SAP GUI for Mac OS X 10.4

I want to upgrade my Macs to Apples current operating system Mac OS X 10.4.1 Tiger. I had read few weeks ago, the JAVA-Implementation doesn't work with any SAP GUI for Java. SAP has recommended, to still work with Mac OS X 10.3.9 and SAP GUI for Java 6.30 Revision 8.

When will be available a working SAP GUI for Mac OS X 10.4.1 Tiger ? Has someone informations ?

    Hello,

    http://service.sap.com/sapgui-java recently has been updated with the latest progress.

    Good news is, Apple finally has fixed those bugs in JRE 1.4.2, which prevented us to make the Mac version of SAP GUI for Java 6.40 available. The bad news is, there is no information communicated by Apple, when the Java update will be available.

    It is planned to provide SAP GUI for Java 6.40 to run on Mac OS X 10.4 when Apple has made that Java update available.

    Best regards

      Rolf-Martin,

      Could you assist me with a SAP GUI issue I have encountered this past week? I have PowerPC G4 550 Mhz PowerBook running MAC OS X 10.3.9 with 1GB of SDRAM. I use the SAPGUI 6.20rev8 verison and have received ABAP dumps indicating I have an outdated SAPGUI. I see that there is a 6.30rev8 version, which I have do loaded. I have read the manual but cannot find a solution for my issue.

      I have installed the package and note my 6.20rev8 connection were imported.

      Example: conn=/M/172.19.1.57/S/3600/G/SPACE&clnt=100&user=DWesley&expert=true

      I have not deleted the 6.20rev8 version since I am unable to get the 6.30rev8 version to work.

      When I execute the logon, the system tries to connect, but shutsdown and shows an apple bug message "The application SAPGUI has unexpectedly quit"

      When I look at the log I see:

      Exception: EXC_BAD_ACCESS (0x0001)

      Codes: KERN_PROTECTION_FAILURE (0x0002) at 0x00000000

      Could you assist me in the setup of the 6.30rev8 version.

    Rolf-Martin,

    Could you make the SAP GUI for Java 6.40 for Mac available as a preliminary, unsupported release for those of us who are already on Mac OS 10.4.2 and have the latest developer pre-release of Java 1.4.2 Release 2? At this point I'm using the 6.30 rev 4 release of the Java GUI in unsupported mode, so support is not an issue. Thanks for considering this.

    Rob

    Considering that we have been waiting for months now, I'd actually rather have a "developer" version of the 6.40GUI instead of having to wait another couple of months until somebody eventually does something at either APPLE or SAP. I don't know why this is taking so long. The JAVA stack can't be that far off the mark, can it? Everything else seems to be working rather fine on it. It is not just done by saying that we shouldn't upgrade to 10.4. It's not that the world is standing still just because of a missing SAP GUI. I had to upgarde to 10.4 to keep up with my customers and a missing SAP GUI is hurting me to the point that I have to use a windows laptop :-((((((((((

    Give us a preview version, please!!!
