Reccomendation on what to install - Dev. Workplace vs CE

We recently upgraded our portals/NW java app environment to NW04s SP12, however all of our developers still have NW04 SP14 developer workplace installed. We would like to get everyone's local development environments up to an appropriate patch level, but are confused on where to go.

Our environment looks like this:

1. Portals and custom java applications (webdynpro and JSP) is at NW04s sp12 (with custom web dynpro development)

2. NWDI server is at NW04 SP19

3. ERP is at ECC 6.0 ABAP stack only

4. Developers machines are at Developer Workplace (java engine and NWDS) at NW04 SP14

Should we upgrade our developer's machines to Dev Workplace NW04s SP12 or put them on CE? Is CE supported in our current landscape (DI server @ NW04 SP19, and a Portals NW04S SP12 ). Any reccomendations?

    Hi Eric,

    if you currently have your applications on NW04s SP12 portal you should install the nw2004s dev workplace.

    The CE is a standalone system, which is seperated from the portal and is used for developing composites. if you currently develop or plan further implementation on the webdynpro or jspdynpage approach then keep on the portal track. the EP 7.1 rampup starts in Q1/2008 and will bring you the j2ee5 webas, if you need it.

    If you want to develop your apps on the earlier CAF approach then you should decide to have a CE system - better than CAF anymore (CE apps you can link in your portal).

    If you decided to go to the CE, then keep in mind you have to migrate your content. WD and jspdynpage apps will be not complicated.

    ...and upgrad your NWDI to NW2004s SP13, so DI and CE play together. Import the CE libs in your track and chance the build options for your track to jdk1.5

    Hope that gave you a short overview.

    Regards, Jens

    Thanks for the input. I guess we'll press on with NW04s Dev Workplace and start thinking about how to land CE in our environment.
