SAP NetWeaver AS for ABAP 7.52 was released on 11th of September to the SAP NetWeaver customer base.
SAP NetWeaver AS for ABAP 7.52 is the compatible follow up release of SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP 7.4, 7.5 or 7.51. Depending on your current release, you can set up SAP NetWeaver AS for ABAP 7.52 either through new installation or upgrade from an older SAP NetWeaver AS for ABAP installation.
SAP NetWeaver AS for ABAP 7.52 offers the foundation for SAP S/4HANA on-premise edition 1709 and is also available as a standalone platform for custom development of modern ABAP-based business applications. Along with these two major use cases SAP NetWeaver AS for ABAP 7.52 is the foundation for standalone ABAP add-ons that are only supported on top the SAP HANA database like Hybris Marketing and Compliance. The SAP Fiori Front-end Server (FES) as a prominent example uses SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP 7.52 as its foundation.
Modern ABAP development in Eclipse benefits from ABAP language improvements, further SAP HANA optimizations and is based on Core Data Services (CDS) and responsive SAP Fiori UI. Nevertheless all classical ABAP UI technologies (Web Dynpro etc.) are still fully supported. Further major step on the way to efficient development of SAP HANA optimized SAP Fiori apps is the use of the new RESTful ABAP programming model which includes technologies such as CDS, Business Object Processing Framework (BOPF), SAP Gateway and SAPUI5.
SAP NetWeaver AS for ABAP 7.52 supports real-time event-driven programming using ABAP Channels and ABAP Daemons and Industrial IoT scenarios with shop-floor applications.
SAP NetWeaver AS for ABAP 7.52 offers effective code analysis tools to minimize the effort for our customers to adapt custom code during system conversion to SAP S/4HANA. The adaptations are required due to the simplifications (e.g. data model changes, removal of obsolete functionality, removal of redundant components) made in SAP S/4HANA in comparison to the classic SAP Business Suite.
The SAP S/4HANA extensibility, i.e. the in-app extensibility and the side-by-side extensibility using SAP Cloud Platform, was further optimized in the release.
