How are you meant to set up a test system?
I want a configuration where I can test writing Java applications that interact with SAP.
Hovever, all the trails and downloads that I pick from the SDN either appear to be missing or error in some way! It's not very impressive;
SAP NetWeaver 7.0 - Java Trial Version on Linux - VMware Edition
Unfortunately there was a technical issue completing your download request. Please try again later.
Technology Preview SAP NetWeaver 04 - SAP Web Application Server on Linux and MaxDB
There is no version of the SAP on Linux Test Drive available for download. Please order it from the SAP Knowledge Shop: http://www.sap.com/shop -> SAP Knowledge Shop and search for the following material numbers: SAP NW2004s Testdrive MaxDB : 50077574 SAP NW04s Testdrive Linux DB2 x86 : 50083014
Searching for that, as suggested, in the Shop then gives this error in the Shop;
Application Error An internal application error occurred. The ordering process could not be completed. Choose Contact us, and use the data below to create a problem message. S-User S0000000000 Server Date 2011-04-22 Server Time 12:01:42
It is starting to get comic now 😉
Surely, it should be pretty simply to get a demo/trial version that works on Linux, for evaluating Java development with sap?
