SAPGUI for Java Support on Mac 10.4



I am using Mac OS 10.4 Tiger version with SAP GUI 6.4 rev6.

when I use SAPGUI 6.4 for eCATT Scripts, I am not able to append or insert new rows in the Parameter list.

Although, all the commands/pushbuttons are working as they should. On pressing the Append button, a line is inserted in the parameter list, I can add new parameter also. But the problem comes while saving the changes. The system message shows that test script saved successfully, but the changes are not reflected in the parameter list.

The details about the hardware/ software am using are:


Machine Name: iMac

Machine Model: PowerMac6,1

CPU Type: PowerPC G4 (3.3)


System Version: Mac OS X 10.4 (8A428)

Kernel Version: Darwin 8.0.0


SAPGUI for Java 6.40 rev 6

(Version ID 064000040600)

Build: Wed Dec 21 13:01:37 MET 2005 on uw1059

Java VM: Apple Computer, Inc. Version 1.4.2-54

OS: Mac OS X(ppc) Version 10.4

I would like to know if anyone else has faced the same problem with this configuration?

Do I need to change my configuration?

I am currently using SAPGUI for Java 6.3 rev8 for my eCATT scripting without the above problem.

One more problem is that am no more able to do recording through SAPGUI command in eCATT. OSS note 454939 says that SAPGUI for Java does not support eCATT. Use SAPGUI for windows for SAPGUI recordings.

Does that mean SAPGUI recording in eCATT will not be supported for SAPGUI for Java any further?
