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.
