    Only one answer but SP6 should be available on service marketplace already.

    Cheers,

    P.S.: I assume the PDK for EP 6.0 will (at least) be linked from SDN.

    Hi Senthil,

    the PDK for EP 6.0 is already available for download on iViewStudio (http://www.iviewstudio.com). Please note that the PDK for EP 6.0 is now a business package and only runs an a standard EP 6.0 installation, thus the PDK can only be used by current ramp-up customers. However, the PDK documentation is already accessible to everyone.

    Regarding certification, there will be information available later this month. In extend to what is already offered for EP 5.0, with EP 6.0 SAP will start to certify complete business packages (iViews and structure). Please check iViewStudio > Vendor zone for updates on this topic.

    Regards

    Sven

      Hi,

      Raimund .Thanks for the response.

      Bit surprised on EP6 PDK, actually i thought of downloading the EP6 PDK and show some sample iviews to my customer and propose to upgrade my EP5 SP5 to EP6.

      As Bjorn said it will be nice if we can download EP6 PDK individually and work on it.

      Any advantages on this new approach...

      Atleast can you tell me when EP6 will be available in the market(unrestricted version)...Website says end of October 2003....

      Expecting your thoughts

      Cheers

      Senthil

    Has there been any movement on a standalone PDK for EP6?

    Is such a thing available now, I just downloaded the PDK and indeed it is a business package.

    Or should I look at the eclipse extensions....???

      >>The PDK business package for EP6 is only a role and some iviews for uploading par files

      ... and documentation, and javadocs, and running examples, and...

      This is a bit more than just a role and some iviews 😊

      Though it was nice to have a complete "developer package" like in PDK for EP5, it also has caused some headache when problems arised like "Why does my component run in the PDK but not in the EP" and vice versa.

    But then if its only roles, ivews and examples - it isn't really a PDK is it..... or am I missing something?

    For example how does it improve the development process, does it come with extra debugging facilities, or respond much quicker them the normal portal.

    Basically in what way does it cut down the development cycle?

    Please don't take this as negative, I just witn to know what to expect.

    I am looking into installing the zipped version of the portal on my own desktop, but need to get mssql first 😔

      Hi,

      Some EP6 rampup customers have local portals installed on their laptops or workstations. The requirements are 1GB RAM and approximately 1.5 GB disk in order to install the WebAS 6.40 and EP6. Performance on the Feature Pack release is quite good on a laptop and startup is much faster than SP2.

      We also have some customers which are using a central portal for development, but real-time debugging is a little trickier in that case.

      A real advantage to using a real portal for development is that you have the complete features and functionality available and don't run into some of the integration issues that occurred with the Tomcat based PDK.

      Since SP2 is out of rampup now, it is generally available to any customer. I'm not sure of the licensing with regard to developers, but the SP2 based PDK works quite well on my Thinkpad R32 with 1GB RAM. The NW04 release is even better.

      Best regards,

      Will
