    hi venkat,

    SAP NW2004s is the mySAP Business Suite edition of SAP NW is a minor release that delivers on specific needs of the mySAP and xapps solutions delivered by SAP in 2005. the "s" stands for "mySAP Business Suite Edition".

    The next major release of NW will deliver on Business Process Platform(BPP) it will be released in 2006.

    Few of the New capabilities in NW2004s

    1)Developing a web based user interface with Web Dynpro fro ABAP.

    2)Enhancements to enabling B2B processes

    3)Enhancements to business task management

    4)Enhancements to business planning

    5)Enhancements to enterprise data warehousing

    6)mass setup of mobile devices

    7)implementing a global portal

    Refer the link for more info

    NW04 is a 'Java version' which means you can develop applications using Java and export them to portal.

    NW04s is a 'ABAP version'.Here you can develop ABAP reports and transactions and export them to portal. There you can create iViews using them.

    Netweaver 04s, includes both the ABAP and Java stacks. The Sneak preview for NW04s is only for the ABAP stack, and the Sneak Preview NW04 SP15 is only the java stack. If you are using the sneak preview for ABAP, you can develop WDA applications and BSP applications, they run directly in the engine, not in a portal. But they can be embeded in an iView in some portal. You don't have to have a portal to run your application. If you are using the java side, you can develop WDJ applications and JSP applications. Same applies here, they run on the java engine, not in a portal, but can be embeded into an iView which runs on the portal. But you don't need a portal for your application to run. The portal is just a frontend UI, the apps themselves run on the underlying engine, whether its ABAP or JAVA.
