    Welcom to Basis !

    SAP NetWeaver is SAP's integrated technology computing platform and is the technical foundation for many SAP applications since the SAP Business Suite. SAP NetWeaver is marketed as a service-oriented application and integration platform. SAP NetWeaver provides the development and runtime environment for SAP applications and can be used for custom development and integration with other applications and systems. SAP NetWeaver is built using primarily the ABAP programming language, but also uses C (programming language), C++, and Java EE. It also employs open standards and industry de facto standards and can be extended with, and interoperate with, technologies such as Microsoft .NET, Java EE, and IBM WebSphere.

    To know the about the SAP ECC verion or components installed goto: Easy Access menu->check tab System ->Status ->then check the SAP system data field click the "component info" .

    To check the SAP kernel release goto : SM51 -> Click the "Release Notes " button to see the SAP Kernel Release info.and patch number .

    SAP netweaver portal version info check the portal link : http://<hostname_of_JavaEE_Engine_Server>:5<Instance_Number>00/irj/portal/index.html
