Difference between NetWeaver 2004 and NetWeaver 2005?

Although SAP is mentioning it in several presentations, no specific information is (public) available on NetWeaver 2005.

We are looking for arguments to wait with our strategy to switch to NetWeaver 2005, but this means that we have to wait to the beginning of 2006 (at least then we expect it to be GA).

Can anybody tell me if there is information on NetWeaver 2005 available, and if so, where I can get it?

    Hi Jacques,

    Technically there is no release called "NetWeaver 2005". As far as I know there is no public information on the next release what ever it is called. I would expect the first information to come out around the Sapphire event. In the states that is the week of May 16th.

    Is there a reason you are thinking about waiting? You can go ahead with the current version and upgrade when the time come.

      The reason we are waiting is that we expect a seriously changed architecture. Currently, NetWeaver has only WAS 6.40 as the common component. All applications - in particular OLTP - is still connected using plug-in's.

      We have heard that this will change in later releases of NetWeaver where XI will be the plug-in layer.

      Also the ESA will be much more mature. But this is only what we have heard.

      Up to now, there has not been an official document from SAP that can confirm this.

      Oh, and John, NetWeaver 2005 was mentioned during the TechEd 2004 in Munich.
