Using the Netweaver IDE with the Internet Sales webshop (Java)

Hello all,

For some time now I've been working on a CRM ISA webshop based on Java. I'm getting quite the hang of it, but what I am absolutely missing is a good IDE to work in. When the Netweaver devstudio sneak preview was released I tried to get it to work with ISA, but without luck unfortunately. Does anyone have experience with this or have any suggestions? I would really like to have a good IDE with some nice software logistics features like version management, compiling, building, deploying etc (netweaver preferably). At the moment everything is done with the windows explorers working on a network share that point to the root dir of the webshop. And using some simple editors to edit JSP's, HTML and java classes.

Here's some more details about the setup. We got three environments for dev, qas and prd. JSP's are created and edited directly in the source directory of the custom webshop. Java classes are created in WEB-INF/classes directory of the webshop root dir. We're using the Ant buildtool to create the EAR file for deployment, but use file-copy for minor changes.

Any suggestions are very welcome !

    the developer studio is still not your way to go, as you have to wait until ISA has been ported to NetWeaver 04 at least. And to my knowledge that is not the case - besides that you then have to make your company to update to that version.

    BUT, there is hope: You could use standard eclipse, as it gives you support for some of the things you miss. And you will have an intro to the base technolgy, that lays under the studio, that you will come in front of sooner or later. (

    I wrote an article a while ago that gives an introduction how to use 6.20 with eclipse, which should be your environment: as 6.20 jsp demo on eclipse

    Hope this helps,
