Applications customization moving from the legacy ABAP (in case of SAP) and Forms/Reports (in case of Oracle). Oracle strongly believes in J2EE in its next app release in 2008, as it will have no support for the previous Forms/Reports and will be completely based on J2EE. The german SAP also encouraged its customers to move from the legacy ABAP to the recent SAP Netweavers Java app server.
