ABAP_Trial - NPL - Maintenance License

Hi,

I want to install ST-A/PI package to my ABAP trial version so that I can experiment with the transaction ST12 but the transaction SAINT requires me to install a maintenance license.

Please advise how can I get a maintenance license for my ABAP trail version.

Thanks so much!

Amiya

    Hi Amiya,

    Jelena is correct. If you want to try NW features not included in the AS ABAP 7.51 dev edition license, then you need to get the license.

    The point of the *ABAP* trial license is to try ABAP-specific stuff, not general NW stuff - including PI.

    ABAP and NW are not synonyms and should not be used interchangeably.

    Best wishes

    Julie.

    • I get it now.Thanks!

      My apologies to Jelena and you for misunderstanding the offering. My confusion stemmed from the fact that in the download section it's mentioned in an ambiguous way (according to me), which I interpreted as "NW AS ABAP stack" instead of "ABAP trial" as clarified by you now.

      • SAP NetWeaver ABAP AS 7.51 SP02 on ASE

      Besides, you guys provide ST-PI component with the trial version but just not ST-A/PI. Transaction ST12 of ST-A/PI component is used by ABAPers just like the custom code management features (CCAPPS) of the ST-PI component.

    I'm guessing you can purchase a maintenance license from SAP but you might get a bit of a sticker shock there.

    Not sure what exactly in that package but wouldn't you need trial Netweaver rather than trial ABAP for this? Use Google to find more information.

    Jelena,

    I suppose Trial ABAP and Trial NW are being used interchangeably. So, the installation that I have is Trial NW 7.51 on ASE DB. SID is NPL. There are trial DB and NW licenses available for 90-180 days but so far the maintenance license has not been provided.

    The whole point of the Trial versions is that they are for non-productive use and hence available to only test and familiarize oneself with new features of the NW platform and hence the licenses should be available free of cost.
