What is the road map to start XI
Me previously worked on Datawarehousing.Datastage(ETL tool).Now I shifted to XI 4months back.In my company they given a warm up training on XI and some basic scenarios.Now they directly kept me at one interface(project).Ok Iam doing good there.
But what my question is ,what is the actual road map to start the XI like from SLD or Adapter or from Mapping what is the step-by-step learning and what are the essential things I have to know as a SAP XI consultant. And am I want to learn SAP functional to stay at SAP for long run.
So what are the things I have to learn and what are the essentials to be need to stay in SAP XI space for long run?

first of all XI is just a technology
(like webdynpro etc)
it may be gone in a few years - just like that
it's not a funtional module - which are the same
since the beggning (logistic modules, financial etc)
if you want to learn the XI you can do every weblog
(for training) just to know what are the possibilities
of the XI, you should also learn the basis of java
(DOM, adapter modules) and ABAP (to use the XI with r/3-
proxies, rfc) I'd say that also common integration
knowledge is a "good to know" (idocs, ALE)
