Requirements for Slim Edition

Hi All,

I have just downloaded WAS Slim Edition.

1. I have a Win XP Home edition laptop. Would it be possible to install it on this.

2. My RAM is 512MB. However i have a 100GB of hard drive capacity. Is there a way i can somehow i can improve my system performance by allowing some part of my hard drive as a kind of swap space.

3. Can i deploy JDI sca's on the slim version. Is this advisable.

4. What is the SP version of Slim Edition. Can i upgrade it to the latest version of WAS i.e. SP13 by downloading the upgrades from service marketplace and applying patches.

Please do let me know your suggestions on these points.

    Hi Sidhart,

    1. You should be able to install. You can follow my Weblog: <a href="/people/gregor.wolf3/blog/2005/09/24/a-visual-installation-guide-on-sneak-preview-sap-netweaver-04-java-slim-edition">A Visual Installation Guide on Sneak Preview SAP NetWeaver 04 Java Slim Edition</a>. Your Harddisk must have NTFS File system. Please be aware of the limitations.

    2. I've also installed with 512 MB. Thats quite ok. Windows automatically creates a swap file. But when your System is going to swap, performance decreases enormously.

    3. I think it should work

    4. The SP of Slim Edition is 11. I don't think that you can upgrade. But you can give it a try.
