Difference WAS 6.3 and 6.4


We are in the middle of planning a project for converting our existing ITS application towards a SAP WebASÂ Â Webdynpro application.

In that respect I am curious to learn what the main differences are between release 6.3 and 6.4?

We also understood that release 6.3 is only available for ramp-up customers (but the sign-in process is being ended already) and that release 6.4 will only ramp-up as of december ... Â

We plan to go live end december so basically we have an issue here ... what is the "fastest"(non-official) way to become a) a 6.3 rampup or b) get the 6.4 software ...

    Hi Steven,

    from the Java point of view, 6.30 is more or less the same as 6.40. Only difference is the so-called Java Development Infrastructure, which consists of Design Time Repository, Build Service and Change Management Services.

    6.30 comes with a J2EE 1.3 compliant app server plus full-blown eclipse-based Java IDE plus Web Dynpro and a comprehensive persistency toolset.

    6.30 SP3 brings you automatically to 6.40 (except JDI which requires a separat ramp-up).

    To participate in 6.30 ramp-up just send a mail to

      Hi Steven,

      6.40 will be still J2EE 1.4, you will be able to use jdk 1.4 however. For the next major release we are shooting for J2EE 1.4.
