I certainly wish I would have read your columns and done some more research earlier; however, my current situation is that I am a relatively new grad (BSc. CISC), recently certified as a solutions consultant in mySAP Financials (R/3 Enterprise).
The news for you is mostly good: one of the most common ways to break into SAP is from the Java/web development side. I would focus less on trying to get into SAP and more on taking on the most challenging programming projects you can. If you become an all-star Java programmer, someone who can handle custom development in large corporate settings, you should be able to find your way into SAP sooner or later.
