You may have seen my previous blog on enterprise service consumption in Web Dynpro () . It features a step-by-step demo of SAP NetWeaver CE (https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/ce) and ES Workplace (https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/esworkplace) . Here is the shortcut for all those who are anxious to see this demo running on their own PC or laptop: the sample code for download.
Download and install the sneak preview of SAP NetWeaver CE 7.1 SP1 from the SDN download area (https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/downloads).
The “Java EE only” version is sufficient (it has already Web Dynpro in it).The full-blown version is fine as well. No guarantee for other versions.0.1.
Apply for free access to the ES Workplace system landscape on the related registration page (https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/esareg) on SDN.
System HU2 is used as SAP ERP 2005 for the demo. You need a user to access and execute the enterprise service in this system. At the moment, only customers, partners and employees of SAP are eligible to request an account. Those of you who are neither one of these: you will not be able to access and execute the enterprise service in system HU2, but I hope that this little sample still provides some useful insights for you.h5.
