Tutorials on how to use the demo content in SAP NetWeaver Application Server ABAP & SAP Business Warehouse 7.4 SP8 on SAP HANA 1.0 SP8 [developer edition] available?


I can access the instance of this solution: "SAP NetWeaver Application Server ABAP & SAP Business Warehouse 7.4 SP8 on SAP HANA 1.0 SP8 [developer edition]" via the external frontend ip.

I found a lot of content there in the transaction RSA1 :

1.) NetWeaver-Demo 0D_NW_DEMO

2.) Master_Demo MASTER_DEMO


4.) E-Procurement Management Modell (NW Demo EPM) 0D_NW_DEMO_EPM

The demo content is having data already. Also I have run "SEPM_DG_OIA - EPM: Datengenerierer für HANA/OIA ".

My questions:

a) there are any tutorials on these demo contents somewhere?

b) there is a German speaking forum dealing with CAL, where I could discuss things?

c) for data modeling I would like to activate some LIS DataSources from the Business Content. That is possible? There doesn't seem to be an ERP source system. I just found:FLATFILE, SAP_DEMO, A4HCLNT001, MYSELF_ODP, HANA_HBD. All active.

d) I would like to practice programming in ABAP. This is offline possible with a kind of mini- sap? There, I found only a version running on Windows XP.

e) the bex analyzer doesn't run. Anybody got it running?

Thank you for your help in advance!

Best regards

    Hi Achim,

    lots of questions, I'm not able to answer all of them. But let's see.

    a and c) Basically the Developer Edition is a NetWeaver AS ABAP preconfigured solution, but no ERP solution - NetWeaver AS ABAP only. The preconfigured scenarios are described in Guides and Tutorials for the Developer Edition of AS ABAP incl. BW on SAP HANA.

    b) I don't know anything about a German speaking forum for CAL, but the main discussion is in .

    d) Today we published the AS ABAP Developer Edition on ASE to download: SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP 7.40 SP8 - Developer Edition to Download. It runs on Linux but there is a step by step guide how to install a Linux OS on VM Ware and the AS ABAP on Linux - try it.

    Kind regards

    Hi Thea,

    thanks a lot for your answer! :-)

    The links are interesting and helpful. I also got d) on Linux running... until I was greeted by a short dump. I will investigate more, tomorrow. As I don't know Linux, I found it quite challenging to work in the shell. Will there be one windows version coming as a developer edition to download?

    Kind regards


    PS: regarding e) it is the trial for

    SAP NetWeaver Application Server ABAP not JAVA. Therefore, the java-stack is not implemented. That's why the BEx Analyzer can't be executed. However, I am wondering, why the BEx Tools where implemented then. Also, maybe the java-stack is included in SAP Hana? -I will investigate.
