SAP NetWeaver Administration Gadgets – Getting Started

Special thanks to all the audience of SDN Demo Jam Session at SAP TechEd, Las Vegas for cheering me up during my demo “SAP NetWeaver Administration Gadgets” in SDN Demo Jam Session at SAP TechEd, Las Vegas (Demo Jam Video ). Its all because of you that my demo ended up as one of the top three winners (And the winners are …).  As shown in the demo jam we will now explore how to use widgets for performing common SAP NetWeaver system administration tasks such as system status monitoring, log viewing, Java Application Server start/stop, browsing DTR, and system availability history analysis etc.  Within next few days I will release all the widgets shown in the demo through SDN. I will also write series of weblogs to assist you in configuring these tools.  So lets get started by installing the Yahoo! Widget Engine.

System Requirements
