Which Developer Studio version?

Our company is starting to evaluate using the NetWeaver technologies (Developer Studio, Web AS, etc.) for development and we're currently at a loss as to what version we should be using and where to get the current version.

We're planning on using Web AS 6.40, if possible. We currently have a NetWeaver Developer Studio DVD that shipped with Developer Studio 2.0.4, which seems to be fairly old. We have a few questions:

1. What version of Developer Studio is current, and where can we download it? I've seen some installers on the Service Marketplace, but no full package.

2. What is the recommended DB? We have tried using MaxDB off of the DVD, but there are packages that reference MS SQL Server as well.

3. What is the procedure for patching the local development environment? I'm unsure what Web AS and NWDS patches I need to get to the correct version. At one point we found a SP7 patch for NWDS, but this left us unable to run what we developed as the "Deploy and Run" command errored out.

It's wishful thinking, but it'd be nice if there was a clear upgrade path for local development. We'd like the ability to install a base system with a clear upgrade path.

    Version 2.09 is now the most reason. The updates can be found at

    The donwloads are rather huge, certainly after you've 'unsarred' the files.
