What minimum configaration do I need to run SAP Netweaver?

I need to know what hardware/software/data I need to run SAP Netweaver.

What minimum configaration do I need?

I read 512mb of RAM is OK, but 1gb recommended, is that correct!!

How much disc space do I need?

What about running applications, do they run on SAP Web application server? If so we dont need to worry about installing Microsofts IIS or Java/Tomcat?

I was going to work thru the "Dummies Netweaver" book, when it arrives!! Does it come with a default system set up, or do I have to create the data myself??

This is going to be a research project for me, and I am being asked to find a real world problem to solve.

I presume I need to find someone with SAP release 4.7, which may not be easy. How much can I reasonably expect to achieve?? I dont want to aim for creating and deploying Web services with 2-way communication with SAP apps, and Application Integration and find I fall flat on my face!!

I have done some .NET programming in Visual Studio, hopefully SAP's Development Studio tool is similar??

Any tips pointers gatefully received.

Thanks

    This depends on what you're using. I don't know where you've seen that 512 MB is OK, as the NetWeaver always needs WebAS as a core and that alone needs at least 1GB.

    Also for WebAS on a minimum I'd say 5 GB.

    What do you mean by that? In case you have already apps, it would be nice to know what technology they are using. Usually, you don't need neither IIS nor TomCat using WebAS.

    The book NetWeaver for Dummies does not contain software to my knowledge and does not contain technical details to much extend, so you can do actual things with it.

    It was meant for an overview of everything in NetWeaver.

    Best would be to download Web AS 6.40 from SDN and go through the tutorials.

    First of all, 4.7 doesn't help to much for a NetWeaver 04 scenario. Making Web Services in NetWeaver 04 is an easy task. The question is what will be the service behind it.

    Benny,

    I read that in an article in this forum. But

    if minimum requirement is 1gb, that’s fine.

    OK thanks.

    I have created Web services written in ASP.net

    in an IIS environment, and I know the Java

    guys use Tomcat to do the same task as IIS.

    I really just wanted conformation that Web AS

    performs the same function as IIS.

    The only reading material I have managed to

    get hold of so far is Chapters 1 & 3 of

    “Netweaver for Dummies”, so am trying to get

    the basics straight in my head.

    OK thanks.

    Just something simple to begin with. But I

    need to be able to create the service, call

    the service, register the service [UDDI], and

    expose the service the service using WSDL.

    And explain the whole thing in my paper.

    Does the Web AS 6.40 tutorial cover all this??

    Maybe the following book would be more useful.

    What do you think??

    Web Programming with the SAP Web Application

    Server by Frederic Heinemann, Christian Rau

    (Hardcover - August 2003)

    When will it be possible for a company to buy

    mySAP (NetWeaver 04)and be able to use

    Netweaver to create e.g. a Portal system?

    Thanks for your time.

    Regards

    Sean

      Yes, definitely 😊 I would seriously recommend that you first check a summary of the book from your favourite book-buying website. For example, I read: "As the majority of the book is focused on BSP development, ..."

      The problem here is terminology, which directly means marketing. What is do you understand under NW04? Would you think Java (server, programming environment, etc.). Actually I automatically think ABAP (and using BSP as web development environment).

      The fact is that NW04 contains both stacks, and that you can run them in parallel. From what I know, only the Java part is downloadable via SDN. But when you write "release 4.7 system" I wonder if you think Java or ABAP.

      For the record, web services can be written and used under both legs.

      So check out that book! You just might like BSP!

    Thanks for the information.

    I think I will start by downloading WAS 6.40 and working thru the tutorials, and see where that takes me.
