      thanks for the note. The link to the Help will be available on RTC of SAP NetWeaver 7.5. I’ve updated the page accordingly.

    Hello Olga!

     

    Thank you for this document.Do you have any information about Web Dynpro Java? Will NetWeaver 7.5 support it?

        Hello, in that doc said:

        SAP NetWeaver 7.5 — planned for the delivery of the on-premise edition of SAP S/4HANA — is designed to meet these needs and lay the groundwork for supporting the next stage of innovation.

         

        It will be the compatible successor of SAP NetWeaver 7.4, and will provide the onpremise foundation for SAP Business Suite (as of enhancement package 8 for SAP ERP) and for the on-premise edition of SAP S/4HANA.

         

        I don’t understand the part of EHP 8; an example: a customer who uses SAP EHP 6.04, if he upgrades to EHP 8, a new netweaver will be part of that upgrade?

            We have our ECC system on EHP7, NW 7.4. Can we migrate to Suite on HANA by keeping the same EHP7 and only changing the Netweaver to 7.5 during DMO migration. Will NW 7.5 require EHP level to be elevated also?

                Hi Karl

                We are in the same position as  Mohsin. ECC system on EHP7, NW 7.4 on Hana.

                In the PAM it looks af if we can go directly to S/4 Hana 1610, but in this document it seems that NW 7.5 is a prerequisite for just going to Suite on Hana.
                https://websmp109.sap-ag.de/~sapidp/012002523100011787552015E.pdf

                1.3.1 Scenario 1 – System Conversion: SAP Business Suite Customer who wants to move to SAP S/4HANA

                • Update to SAP NetWeaver Application Server ABAP 7.5
                • Migrating the database to SAP HANA (in case, the SAP Business Suite system is not yet on SAP HANA).
                • Installation of SAP S/4HANA, on-premise edition 
                • Installation of SAP Fiori for SAP S/4HANA, on-premise edition
                • Migration of data from the old data structures to the new simplified data structures

                Do we need to upgrade to NW 7.5 before installing s/4 Hana or can we do it in one go.

                And can we wait a few months after “Installation of SAP S/4HANA” with the actual migration of data from old structures to new.

                Thanks Niels

      Hi Sergey,

       

      please look in SAP Software Download Center under “Installations and upgrade” and find “SAP NetWeaver” in the “A-Z alphabetical list”. Clicking on it will display all available for download SAP NetWeaver releases with SAP NetWeaver 7.5 as the last entry at the bottom.

    Hi Olga ,

     

    Thanks for you post on SAP NetWeaver 7.5. It  is available now as of 20th Oct 2015.

     

    Would you please explain the following ?

    SAP NetWeaver 7.5 is on-premise foundation for SAP Business Suite (as of Enhancement Package 8 for SAP ERP) and for the on-premise edition of SAP S/4HANA ” How about EHP 7 on NW7.5 ?

     

    As EHP8 is not available yet , we are planning to upgrade EHP6 (on NW 7.0 EHP3) to EHP7 on NW7.50, is not it possible ?

     

    Thanks ,

    Al Mamun

      I don’t think so. In your case, if you want NW 7.5 you will have to wait for EHP8. It doesn’t make much sense for SAP to do the downward compatibility testing, just like EHP6 isn’t available with NW 74. EHP8 is to be released in Q1/2016.

    Hi Samuli,

     

    I want to create a Socket IO Client Lib that also supports Client Websockets.

    My current status is that the only way before 7.5 is XHR Polling.

    So I want to know if NW 7.5 contains Websocket Client ABAB classes, for example CL_APC_WS_CLIENT class and examples that explain how a connection needs to configured via SM59 (Configuration of RFC – Connections) .

    Or do I have to wait for EHP8 Q1/2016 to get this, to set it up on our EHP7 Testsystem to browse the new introduced classes.

     

    Thanks in advance for response.

    I wonder what will happen to the ABAP stack in the planned S/4HANA environment?


    As far as I read from various sources in the web, I have the following picture:

    • The applications that are planned to replace SD, MM, FI etc. will not be implemented in ABAP but as HANA native applications (i.e. SAPUI5 for the UI, .xsjs for server-side logic).
    • It will be possible to use an ABAP stack, but the HANA basis services will not need it. ABAP is a “may”, not a “must”, an environment offered among others, like e.g. Java.


    Is this correct?


    What will be the future of ABAP, NGAP etc. in the light of these plans?

      Hi Rüdiger,

      sorry, this is not true. The digital core of SAP S/4HANA (finance, logistics etc) is implemented in ABAP 7.5 based on Core Data Services and SAP UI5. In addition we add capabilities from products derived from SuccessFactors, Ariba etc which are written in Java.

        Hello Olga,

         

        Thank you, but can you confirm which mode it is uses by default and in which mode it opens iviews in the main portal page ?

         

        Previous versions also declared support for IE9/10/11, yet were using non standard mode to render those…

         

        Regards.

        Denis

          Hi Denis!

          The Portal UI is supporting standards mode with its 2 leading framework pages (Fiori Framework page and Ajax Framework page). For the Portal administration screen the default mode is still quirks (AFP quirks mode). When this is fixed, we will here also move to standards as default.

    Hello We are using SAP PI (EHP 1 for SAP NetWeaver 7.1) dual stack system. I just realize that SAP NetWeaver 7.5 is given two Installation Options : 1- SAP Application Sever ABAP for Process Integration 2- SAP Application Sever JAVA for Process Integration.

     

    Can anybody Pls. tell me the difference between above two? What would be suitable for us to install. Regards Saqib M. Ayub Khan

        … and looking at the latest SAP Product Road Map for SAP Gateway it is apparent that oData v4 is not supported in NetWeaver 7.50 SP03 (= Today). I found SAP note 2335769 which introduces some oData v4 decoupling code. The SAP note is included in SP05 but looking at all notes in SP05, I think it is safe to say that oData v4 support isn’t included in SP05 either. Maybe some way to go still…
