In the 360° View on enterprise SOA: Provide and consume your own enterprise services – Model and define your own Enterprise Services (Part 5) we finished modeling our Enterprise Service. Now we need to prepare ourselves to implement the business functionality that the service will expose. In our case we will use the NetWeaver Developer Studio (NWDS) that comes with SAP NetWeaver CE 7.1 to do so.

This blog series describes how to reengineer “existing offerings into a set of well-governed, harmonized and technology-agnostic enterprise services“, to ultimately consume these. This installment helps you to get prepared for the actual implementation of the service and introduces the convenient feature of the NetWeaver Developer Studio Update Server.

The attached screencam shows

  • where to find the installation on your DVD
  • how to download and install SUNs JavaSE 5 SDK as prerequisite for the installation
  • the installation of the Developer Studio 7.1
  • and the update to service pack 4

Optionally you may  use JavaSE 6 as the underlying runtime for the Developer Studio 7.1 from Service Pack (SP) 3 on.

For the update we make use of the Update Server described in detail in the article “Distributing Development Tools Made Easier: The New Update Server for the SAP NetWeaver Developer Studio“. The actual URL you need to provide for the update is https://nwds.sap.com/swdc/downloads/updates/netweaver/nwds/ce/710/site.xml.

Note that you need to have a user account on http://service.sap.com/ in order to use the Update Server.

As I’m writing this the SP5 is already available and the SP6 is just around the corner, but the good thing is that you don’t have to care as the Update Server always shows you the latest available version. If you want to find out the SP plans visit https://service.sap.com/sp-stacks and click the SP Stack Schedule link at the very bottom of the page.

With the installation done we’re ready to embark on the actual implementation which will be covered in my next blog.

In a nutshell: From your own enterprise service -> Preparing your enterprise service implementation

After you learned how to use the Enterprise Services Builder in combination with SAP’s design and modeling methodology in the previous blog. You can now explain how to install and update NetWeaver Developer Studio and are now prepared to make your first steps toward the implementation of your Enterprise Services.

In the next part of the ‘360° view on enterprise SOA series’, I will show you how to use SAP NetWeaver Developer Studio to implement a Enterprise Service in Java based on the service WSDL that we’re going to download from ESR with integrated tool support.

    Hi Michael,

    I was looking for a x64 version of NWDS, but without success. Do you have any plans for a x64 NWDS? Almost all of our new systems have a x64 Vista and I think there are also other developers out there using a x64 OS. Thanks in advance for your reply.

    Best Regards,
    Marcel

      Hi Marcel,

      AFAIK it’s not officially supported, but the NWDS usually works fine on the 32bit subsystem of a 64bit OS. I look into this some time back and the reason for not supporting 64bit was that the underlying Eclipse didn’t support it yet.

      I will check this again with development.

      Best Regards,
      Michael

    Dear Michael,

    could you please check if it´s possible to adjust the Screencam a litte more to the left side as parts of it are cut off ?

    Thanks in advance.
