Question regarding local J2EE WAS in JDI


Dear Sirs,

We are considering implementing JDI in our system landscape. In the JDI papers you are advised that every developer has access to his/hers WAS on a local PC for testing purpose.

There are however a few downsides with this; you can download the slim edition (Developer Workspace) with a 90 day trail period, and then you have to start paying a license. How big is this license? (guess I'm told to contact my local SAP office, but it will be interesting to know a rough estimate. Are we talking 100$, 500$, 1000$, ...)

In addition running a WAS on the developer PC, requires a lot from the developers computer.

How does people overcome the challenges of running a local WAS? Can an alternative to a local WAS, be to install a “separate” WAS, which acts as a local WAS for the developers?

The way I see it there is a need for a place where developers can test more freely than in DEV, and this way reduce the number of activities on the CMS.

Best regards,
