Thanks abdkabir. I have a friend that works with the Nigeria MOD; he said they use ABAP for their tactical and reconnaissance application.

Beside, I don't want to study other modules that will keep me in Europe. I want to combine ABAP with WB and probably with BA. Please, if anybody that has information relating to these SAP modules in correlation to Nigeria market, could you shed more light?

I remembered at Uni, our professor then said most of us would end up maintaining systems. Only few lucky ones would ever been engaged in developing application. Damm,  was he right. Most of the applications today are already been invented. We cannot reinvent the wheel.

We can help to make legacy systems more robust and responsive by writing more intelligent API and changing their user interface. J2EE, .NET and PHP could be used as an application server.

Remember the most important core unit of any business is information. Information is transpose from data and data are stored into a database. Database is the life of any organisation, because this is where information is retracted.

Database could be useless if you cannot access it to produce intelligent information like:

1. How many men age 18-45 are in Nigeria
2. How many retired pensioners are in Nigeria
3. How many IT professionals are in Nairaland

These intelligent questions are not store in a database but we can produce such an intelligent information by querying the data contained in a data base.

Now, if you have a well defined database EIS. You can easily buy any of the application servers like J2EE or .NET and configure it to your EIS and start writing intelligent application to solve your company goals.

Thanks. It appears d Job market favours Db related Jobs, "Systems maintainers" and Value Added Service to customized Modules. Of all these ,it seems the DB

related function are more sought after. It makes sense though, almost all businesses need some kind of DBMS.

As regards SAP applications and implementation in Naija, the following links might be helpful:



I would think many of the implementations in Naija are Intergration based (Netweaver) or specifics (ERP,CRM,SCM). Definately, Netweaver would be hot in Naija as many of the multinationals would want to be at par with their divisions elsewhere.

This is something I was thinking last night before going to bed. I don't know if someone has said it before. Applications are inadequate without the supplement of data particularly from a hierarchal structure like database. 1

Is this statement valid?
Re: Java Programming For Dummies by JayBaby1(f): 11:10am On Apr 06, 2007
yeap - it is valid - u must be a dummy?

hi guyz,

Great contributions for you all , even though i dislike viewing ARTICLES or ebooks that has words like DUMMIES included.

I think it is high time nigerian software developer contribute a greatest part to software(JAVA) and also I WOULD BE NICE IF WE START working on Writing YORUBA/IGBO/HAUSA softwares(games&app.).

What do you think about that ,

Lets get to work and make AFRICA great and impactful.

Re: Java Programming For Dummies by Bossman(m): 7:14pm On Oct 31, 2008
No! You cannot learn it in one month. For you to be proficient in it it will take a while and a lot of practice. Obviously, how long it takes will vary from one individual to another, and it will also depend on how deep you want to get with it. But, for you to be able to do it professionally, it definitely will take a lot longer than a month.

There are several threads that take you from the beginning. I'd suggest you follow the appropriate threads, download the JDK, setup your environment, get a few books and start reading and doing the examples. You can even try to modify the examples and see what you can come up with. If you have specific questions, then you can post back here.

I do not think anyone can hold someone's hand and tell them this is how you do it. How successful you are at it will depend on your problem solving skills and how hard you work at it.

Good luck!

Re: Java Programming For Dummies by judy4all: 5:15am On Nov 30, 2008
The decision of using Eclipse or Netbeans is solely your choice, i still believe that the best way to learn is using any test editor, and compiling and running thru the command line, I've used both Netbeans and eclipse, and eclipse is easier to configure, but they pretty much do the same thing, Eclipse also has more plug-ins available than Netbeans,

search box. You will get lot of java 5 books including certification guide.


you do not need to register.

Hope it helps.
Re: Java Programming For Dummies by webmonkey(m): 5:19pm On Dec 06, 2008
I have been reading most of these posts from a distant and must commend people like sbucareer. I have not seen him lately? I actually registered to be able to ask if someone knows anything about how to contact him.

His posts have positively encouraged and had made me to constantly come to this forum. Now, I cannot see his post anymore. Please can some help me to track him?

Please Seun, if you banned him can you encourage him to come back, please. I am not from Africa, which I assume most of the blogger of this forum are from. We read sbucareer blog in our company. His blog has helped me a lot. Please Seun, if you are unwilling to un-ban him can you forward me link or email to contact him.

this goes out to sbucareer and anyoneelse that can be of help.
there are so many programming languages out (java,html,xml,gml) e.t.c which ones are worth learning now?and what is javascript?thanks
Re: Java Programming For Dummies by mimohmi(m): 11:51am On Dec 12, 2008


Most people do often make common mistakes in differentiating
While the first does not require an compilation the other does. As such
Programming languages include Java, VB, C, C++, Fortran etc. While
Javascript,php,html,ehtml are all scripting languages. To start, I advice
you begin with Java and may generally add others later.

Re: Java Programming For Dummies by Zeta(m): 12:07am On Dec 13, 2008
@ mimoh mi

thanks for the heads up.

which java ebook would you recommend that can explain java language in the simplest of terms.
If you have one in mind please could you provide the link.Thanks again.

Re: Java Programming For Dummies by Taysay(m): 7:19am On Dec 14, 2009
@ Mimoh mi,
Long time, it's good to know u r still passionate about Java. I remember a few years ago 2006/2007 when as a corper serving in Osun, I came to c Mimoh mi @ his Apapa residence, mind you we only met on this forum, in fact via this very thread. This guy housed me, gave me a big picture of java, books lots of e-books and a hard copy, now things are looking up. And when I luk down memory lane I cant help but thank God for the likes of Mimoh , SBUCareer and the likes. Men its gud to have role models. in fact your role models dont have to be movie stars, celebrities , but that Man on the street who gives you the big picture of the vague and lil tot in ur head.

wishing you well in all your endeavours.
