New Blog Series: ABAP Trial Version for Newbies
With the new build of the SAP NetWeaver 2004s ABAP Trial Version (SP11), we in SAP NetWeaver Product Management are eager to introduce, through a series of blogs, SAP ABAP technology to those with limited ABAP experience. While the Trial Version allows developers who are new to SAP to start learning ABAP it can also serve more experienced ABAP developers as a sandbox for more ambitous development experiments or to learn basic administrative tasks. In any case what you should have is a basic understanding of IT, and experience in at least one programming language. The blog series will start with easy – but essential – topics such as starting and stopping the SAP NW ABAP Application server from the management console. They’ll lead you to the development environment, where you can check out how easy and convenient it is to write applications in ABAP. Of course, the blogs cannot replace a solid training in ABAP technology, but it can serve as an appetizer before you delve deeper. With every blog, your knowledge of SAP technology will improve. And finally, you will have an overview of what’s going on in the ABAP application server. Feel free to make a suggestion for the topic you are interested in.

There are two forums where you can post your questions and ask for help in case of trouble.
Trials, Previews & Other Downloads for general discussions about the trial versions ( interesting projects you are doing with it, wishes for the future,…) Web AS Preview Installation for concrete problems with the installation.
It would be very helpful , if you could tell us the a road map to do a self learning in ABAP languague.
Another way to start learning ABAP on your own (if you don't want to take the official SAP training courses BC400, BC401,...) is by reading the book "ABAP Objects" by Horst Keller and doing the exercises.
(The second edition will be shipped in english soon.)
you can do in the trial
versions (both ABAP and Java),
both development and admin wise.
I am intrested in learning XI. Can we practice XI on these ABAP Trial version?
It's great that ABAP and ABAPers got such support.
I have a couple of questions:
1) What is new in this version compare to the SP08 version apart from SP09-11 and the kernel patch (I guess)?
2) Is the ABAP Book example package included such in case of version SP08?
3) Is there any ABAP 7.10 Sneak Preview planned? Or is it too early to talk about this?
Thanks in advance,
next to the SP11 corrections the major improvements are fixed the bugs which showed up in the SP08 version, like the (annoying) disp+work crash when trying to create web services.
The ABAP book examples are also contained in this version, and regarding further versions ... lets say that we don't plan to stop our trial version activities.
Thanks for the info.
I'm happy to read the plans about trial versions 🙂
my system has 512 RAM and 80 GB hard disk. can i download the trial version of ABAP.
Is there any other way to download abap with this conf?
Investing in another 512MB memory makes probaby more sense than wasting too much time with such a slow system.
Thanks for the info.
If I install everything required for this tutorial, will I run into any problems (software conflicts, not performance or memory etc...) with the SAP Netweaver Developer Studio and the SAP MMC I already have installed on my machine?
Can you please tell me how much free space is required to install this version of ABAP?
it is 22 GB hard disk space temporary during installation - 10 GB permanent.
Wondering if this would work on Vista dual core PC ?
Successfully installing the Trail Version on Windows Vista is not promised from SAP side, but our mighty community in SDN have already tested it and got it work:

the easiest way to get a Dual Stack running ist to use the ABAP/Java VMWare Edition. Have a look at my Blog SAP NetWeaver 7.0 - Java and ABAP Trial Version on Linux - VMware Edition - Tips & Tricks.
I am trying to install a license, my previous one runs out in three days. When I go to install it I get the error message 'The license key library has not been initialized yet.' ... when installing, I follow the exact procedure to install the entended license, but I always get the error. Is it because I have to wait before the old license expires?

Could you consider the possibility of adding the Adobe Designer to the future versions of the SAPGUI for ABAP Sneak Preview?
It would be useful for the Adobe forms.

Like I heard that NW is mainly used for webbased and ABAP is not desktop base like.
Can you please explain in detail.
Where as I am looking forward to learn ABAP towards webbased. Is it possible.
Thanks in advance.
