Hi, Thanks for sharing this very useful blog with the SCN community. The link for Netweaver 7.5 help http://help.sap.com/nw75 is not working.
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.
Java 8 support sounds great, but what JEE profile? Will it be full JEE profile or web profile only?
See my comment a few weeks ago in http://scn.sap.com/thread/2028916, proably the longest thread in SCN.
And let us try to pimp Netweaver Java with CDI etc. anyway.
Thanks, its useful info.
Thanks Olga for sharing useful information about NW7.5, to me after looking at individual spaces, it looks like I am heading in right direction.
Thank you for this document.Do you have any information about Web Dynpro Java? Will NetWeaver 7.5 support it?
Yes. See pdf document linked in this thread

Hello, in that doc said:
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?
Yes, exactly. New EHPs require new underlying NetWeaver versions.
EHP4 -> NW 7.01
EHP5 -> 7.02
EHP6 -> 7.03
EHP7 -> 7.4
EHP8 will require 7.5
Thank you very much Karl Kessler
Excellent doc !!!
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?
EHP7 requires NetWeaver 7.4 while
EHP8 requires NetWeaver 7.5 no matter which database you use-
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.
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.
The Nw7.5 not available for download at SAP Software Download Center.
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.
It is the Nw7.5 available now!
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 ?
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.
Thanks for your reply, it is appreciated !
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.
ABAP channels is part of SAP_BASIS so no you don't have to wait for EHP8, NW 7.5 will do. See ABAP Channels (New and Changed) - What's New in SAP NetWeaver 7.5 (Release Notes) - SAP Library for what has been changed in ABAP channels for NW 7.5. I'm in no way an expert on ABAP channels so you will probably get more accurate and detailed information by creating a new discussion thread in the correct space.
ABAP channels (in SAP_BASIS) are available already since SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP 7.4 Support Package 5.For more infos please refer to the ABAP Development space and http://scn.sap.com/community/abap/connectivity/blog/2014/11/27/introduction-to-abap-channels.
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:
Is this correct?
What will be the future of ABAP, NGAP etc. in the light of these plans?
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.
thanks for your answer.
Good to know (for an ABAP developer) 🙂
Really Useful document
thnaks very nice...
Very helpful. Thanks for sharing.
Insightful queries. Please i would like to know when SAP NETWEAVER 7.5 handbooks will be available in the learning hub (Customer Edition).
does it fully supports E11 and standard mode or still on quirks IE5
yes, it supports IE11. Detailed release information about supported browser platforms is available in the Product Availability Matrix (PAM) on SAP Support Portal (https://support.sap.com/pam)
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...
SAP Portal does support IE standard mode, you just need to use Ajax Framework to run portal in standard mode. Check below blogs out.
Ajax Framework Page in IE standards mode
IE and Portal – Standards/Quirks Mode Evolution (or Love-Hate Relationships)
Nice, I hope this means the integration with Xi3.x and Bi4.x will now work properly.
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.
do you know, where to find more information about the OData v4 support of the GateWay ? Thank you
OData v4 is not yet supported. It is on our roadmap though and its planned to ship it.
thank you for the roadmap reference containing lot of useful information for the future, containing the plans of OData v4 support.
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
thanks for Information
Can any one tell what NW 7.5 SP ??? level supports Odata 4.0 or how to check Odata 4.0 is supported on NW 7.5 SP3
OData v4 is not yet suppoted in Gateway. See above in the comments the reply of Andre Fischer: http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-67382#comment-646282
... 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...
I could not view the content SAP Product Road Map for SAP Gateway.
Kindly suggest, should I have any specific credentials to access the same.
The Road Maps are no longer on SCN, they have moved to http://www.sap.com/roadmaps which is redirecting to http://go.sap.com/solution/roadmaps.html
Here is the new link to the SAP Gateway Road Map.
A S-User ID is still required.
Does NW 7.5 require a HANA database for the implementation of Fiori apps? Please see https://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw75/helpdata/en/d7/bd4b5d70d94f09bcf99b221a7a1688/content.htm?frameset=/en/e9/d78b6aa0fc4f0ea0f41408dbc8a7ad/frameset.htm¤t_toc=/en/b3/69e10d33664f0a9896e8d119620f64/plain.htm&node_id=34&show_children=true#jump3
We plan on upgrading to BW 7.5 non-HANA and I would like to know if the old WAD templates will be supported ?
The same question goes to BW 7.5 on HANA
which "old" Web Templates are you referring to?
3.x or 7.x?
As long there is a BI-JAVA Instance available, the WAD is supported on non/HANA Version of BW
See details of the BW upgrade here - https://blogs.sap.com/2016/10/11/software-application-lifecycle-management-sap-bw/#bwupgrade
