Some questions form beginner.

Hello, I started studying SAP from yesterday.

I have some questions about SAP ERP and NetWeaver.

1. On my understanding, NetWeaver is like a Tomcat or Websphere that enables user run a java web application.

likewise, NetWeaver can run any application developed in ABAP, is it right?

2. I can see download link for NetWeaver in this site, but failed to find SAP ERP download link.

Where can I download SAP ERP? and Is SAP ERP included in NetWeaver Main Release?

3. If NetWeaver Main Release don't include SAP ERP, why does the company release NetWeaver only? to make ABAP program?

Hope to receive responses 😊, Have a good day.

    Hi Sunghoon,

    1. Netweaver is the platform (earlier called as Basis, WebAS) for most of the SAP products, where we can have abap engine(application server) or java engine (application server) running. Its all depends on our usage.

    2. Yes you can find the download link for netweaver trail version in this site, which would useful to understand the platform related functionalities ( for SAP administrators) or other technical and functional functionalities will have limited access in this package.

    ERP or any other SAP products can be downloaded only from SAP Service Marketplace - - You need to have S user ID to download anything from this place.

    No ERP won't included in the netweaver main release, its comes in SAP Business suite solutions

    3. Once Netweaver is the platform on which all other SAP Products runs. If you have license to ERP or when you install ERP, its automatically install the netweaver.

    Hope this helps
