SAP ABAP Platform 1909, Developer Edition: Currently Not Available

Update, 2nd June, 2022

Please note: The developer edition on Docker is still not available. Please see below.

However, for those who already downloaded the image previously, the license file expires today.

In the meantime, please update your license from:

SAP License Keys for Preview, Evaluation and Developer Versions (minisap)

IMPORTANT: The license is valid until 31st March 2023. However, the comment is wrong (“2022”).

(See comment from Ralf Henning below.)

Please ignore the comment. We will update the whole license file in due course.

We apologise for the inconvenience.

Best wishes,

Julie.

 

Update, 18th January, 2022: ABAP on Docker

Hi again, everyone. Update from the Project Lead, Ralf Henning:

„All SAP products need to keep pace with evolving standards, such as security and legal. Demo products like the developer edition are no exception.

For this reason, we are enhancing the checks that we perform before release, as a precautionary measure.

The bad news is that this will take time.

The good news is that, firstly, the product will be more robust, and secondly, we are working full steam on version 2020.

Again, we are very sorry for the inconvenience; we really want to get this product out as soon as we can.”

Introduction

ABAP%20Platform%201909%20At%20A%20Glance

ABAP Platform 1909 At A Glance

 

The ABAP Platform on SAP HANA 2.0 provides a great platform for trying out the ABAP language and toolset. It is extensively pre-configured with Fiori launchpad, SAP Cloud Connector, SAP Java Virtual Machine, pre-configured backend /frontend connections, roles, and sample applications.

This solution is intended for two groups of developers:

  • Non-ABAP developers, who are interested in learning more about the ABAP language and development tools
  • ABAP developers, who are interested in learning about version 7.54

How to get it: NEW Docker Image

We now provide everything you need in one Docker image. This means that you no longer have to set up a virtual machine, Linux distro, and ABAP server.

Get it here: SAP ABAP Platform 1909, Developer Edition on DockerHub

Detailed setup instructions are also available here: Setup Instructions

Prerequisites and Setup

You will need to register with DockerHub.

You will need:

  • Either: a Docker for Desktop installation, for Windows or Mac.
  • Or Docker Engine for Linux, e.g. Ubuntu.

During installation, you will need to read and accept the SAP Software End User License Agreement. A link is provided here for your convenience: SAP Software End User License Agreement.

Detailed setup instructions are available here: Setup Instructions

Additional products and material: SAPGUI for Windows / SAPGUI for Java, Readme, miniSAP License

All available in SAP Developers Trials and Downloads .

 

SAP Cloud Appliance Library (CAL) solution, as of 14th June, 2021

As an alternative to the developer edition on Docker, we are now also offering this as a. You can access this and create your own instance of SAP ABAP Platform 1909, Developer Edition here:

SAP ABAP Platform 1909, Developer Edition (CAL)

Highlights of the 1909 Edition

ABAP RESTful Application Programming Model (RAP)

ABAP RESTful Application Programming Model – The Big Picture

The ABAP RESTful Application Programming Model (short: RAP) offers developers an efficient way to build enterprise-ready, SAP HANA-optimized, OData-based Fiori UI services and Web APIs in the cloud as well as on-premise. It is the evolutionary successor to the ABAP Programming Model for SAP Fiori.

To make it easier for you to get started, we have also added the demo and training data model, the ABAP Flight Reference Scenario.

For more information, see:

 

Git-Enabled Change and Transport System (gCTS)

gCTS%20%3D%20CTS%20+%20git

gCTS = CTS + git

A new way of transporting objects, gCTS enables you to use Git to store your ABAP development objects. gCTS makes use of special Git features, such as working on local copies of a central remote Git repository. Software development takes place in the usual editors like ABAP Development Tools (ADT). Changes to objects are still recorded in transport requests. Current states of objects can be pushed to remote Git repositories, either by releasing a transport request or while you’re working.’

For more general information on gCTS, see this blog post: gCTS is here, by Karin Spiegel

For the official documentation overview, see: Git-Enabled Change and Transport System

The official documentation for configuration, Configuring Git-enabled Change and Transport System contains three steps. However, we have preconfigured the first two, so you only have to complete the third,  Configure Repositories.

Some certificates are already available. If you would like to connect to your own GitHub server or to a provider other than github.com, you have to add the appropriate certificates to the ABAP system in transaction STRUST. The configuration has been done for the default user ‘DEVELOPER’.

To get started with gCTS, simply open the gCTS app in the SAP Fiori Launchpad (FLP).

If you are a SAP customer, partner, or employee, the following SAP Note provides additional information: SAP Note: 2821718 . However, the essential configuration has already been done for everyone.

Custom Code Migration with the ABAP Test Cockpit (ATC)

We actually introduced this in AS ABAP 7.52 SP04, Developer Edition and it was very popular, so we decided to include it again. Basically,we’ve preconfigured the developer edition to run as a central check system for those checks. You can test this out of the box locally in SAP ADT, then configure the rest of your landscape to work with it.

This is particularly useful for SAP S/4HANA Readiness Checks and SAP Cloud Readiness Check.

For more general information on ATC, see these two excellent blogs, by Olga Dolinskaja:

SAP Cloud Connector

SAP%20Cloud%20Connector

SAP Cloud Connector

SAP Cloud Connector provides a link between SAP Cloud Platform applications and on-premise systems. It runs as on-premise agent in a secured network; acts as a reverse invoke proxy between the on-premise network and SAP Cloud Platform; and lets you use existing on-premise assets without exposing the entire internal landscape.

If you are interested in connecting your developer edition with a licensed version of SAP Cloud Platform, ABAP Environment (aka “Steampunk”), I have written a tutorial mission on this: Connect Your On-Premise System with SAP Cloud Platform, ABAP Environment

For more information, see:

abapGit

Yes, abapGit is available out of the box.

Troubleshooting

From now on, please DO NOT post a blog comment if you require troubleshooting.

Why?

  • Very few people follow these blog posts, so you will not get help from the vast majority of the community
  • It makes it difficult for other users to find similar issues in future, which leads to many duplicated errors
  • There is no capacity to monitor all blogs for all released versions

A. If it’s a problem downloading the files, rather than installing the downloaded files, please try the following:

  1. Delete your cache.
  2. Try a different browser.
  3. If that fails, please email SCNContent [at]sap[dot]com, with:
    – User ID
    – User IP
    – Date, Time, Time zone, and location (country) of attempted downloads
    – screenshot of the error
    – URL of download
    – Note: URL must be in the form: (https://www.sap.com/registration/trial.GUID1.html?id=guid2&external-site=GUID3)

B. If it’s a problem while you are using the developer edtion, please post on the ABAP Development forum : ABAP Development: Ask a Question , using the hashtag #ABAP_Trial.

I have also started compiling FAQ and Troubleshooting – so if you have any questions, please check there first.

Thank you for your understanding.

Update, 19th March, 2021: André Fischer has written a short blog post: How to gracefully shutdown your SAP ABAP Platform Developer Edition when shutting down Windows

Guides and Tutorials

If you’re not sure where to start with your new system, we have written several tutorials.

FAQ and Troubleshooting also contains some info on Cookbook-style projects, where Community members have described projects involving different versions of the developer edition.

Enjoy!

      Hi Gaurav,

      The Docker image is temporarily unavailable, due to the worldwide log4j issue.

      It does not appear that the Docker image is affected, but we need to analyze this independently, before we restore it on Docker Hub.

      Sorry for the inconvenience.

      Hi Julie,

      you wrote the issue may be the log4j security alert.

      This can be addressed/mitigated within a development environment...

       

      Can SAP please release some kind of vm/installfiles/... if the docker solution is not safe enough?

      In SAP trainings this docker container is still mentioned as the "best solution if you want to test, what you just learned!"

       

      Thank you 🙂

      Hi Markus,

      Just to be clear: There were no issues specific to log4j.

      What has happened is that SAP's Compliance and Program Management standards have evolved.

      Therefore, we need to ensure that we are compliant with the new standards.

      I will post at the top of this blog post as soon as there is any new information.

      I apologise for the inconvenience.

      Best wishes,

      Julie Plummer.

      Dear Julie,

      your own statement from December 21 reads:

      Hi Gaurav,

      The Docker image is temporarily unavailable, due to the worldwide log4j issue.

      It does not appear that the Docker image is affected, but we need to analyze this independently, before we restore it on Docker Hub.

      Sorry for the inconvenience.

      [emphasizes done by me]
      It hasn't come up since, so the initial takedown was because of the log4j issue.

      After all the situation for devs is:

      • No gCTS or S/4 testsystem, that does come without cost (And NO! the "free" Dev solution from SAP Cloud still costs real money, because I have to pay to AWS/Azure/Google/...)
      • In many OpenSAP and SAP Courses the missing docker is referenced as a good learning opportunity

      If the SAP's Compliance and Program Management standards have evolved, thats totally fine for the next ABAP Dev Container 2109 or 2209, but after log4j is not the issue anymore I dont see any reason to not upload the 1909 container again.
      Thankfully I can still download the 7.51 and 7.52 dev trials to test some things, and they may not meet the evolved standards either.

      ABAP Devs all around the world are now waiting for over six months for the container to be available. We, as the developers, need to learn this things! Because we are the ones telling consultants and controllers about new and exciting features and possibilities we need to provide better tested and faster deployed (CI/CD !!!!) results.

      Does SAP want to get rid of all ABAP developers, who are interested in new technologies?

      Best wishes

      Markus

      I think it isn't released as independent installable system so no VM installation . So only option is to wait until docker image is available again

      Author's profile photo Uwe Fetzer
      Uwe Fetzer

      Hi Welly,

      as Muhammad already mentioned, we have to wait for the Docker image to return.

      After that you can install Ubuntu or another Linux of your choice within a VM and Docker on top. But for this solution you need 32GB memory.

      If you are using Windows you can install Docker in the Windows Subsystem Linux (WSL2) and you don't need an extra VM. Also 32GB required.

      Why 2020 when the 2021 release is available already? I mean I'm happy for whichever version but I'm curious how the decision process for the release version looks like.

      Hi Sebastian,

      This is a valid question.

      To go through the whole procedure from licensed product release (2021) to developer edition takes some time (months, not weeks.)

      So, we have already completed 80-90% of what we need to do for 2020.

      If we scrapped this and went straight to 2021, we would be starting from scratch and could take months more. Once 2020 is out, we hope to start work on 2021.

      HTH Julie.

      Today i run the command docker start -ai a4h and the result is:

      FAIL: process hdbindexserver HDB Indexserver-HDB not running
      HDB: the start command failed, exit code=2
      The service HDB has failed to start and initialization is blocked until the problem is resolved
      You can try your luck 10 times until initialization is terminated
      Hint: docker containers can be joined by: docker exec -it <name> bash
      Hint: Container must have at least 16GB RAM available
      Hint: Container must have at least 70GB DISK free

      This is because the system is currently disabled or something in my computer is consuming RAM?

      Hi Gaurav,

      Your question has nothing to do with ABAP developer edition. This means that the people you need to reach are unlikely to see it.

      Please post a question in the openSAP feedback.

      Failing that, you can post a question in the ABAP Development forum.

      Honestly, this is the best way to get help.

      Please can the 1909 docker image be re-enabled?

      It seems daft it has been removed for those who need it with no replacement.

      Security issues are not an issue for isolated Developer environments, a warning would be sufficient.

       

      Update 06/05/2022 - I found the following tutorial works great, and recommend it for anyone that cannot wait for the docker image. 

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mk9dslG-_RU&ab_channel=Pawe%C5%82Wiejkut

      *Note* the SAP installation will fail the first time with "modlib.jslib.caughtException" because the licence needs updating located here: "sybase/NPL/SYSAM-2_0/licenses"

      Replace the licence with the one from the trial download page called "SAP ABAP AS Part License", and rerun the installation, and it should then complete successfully

       

      To gain access to create ABAP programs when logged in as DEVELOPER, password: "Down1oad" ....

      Login with user "SAP*"using password "Down1oad"

      Use transaction "SLICENSE" to find hardware key , delete the existing license

      Go here https://go.support.sap.com/minisap/#/minisap
      and generate a license selecting the "NPL - SAP NetWeaver 7.x (MaxDB)" option

      Install the licence from the "SLICENSE" transaction

      Hi Martin,

      No it's not daft. Breaking SAP Compliance standards would arguably be daft :-).

      These exist because a tiny handful of actors are malevolent.

      Also, not all users are experts at setting up their environment.

      I understand the frustration.

      However, we can't go faster by cutting corners.

      Sorry. I'll be delighted to broadcast the re-release of 1909 as soon as possible.

      Best wishes,

      Julie Plummer, SAP SE.

      Hi Julie,

       

      "the re-release of 1909"

       

      Does this mean that BOTH 1909 and 2020 will be available when the time is right?

       

      Regards,

      Declan.

      Are they providing SAP Dev. as an Docker image or not? - I'm working on a devel. system / vmware at the moment and this is ultra slow after a couple of months. - I would like to switch to the docker envionment...

      ...but SAP makes is somehow impossible to setup their development system.

      I don't think VMWare is the issue causing your slowdown. I've been using my 7.52 dev edition on VMWare for years and it's still perfectly fine.

      If speed is the reason then think twice about switching to A4H on Docker because it will be slower. Docker is not inherently faster either, under non-Linux environments you're better off with VMWare for running SAP systems. My 7.52 starts up a LOT faster than A4H (60-70 seconds vs. >20 mins).

      Something is seriously wrong: 20 frickin' minutes? O_o

      Granted, I'm using a Linux host but the startup times are roughly comparable.

      The 20min problem is twofold:

      Firstly, Docker is Linux-native and runs a little different on MacOS/Windows. As Sebastian talks about VMWare I assume he's running Mac or Windows.

      On Mac/Win we need Docker Desktop, which actually runs a Linux VM under the hood. The issue is that Docker Desktop uses a fixed amount of memory as defined in the resource config. If I want to run A4H on my MacBook then I set it to 20GB, and that's what Docker Desktop will consume on startup - even if I just want to run a tiny Kroki or Gitea system. Therefore starting up a 16GB+ Docker Desktop takes a little while if you want to run A4H on non-Linux hosts. 

      Secondly, A4H startup gets to a login-able state in a couple of minutes but then spends a good 10 minutes or so exercising the CPU fan by "doing stuff" (on Linux too) until it settles down. It's not really useable during this time so I consider this startup time.

      After a total of 20 minutes it's fast. Once it's settled in, I can run both A4H and 7.52 on VMware simultaneously on my 32GB MacBook without a problem, I can even start Windows VM too if I need it.

      However another issue is that A4H also constantly consumes CPU on my system (something to do with A4H 's virtual filesystem setup). So I run A4H on my slower Linux NAS and my MacBook's Docker is set to 2GB for running "normal" sized Docker images.

      Having it is one thing.

      Another is having the right to redistribute it.

      Hi Massimo,

      1. Are you referring to the ASE license? It's available here:

      https://developers.sap.com/trials-downloads.html - search for ABAP.

      Andrea is correct: The license expires 31st March 2023. HOWEVER, the comment in the license is wrong ("2022"). I apologise for the inconvenience. (See comment below from Ralf Henning.)

      2. Or are you referring to the ABAP application server license for 7.52 SP04?

      That's available here: new license! ("minisap").

      Both are up-to-date.

      Best wishes,

      Julie Plummer.

      How to get a valid SAP ASE Testdrive license

      If you need to get a valid SAP ASE Testdrive license:

      1 Goto https://developers.sap.com/trials-downloads.html

      2 Look for SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP Developer Edition 7.52 SP04

      3 Download the last file SAP ABAP ASE Part license.

      Here you will find a valid license and instructions how to apply. To avoid confusions: The comment at the lic file itself is wrong. It says lic is valid up to March 2022. But in fact this lic is valid up to March 2023. (verified by the SAP ASE Expert)

      I'm sorry for the confusion. Hope this helps

      Difference between Docker Image and Version in SAP Cal (Cloud Appliance Library)? 

      I would like to know what is the difference between the version as Docker image and the one available in SAP Cal. It seems that this one can also be launched as an instance without any restriction so far. I would obviously not like to ensure with my question that this version is also no longer available. However, I wonder if the same reasons apply here with the associated risks as for the Docker version.

      Regards,
      Pascal

      Hi Julie, do you know when we could receive any news about this? I was hoping to use this for self-study.

      Thanks.

      Hi Guillermo,

      I think you can bury this topic. It seems that SAP doesn’t have anymore the intention to support the developers in this way.

      There only focus lies on the cloud solutions. Everything On-Premise or local is dead.

      Kind regards

      Matthias

      Hi Matthias,

      Thanks for your answer, but i really hope you're wrong. Testing and learning abap in your own local server without all the limitations of cloud would be fantastic, but at the end, i think you're right.

      Regards.

      Guillermo

      From a Dev/Ops perspective this docker image is quite interesting - so I really hope there will be some update on this. But yeah, it looks like as you're right.  Bests Tom

      Most of the new S4 HANA projects are still built on the on-premise architecture without Fiori.

      Some inexperienced mid-sized companies work on the cloud version but I think it will be disaster.

      They don't know how slow sap employees work. 😴😴😴😴
