Just starting - what do I need?


I want to setup a development/learning environment for SAP netweaver on a VMWare virtual machine.

My goal is to learn how to interface systems into SAP using Java or Dot.Net as well as to learn basic survival skills in ABAP development.

My question is what do I need to buy and or download to get an effective environment up and running quickly.

I am about to order

o 50080920 DVD NW 2004s ABAP Trial Version (English)

o 50064143 CD Mini Web AS 6.20 ABAP Engine (3)

Do I need both?

Other questions include:

What Java IDE can I use (Eclipse / Netbeans)?

Is the book ABAP Objects recommended?

Where do I find/download SP's for the MiniWAS environment? (and installation instructions)

Can I load IDES on this system?

Where can I find a mini MySAP system?
