Enabling ABAP in Eclipse

Since the announcement of availability of ABAP Eclipse to enable developers to use Eclipse environment for development, i was quite excited to install and have a look at this new tool. But installing and making it to function took me through lot of hurdles, though the SAP documentation provides the details but its not in detail and the steps are not that clear.

I am pretty sure others in the community will have the same kind of difficulties unless they have used eclipse earlier and so on.. This blog helps ABAP developers to get through the installation part.

Requirements:

Operating System Windows XP, Vista, 7 (32- or 64-Bit)

Java Runtime JRE 1.6, 32-Bit

MS VC Runtime 10, 32-Bit

SAP GUI for Windows 7.20 Patch Level 9 or higher

Browser Internet Explorer 7.0 or higher / Firefox 4.0 or higher

Eclipse Platform Eclipse 3.6 or 3.7

1) Download Eclipse software from the below website (Supported versions 3.6.0 to 4.0.0 ) Versions above 4.0 are not supported with ABAP editor, make sure the right version is downloaded.

http://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/downloads/eclipse3x.html

2) Downloaded file is a zip file, and unzip the file in the location you want to and the Eclipse is ready to be executed using .exe file.

3) JRE (Java Runtime Environment) is mandatory to run the eclipse and thus make sure the JRE with version above 1.6, 32 bit (Latest version also does)

4) Download the other enhancements required to support ABAP editor installation from the links mentioned below

EMF-Eclipse Modelling Framework Core Runtime

      Thanks for the nice detailed post.

      Please could you throw some light on the benifits of using this editor.

      Thanks for the nice post. Can you also throw some light on the following:

      - Do we have this feature in Netweaver Developer Studio and from which version

      - What is the transport procedure if we develop ABAP programs through Eclipse based IDE

      - Does SAP recommend to use this IDE for ABAP development.

      Sundeep,

      Please find my comments in line with your questions.

      - Do we have this feature in Netweaver Developer Studio and from which version

      - As per my understanding ABAP Eclipse is independent of NWDS at the moment. ABAP Eclipse is on the higher version of eclipse tool where as NWDS is still based on the older version.

      - What is the transport procedure if we develop ABAP programs through Eclipse based IDE

      - This is same as the normal transportation methodology. No change in the transportation process.

      - Does SAP recommend to use this IDE for ABAP development.

      - Yes, SAP's roadmap is to have the eclipse as the ABAP development tool and not the SAP GUI. Also, going forward you may not be able to develop some objects using SE80. This shows that we will be forced to use Eclipse environment for development.

      Hope this helps.

      Cheers,

      Can we develop Web Dynpro ABAP applications using this tool?

      Also can you please provide the link where SAP has the future road map of this tool.

      Yes, you can. I don't have the roadmap, but this is what you can expect to happen, for example, HANA development is eclipse based and not the SAP GUI Based. And similarly newer versions of ECC is going to reside on HANA and so you can expect to see that it becomes mandate to use Eclipse for the ABAP Development. Days have changed alot for ABAP developers in recent years.

      I'm in the middle of installing the NW7.03 SP4 trial so as to investigate ABAP in Eclipse; However, your experience raises some questions that I hope someone (anyone ?) can answer.

      1) Does the JRE really have to be 32bit ?  Even though I already have a perfectly functional 64bit 1.6 JRE instaleld for SAP purposes (as well as a 64bit JRE 1.7 for other uses)

      2) The implication is that if a developer is already using Eclipse 4.x for other purposes, they will also need to install an obsolete version (Eclipse 3.7).

      My next questions are more directed at the developers of ABAP in Eclipse (hopefully, they're watching).

      1) Any idea what impact the EMF and Mylyn components have on other packages, especially the all-in-one packages (like the Eclipse IDE for xxx Developers packages listed on the Eclipse 3.7 (Indigo) downloads page) ?

      2) Are there any plans to combine the EMF and Mylyn packages into an all-in-one Eclipse IDE for ABAP Developers package ?

      thanks

      Dear Martin,

      unfortunately there is no all-in-one AiE Distribution. But I've created the Wiki Page: AiE easy installation where you can download a so called P2F file that will allow you to install all required components without manually searching them.

      Best regards

      Thanks for that link, Gregor,

      At the moment the AiE easy installation page suggests that we can use Eclipse 4.2, whereas the OP (OB ?) says we have to use Eclipse 3.x.  I will find out for myself (if time and the gods of remote installation via mobile phone internet connectivity allow) tonight, and report back 🙂

      Hi Martin,

      you where right. The installation in Eclipse 4.2 fails in the moment with that error:

      Cannot complete the install because one or more required items could not be found.

        Software being installed: ABAP Development Tools 1.0.3 (com.sap.adt.core.feature.group 1.0.3)

        Missing requirement: ABAP Development Tools Connectivity 1.0.2 (com.sap.adt.connectivity.feature.group 1.0.2) requires 'org.eclipse.platform.feature.group [3.6.0,4.0.0)' but it could not be found

      Hi Gregor & Martin,

      I tried to install on the latest version and it failed and when i repeated the steps in 3.6 to 4.0 versions of eclipse it works. The SAP's documentation also refers to the same.

      I am just running multiple versions of eclipse to keep the other eclipse software independent of ABAP eclipse, thus i need not to worry about what i am installing for the ABAP eclipse.

      Cheers,

      Hi,

      Good blog. Has all the details required for installation. Have these queries:

      1. While this allows to connect and work on a underlying R/3 system, does it need any basic pre-requisite for Netweaver AS ABAP stack ? One of the posts did mention that it has to be atleast an AS ABAP with SAP Kernel 7.20 and SAP BASIS 7.31 with support package stack 04.

      2. Does this installation affect any other Eclipse installations/environment already available in our TP/Desktop ?

      Regards,

      Suma

      Author's profile photo Gregor Wolf
      Gregor Wolf

      Dear Suma,

      1. Yes, as you've correctly mentioned it needs at least SAP NetWeaver ABAP 7.03 SP4 or 7.31 SP4. Only this releases provide the needed back-end services needed for AiE.

      2. You can install Eclipse in a separate folder and use that for ABAP in Eclipse. Then it would not harm your other Eclipse installations.

      Best regards

      Hi all,

      interesting blog, unfortunately my installation seems to be OK, but I don't see anyone of my sap connections from sap logon pad.

      In other terms: in sap logon pag I've a lot of connections set to SSO, no one of them are shown in ADT.

      Any suggestions?

      Your eclipse version does not seem to be right.. it should be one of the 3.6.X to 4.0. I am using 3.7.2 and it is working fine. Please download this version(link is mentioned in the blog) and repeat the steps as indicated in the blog. This could fix your issue.

      Hi Prasanna,

      unfortunately no good news: I've installed Indigo 3.7.2 but same result: popup is still empty, no systems selected from my saplogon pad.

      I've noticed 1 difference during installation from installation guide: in installation guide another component is mentioned with ADT, that is: "Semantic file system". When I've installed ADT components I've just seen:

      ABAP Development tools - Core

      ABAP Development tools - communication

      ABAP Development tools - Connection

      JCo  <<

      while in the guide is mentioned

      ABAP Development tools - Core

      ABAP Development tools - communication

      ABAP Development tools - Connection

      Semantic File system  <<

      Semantic libraries are in plugin folder, can it have any meaning??

      Many thanks

      That is only the BW component but when this one is 7.00 your ABA and BASIS release is also 7.00. So you have find a 7.03 system or use the trial version.

      there is not 32-Bit edition any more. I think it's time to upgrade to 64-Bit.

      Best regards

      Thanks wolf,

      I downloaded the ABAP eclipse files for "SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP 7.03 SP04 64-bit Trial, 3.912 GB (3.912.392.119 bytes" and when try to install it on Eclipse it is giving error No software sites found.  I did all the above steps for eclipse, except the ABAP files.

      Thanks

      Dear Mirza,

      what you've downloaded is the installation for a ABAP Application server that will support connecting from ABAP in Eclipse. If you have a 7.03 SP04 ABAP System accessible I would suggest you read through http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-29607 to learn how you install the Eclipse part.

      Best regards

      Is your backend based on a supported SAP NetWeaver relase (at least AS ABAP of SAP NetWeaver 7.31/7.03 SP04)?

      For mor information you can also check the FAQs:

      Good blog!!  Very helpful to people with no experience of Eclipse. 

      However, i am here to ask for some help. I completed all the steps but still cannot login to the required system using SSO. My login is perfectly fine with just the SAP logon pad. But with Eclipse it comes up with the error message

      Logon to system XXX failed (Name or password is incorrect (repeat logon) on XXX mshost YYY.YYY.com)

      Has anyone come across this issue?

      Thanks

      Very useful blog, with step by step instructions, apt for people who are new to Eclipse.

      However, when i try to Activate Secure network connection in the SAP logon pad and try to log in, i receive and error stating "Error in SCN". So, I'm unable to go further.

      Please guide me as to what has to be done.

      This sounds interesting. But I am not able to get it to work so far !

      * I have installed Eclipse . Version 3.8.2

      * I have installed the components till Mylyn Tasks - Focused Interface.

      At this point I am not how to get the ABAP files? I downloaded SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP 7.03 SP04 64-bit Trial, 3.912 GB (3.912.392.119 bytes) from http://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/index?rid=/webcontent/uuid/1024acfb-5b30-2e10-f2bd-ccce5d8692b1

      I am not sure what to do next. Eclipse can not find any components from the folder that I got from above link. Any pointers?

      Dear Anuj,

      you need to download the components for Eclipse either from the Service Marketplace (latest version) or via the link in the Document http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-29607 .

      Thanks Gregor. I suppose netweaver is what I am missing in my set up ! I have access to ECC 6.0 only.. Any way I can by pass that and use eclipse directly with ECC?

      Author's profile photo Gregor Wolf
      Gregor Wolf

      ECC 6.0 is also based on NetWeaver. But you can use ABAP in Eclipse only when your ECC System is upgraded to Enhancement Package 6 (EhP 6) which needs NetWeaver 7.0 EhP 3 as a foundation.

      Hi Anuj,

      I think you are facing one the two problems.

      1. You installed Eclipse but unable to install SAP ABAP add-on.

           - For this refer to OSS Note 1718399.

      2. You have installed SAP ABAP add-on but when you try to create an ABAP project  the next screen appears as blank.

           - For this you need to install Java Runtime Environment. Then on Windows, go to Start  and right click on "My Computer" and then select Properties.

             Now click on Advanced tab. Click on Environment Variables. Now add a new variable "JAVA_HOME" and value as path to your jre folder e.g. C:\Program Files\Java\jre6.  Save the variable value.

             Now scroll down and search for environment variable "PATH" and append "%JAVA_HOME%\bin

            

      Now restart Eclipse and try to create project.

      This should solve your issue.

      Regards,

      Anuj

      Thanks Anuj. There are many items on the list which I can not do on my own and I cant ask Basis to do it for me as no one is really interested in this ! Is there any presentation/video which shows how eclipse looks and functions which I can check out?

      Dear Anuj,

      if you have a PC with at least 4 GB of RAM you can install your own ABAP System which you can get from http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-29607 and you're ready to go.

      Best regards

      Dear All,

      I have successfully installed JRE, Eclipse and all the mentioned plug-ins. Now I want to create my first abap project, but no SAP system appears in the System Connection popup.

      I have a SAPlogon 7.30 installed, containing several hundreds of working connections so SAP systems. But none of these connections appear in this box. Did I forget a step?

      regards,

      Hi All,

      I found the solution using this link

      http://www.lazysystemadmin.com/2009/12/sap-logon-ini-file-installation-on.html

      I entered the SAPLOGON_INI_FILE environment variable as describe above and it work. Hurray 🙂

      Note that I didn't need to execute step 11 (SNC connection) at all. I can just connect to the system (WAS731) and it works. Hope our customers will be upgrading to 731 systems as soon as possible.

      Dear everybody,

      I recommend SAP NetWeaver ABAP Trial, to first steps. It's only for 90 days, but I think it is the most complex framework system.

      Something new that is not included in this content.  For installing the most recent ABAP, you need to select the EMF Edit Data Binding from the EMF core.

      Hi All,

      I am able to setup the ABAP on Eclipse in my HANA studio but when i am trying to create a new project in the ABAP perspective i get an error message : SNC Library not found; environment variable "SNC_LIB_64" not defined, fallback location does not exist: "C:\Program Files\SAP\FrontEnd\SecureLogin\lib\secgss.dll" )

      Could you please help me to know what is missing. I tried in both ways by setting the SNC mode to use SSO and without SSO. My system is SAP_BASIS 740 with SP03.

      Thanks

      Hi Ashish,

      I believe on Windows you are missing some environment variables. In order to set the same follow below steps.

      ou have installed SAP ABAP add-on but when you try to create an ABAP project  the next screen appears as blank.

           - For Java environment variable, install Java Runtime Environment. Then on Windows, go to Start  and right click on "My Computer" and then select Properties.

             Now click on Advanced tab. Click on Environment Variables. Now add a new variable "JAVA_HOME" and value as path to your jre folder e.g. C:\Program Files\Java\jre6.  Save the variable value.

             Now scroll down and search for environment variable "PATH" and append "%JAVA_HOME%\bin

            

      Now restart Eclipse and try to create project.

      For SAP environment variable follow the same steps but instead of JAVA_HOME create SAP variable with path pointing to SAP logon pad ".ini" file.

      Regards,

      Anuj

      Hi Anuj,

      Thanks for your reply. I already had those environment variables setup properly. But for me it worked when i completely unchecked the SNC checkbox on the SAPGUI. I think i confused it with using SSO. Thanks again.

      Hi,

      I've installed Eclipse Juno ("IDE for Java EE Developers"), all prerequests from http://wiki.scn.sap.com/wiki/display/ABAP/AiE+easy+installation and "ABAP Core Development Tools 2.7.6" from http://service.sap.com/swdc . The instalation was ok and I can see the installed components on the list in Eclipse but my problem is, there is no ABAP Perspektive, no ABAP Project type, no ABAP at Welcome Page etc. - no sign of ABAP beside the list of installed components. I've restarted Eclipse and PC many times and searched for errors but without succes.

      Is there an additional step needed to activate ABAP in Eclipse?

      regards,

      Hello,

      i installed Eclipse, works fine so far. I can edit all kind of ABAP-Code, the only really annoying problem is:

      - every time i hit F8 to test the Program i have to reenter username and password in the appearing SAP-Interface (see attached picture)Neues Bild.jpg

      It also appears a message --> "The issuer of the SSO ticket could not be verified"


      Does anyone have had the same problem?

      Hi Michael,

      thanks for your answer, i´ve already seen it.

      Using KeePass can only be a workaround.

      There must be a better solution i think.

      so perhaps anybody has a better solution.

      It is a lot easier to use the download site in Eclipse itself. There you got everything in one place and you should not run into an error.

      Download the free version of the ABAP Development Tools via the Updatesite: https://tools.hana.ondemand.com/#abap

      See this document for further instruction if needed.
