    Hi,

    <b>ABAP/4:</b>

    ABAP/4 is a registered trademark of SAP Aktiengesellschaft Systeme, Anwendungen, Produkte in der Datenverarbeitung, Neurottstr. 16, D-69190 Walldorf

    ABAP/4 is a programming language developed by SAP for the interactive development of application programs.

    ABAP/4 is a fourth-generation programming language that is the backbone of the R/3 System.

    The language is event-driven with user actions and system events controlling the execution of the applications.

    You can use the ABAP/4 programming language to create entirely new client/server applications,

    as well as extend existing R/3 modules,which is the most common use of the ABAP/4 language.

    For More Information. See the below links...

    <b>Netweaver</b>

    NetWeaver is an application builder from SAP for integrating business processes

    and databases from a number of sources while exploiting the leading Web services technologies.

    Part of the company's mySAP product group, NetWeaver is getting a lot of industry attention

    as the first fully interoperable Web-based cross-application platform that

    can be used to develop not only SAP applications but others as well.

    NetWeaver allows a developer to integrate information and processes from geographically

    dispersed locations using diverse technologies, including Microsoft's .NET, IBM's WebSphere and Sun's Java technologies.

    NetWeaver has been tagged as a product that could help spur industry adoption of Web services.

    Although Web services are often seen as the development model of the future,

    the implementation rate has not been high, often because of competition and incompatibility

    between enabling products. At a January 2003 press conference,

    Microsoft's Bill Gates anticipated that NetWeaver would increase the adoption rate of Web services.

    4. http://www.sap.com/solutions/netweaver/components/portal/index.epx

    Abap/4 is a programming language which is basic for all the modules in sap. Without it no module exists in sap.

    Netweaver is application builder which intergrates the sap with non-sap systems or sap-sytems

    for business purposes.

    i.e. Consider an application in VB with it's own database can communicate with sap

    which is running in different platform with it own database.

    It is inter-operable and hetero-geneous.

    Padmam.

    Hi,

    SAP NetWeaver is a web-based, open integration and application platform that serves as the foundation for enterprise service-oriented architecture (enterprise SOA) and allows the integration and alignment of people, information, and business processes across business and technology boundaries.

    ABAP is a 4GL programming language solely devloped and used with SAP. Almost everything is devloped in ABAP in SAP excluding part of Kernel. But SAP is promoting Java also.
