Do you want to testdrive SAP’s new Eclipse-based ABAP IDE, the ABAP Development Tools for SAP NetWeaver?

Simply go to the update site of the SAP Development Tools for Eclipse and follow the installation instructions. This version of ADT requires at least an AS ABAP of SAP NetWeaver 7.31/7.03 SP04 (for details please refer to this blog post). Thus, you either already installed an approriate sytem or you may use the different trial editions of SAP NetWeaver Application Server ABAP provided virtual appliance. Please ensure to configure the port of the HTTP service correctly (see ICM documentation), otherwise some features of ADT might not work correctly (like calling the ABAP keyword documentation).

For a jump start with ADT after installing it successfully I recommend to read the ADT Quick Launch Guide or watch the ADT video tutorial. There is also an FAQ document available about ADT which might be of interest.

        I think you have to download 2 last items.

        • SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP 7.03 SP04 64-bit Trial, 3.912 GB (3.912.392.119 bytes)
        • ABAP Development Tools for SAP NetWeaver Trial (IDE), 23.839 MB (23.839.048 bytes)

        I’m not sure it will work on win-32 bit but I tested it in windows 7 64 bit.

        Just to clarify this: The trial version of ADT runs fine on Win32 (JRE32). So if you have access to an AS ABAP 7.03 SP04 system you can go ahead. If you also need an appropriate trial version of the AS ABAP backend, Andreas is right (currently Win64 only).

        Best regards,

          Hi Markus,

          the error message states org.eclipse.emf.validation is missing, which is the forth point in the list of required features in the installation guide. I recommend to check once more if all requirements are really fulfilled. I faced myself sometimes the situation, that Eclipse didn’t install all features I have selected for installation.

          Regards, Felix

              Good morning Markus,

              SAP Logon offers 3 ways to configure systems you want to work with.

              1) specify the location of the saplogon.ini file in the SAP Logon settings (default: %APPDATA%\SAP\Common)

              2) specify the location of the saplogon.ini file in the environment variable  SAPLOGON_INI_FILE (default: not set)

              3) get a structured list of systems through a XML-configuration file, which internally points a saplogon.ini (default: not set)

              Option 3 is currently not supported by the ABAP Development Tools 1.0

              How is the location of the saplogon.ini specified on your system?

              Did you  change the default value?

              Regards, Felix

    Hi Christopher,

    would it be safe to run the ADT-Trial against a system used as a regular development system or is there a chance that ADT breaks something on the backend (like the TA/RDIR & friends).

          Hi Mahmoud,

          Missing requirement: ABAP Communication Framework 2.0.2 (com.sap.adt.fwk.ci.feature.group 2.0.2) requires ‘org.eclipse.emf.workspace.feature.group [1.5.0,2.0.0)’ but it could not be found

          It seems to me that at least required EMF features have not been installed, yet. All required features and how they can be istalled is mentioned in the installation guide (chapter 3.1).

      Dear Kumud,

      when you have a running NetWeaver 7.03 SP 4 you should be able to use the user BCUSER and the Developer Key which is provided in the documentation.

      Best regards

      Gregor

        Hi Gregor,

        Thanks for the reply. The issue was that the developer key I was using was incorrect. After putting the right developer key, it worked.

        Regards,

        Kumud

        Hi Wolf,

        I have put the developer key provided in the document into the DEVACCESS table. when I try to create a ABAP class in SABAPDEMOS pacakge. I got the following error message:

        “No license to edit object R3TR CLAS CX_EXCEPTION_DEMO”

        Could you please give me some tips about the error? thanks!

            Hi Wolf,

            thanks you for your quick reply. Yes, i tried to create a class named Z_TEST in $TMP message. but i got new error message: “No change recording enabled for package $TMP”

            1. Michael Schneider

              Hi Jack,

              The message “No change recording enabled for package $TMP” should be a information message (i.e.,you should be able to continue the creation by pressing the button Finish in the wizard).

              The message “No license to edit object R3TR CLAS CX_EXCEPTION_DEMO” appears, because you tried to create a class in SAP namespace and in a package of SAP.

              Michael

            Dear wolf,

            I make some progress. If i create a package name “ZJACK”, then I can create ABAP class into the “ZJACK” package.

    No trial version for those of us who have already migrated to Linux? 😥

    That’s sad, since  ℹ SUSE Linux Enterprise Server is the best platform for SAP (in someone’s humble opinion).

        Sorry about my unspecific comment. It was the Netweaver Application Server trial I was looking for.

        I noticed that the ADT now also supports Linux, which is why I got interested in looking at it again. A round of applause for the Linux support in ADT 😘

    How to upgrade Release and component version

    Please help.

      I’d recommend to download the 7.03 SP04 trial version which is available on the same page (compatible with ADT/AiE) or try the virtual appliances. Upgrading the trial version would be much more effort and requires a real license for accessing the required software packages.

      Best regards,

    Hi,

    it’s always the same issue with sap. SAP is not able to provide a “how to do” paper that answers every question!

    The Link “update site of the SAP Development Tools for Eclipse”  provides an installation dokumentation and the first point is

    -> Get an Eclipse Kepler installation. <-

    And yep it’s not a link! The question is now “Where to get the Eclipse Kepler installation?”

    Ohhh yes SAP I know, the answer is somewhere in the paper and link jungle! I’m only a poor sap admin. I don’t want to read everything in the sap world to get the progress I want.

    Best regards (of a deeply depressed)

        Hi,

        For creating instances in SAP Cloud Appliance Library, Are we going to get charged by the cloud provider?

        As mentioned in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eSH7NCvgQok

        For connecting to the cloud instances which is the 3rd and last stage, we first have to create the instances and complete till the 2nd stage.
