    Hi Marco,

    thanks for pointing to the new NetWeaver 7.1 CE download. The new features you list sound great and I can wait to try them out.

    Best regards,

    Great news!

    But I have a question — is it possible to install the WebAS from this package on existing database (MS SQL in my case) rather then MaxDB?


      1. Valery Silaev

        It’s clear that this limitation enforced by trial nature of preview. But anyway for me (and I guess not only for me) it’s a bit inconvinient — DB definitely adds several hundred megs to download size.

        Could you share some screenshots that outlines new features of IDE and run-time?
