    Please also note that Data Services 3.2 will reach end of life for technical support at the end of this year. So going to Data services 4.0 would be the most valuable use of your time. Data Services 4.0 does require BOE 4.0 (see release notes/documentation for the correct versions). It also requires 64-bit operating system. Refer to the supported platforms guide for more information as well as the documentation on the site > SAP BusinessObjects > All Products > English > Then Choose Data Services in the first drop down and the 4.0 docs in the second drop down.

    Data Services version 3.1 has reached end-of-life and is not supported by SAP anymore.

    Data Services latest version is 4.0. There are differences from 3.2 to 4.0 concerning security features because of its integration with BOE, and integration with SAP applications.

    Both versions can deploy during installation the Tomcat as a web application server. But you can choose different server types, such as JBoss, WebLogic, WebSphere among others.
