What's the difference among SDM, JSPM and DeployTool?

Hi!

I do not understand why we cannot just have a single tool to do the java deployment exclusively?

Please advise. Thanks!

    Hello Jennifer,

    Here is the detailed information about each of these :

    JSPM

    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw70/helpdata/en/25/c45b4211aac353e10000000a1550b0/frameset.htm

    SDM

    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw70/helpdata/en/22/a7663bb3808c1fe10000000a114084/frameset.htm

    Deploy Tool

    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw70/helpdata/en/22/a7663bb3808c1fe10000000a114084/frameset.htm

    In short, If you want to update the SP level of j2ee engine, you would use JSPM. JSPM uses SDM for the deployment however, it takes care of the sequence of the SCAs and lot more checks.

    If you want to deploy a single SCA/SDA/EAR, you would use SDM.

    Deploytool was used in 6.20 extensively for the EAR deployment. You don't use Deploytool directly anymore in later releases.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,

    Hi Jennifer,

    Actually there was SDMwith which we were uploading the java support packages even now we can use SDM to do that.

    But JSPM is a new tool provided by SAP which allows you to easily install the components and support packages.JSPM is just like SPAM/SAINT.I hope this helps.

    Reward points if helpfull.

    Regards,

    Vamshi.
