What is CAF?
CAF offers a wide variety of tools, services, processes, patterns and more valueable instruments for effective creation and maintenance of composite applications. Meanwhile the CAF is already successfully used by a whole string of applications like xPD, xIEP, xCQM, Mendocino to name some products. Moreover there are some partners and ISVs who work with CAF.
We were often asked if it’s possible to check CAF and it is: you can install the NetWeaver SP11 Sneak Preview. The Composite Application Framework with the components CAF Core and Guided Procedure is part of this Sneak Preview.
You can find this download package in the SDN Download Catalog typed as ‘SAP Evaluation Software’ and the name of the package is ‘Sneak Preview SAP NetWeaver 04 – Enterprise Portal’, release ‘EP 6.0 SP11’ by June 14, 2005.
With NetWeaver04 SP13, the Composite Application Framework was upgraded to CAF 2.0. CAF 2.0 is an Add-On that is based on NetWeaver04. The first support package of CAF 2.0 is named as SP13 – not as SP1 – because it is based on NW04, SP13.
CAF 7.0 is PART of NetWeaver04s and all delivery dates of NW04s are true for CAF 7.0, too.
