porting existing app into SAP environment

I am EXTREMLY new to the SAP environment and have spent the last few days downloading, reading, and playing with NetWeaver (the J2EE 5 Version). I don’t have much working but that is fine for now. I have a more urgent and hopefully simple question I need to answer.

I work for a small company. We have an application that works really well and we are starting to get some traction with larger clients. Some of these clients have, or are rumored to have, SAP installations.

Our application was not built with SAP, or with knowledge of SAP. Instead built on standard open source technologies, specifically MyEclipse (Eclipse), JBoss, Servlets, Hibernate, two EJB’s, etc.

I have the projects imported into NetWeaver and I am struggling to get them deployed into the SAP server. I just can not seem to get that working. But that is another story.

<b>The question</b>:

Can I take existing code and make this work? Or do I have to create each project in NetWeaver so that deployment descriptors (annotations I would guess) are created by NetWeaver and then copy each code module into the project? Is there an easy (I pray that there is) way to do this?

I really have to get back to my company with a decent guess (and plan) on what porting our existing application into an SAP environment will take.

Does anyone have any thoughts?

Thanks or your help, sorry to post this but I am running out of time and I need someone in the Know to help me out. And yes, I know that the day or two that I was given is no where near enough time to figure this out.
