Sneak Preview ABAP Edition just released

The Sneak Preview: ABAP Edition is now available. Kathy just announced it in the forum: Sneak Preview Update: ABAP Edition just released!!
The link to the Sneak Preview stays the same:
Basically this is a "slim" or "mini" ABAP installation with a compressed database component, comparable to the "slim" Java version. It's supposed to run with a minimum of 1GB but 2GB RAM is recommended.
Feedback on this edition, like the others, should go in the SDN Code Sample/Download forum (Software Downloads).

It would be really awesome to see the community weigh in on their experiences with this installation.
I'm going to suggest that we find a way to reward participants for doing a good job of sharing and documenting their experiences with the installation.
One idea would be to give a "double point" allocation.
That means that good content contribution (articles, blogs, detailed forum posts in a separate marked thread) that articulates the substance of what a downloader does in the course of the new ABAP Sneak Preview installation: tips and tricks, installation guide details, observations and detailed opinions,  will be <u>doubly rewarded</u>.
Hey, this is a very time consuming activity, as I am experiencing myself at present.

  • Sneak Preview Update: ABAP Edition just released!!

    Hello again everyone,
    I know you've all been waiting a long time for this... So, without further ado, I am very please to (finally) announce the arrival of the Sneak Preview ABAP Edition on SDN!!
    For the ABAP edition (Windows OS, that is), you need to download two big files - the ABAP installation (1.25GB) and the SAPGUI (500MB). You can find all the details and the download links on the page <a href="">Sneak Preview SAP NetWeaver 04</a>.
    The Full version is still going to take some time. I'm sorry I don't have a release date at the moment, which is why I removed the "coming soon" from the info page. Please know we're working on getting it released as soon as humanly possible.
    In the meantime, I hope you find the ABAP version worth the wait and take it for a good test drive. Let us know what you think and happy ABAP-ing!!
    Kathy Meyers, SDN
    ps. Don't be surprised if you have long download times, especially in the first few weeks after release. We expect a heavy demand for this download, which will most likely affect server performance. I apologize for the inconvenience!

    Kathleen -
    Thank you very much for giving us some good news!!!!!!!!!
    I am bit confused about the contents of the download though!!! Your announcement says it is ABAP only, but download page description says it also includes Java Engine and Developer Studio.
    So....does it mean this Web AS download package consists of both ABAP and Java Stacks with Developer Studio?
    I understand this download package is not a full edition ( does not include EP, XI, BI etc components). But is it a full Web AS (i.e., AS with both ABAP and Java Stacks).
    I would greatly appreciate your clarification.
    Thanks a lot.
    - Gopal

  • Sneak preview ABAP - Developer Key too long.

    I installed Sneak preview ABAP edition and I requested the developer key, the key I have received is of 24 digits where as the size of the screen field is 20 digits. I don't know how I can get the correct key.

  • GUI Server Process Error when installing NetWeaver 2004s Sneak Preview ABAP

    I've downloaded the SAP NetWeaver 2004s Sneak Preview ABAP and tried to install it. As adviced in the Installing guide I installed the SDK first. When starting SAPinst.bat I get pretty soon this error - what can I do to solve this problem:
    Thanks for Your help,
    SAPinst is getting started.
    Please be patient ...
    starting gui server process:
      sapinstport: 21200
      guiport    : 21212
      command    : "C:\Programme\Java\jdk1.5.0_02\bin\javaw.exe" -cp "C:/DOKUME1/MARKUS1/LOKALE1/Temp/sapinst_exe.3800.1156381700\jar\instgui.jar;C:/DOKUME1/MARKUS1/LOKALE1/Temp/sapinst_exe.3800.1156381700\jar\inqmyxml.jar" -Xmx256M -Dsun.java2d.noddraw=true SDTServer config=jar:sdtserver.xml guiport=21212 sapinsthost=localhost sapinstport=21200
    The process that should run the GUI Server could not be started.
    Please make sure that a JDK is installed on this host and that SAPINST_JRE_HOME points to the root
    directory of your Java installation. As an alternative you may start the GUI Server on another host
    (for details please consult the installation guide).
    103 controller.errorStartingGuiWindows  1580
    Exit status of child: 1

    I've stored the folders and files into root drive and installed jdk - still the same error messages.
    What strikes me:
    'command : "C:\Programme\Java\jdk1.5.0_02...'
    Why 'jdk1.5.0_02'? My installes version is 1.4.2_08!
    I don't know if my environment variables are right. I'm quite a JAVA dummy: I suppose these variables are to be set within the SDK? Which variables should I check (and how)?

  • BW reports (BEx Reports) in Sneak preview  ABAP version

    Hi All,
    Is it possible to display  the BW data in BEx reports with help of Tr code  RRMX  in Sneak preview  ABAP trail version.
    When i try to run Trcode RRMX system says <b>Please install Excel as viewer.</b>.
    Please let me know , how we can display data.

    May be your SAP GUI, BW components are not installed. Reinstall SAP GUI and select BW checkbox during installation. Also you need to have ur excel macro setting (tools->macro->security) as either low or medium.
    check this note: 160995-BEx Analyzer: Excel Add-ins interfere at the start.
    If you are in 7.0, you need to unstall your front end and reinstall the 7.0 front end.
    You may troubleshoot using below link

    Hope it helps.

  • Sneak Preview ABAP - Password for Database Manager Operator Control

    Hello All , My first installation 'SAP NetWeaver 2004s Sneak Preview ABAP' was aborted where I did supply the password for Database Manager Operator Account : Control . When I am trying to reinstall , the installation fails and it comes back with a message
    ' The check of the control user password failed . Check logfile XCMDOUT.LOG '.
    I think I am supplying the correct password which I entered originally .
    Rajesh Kapoor

    hi there,
    the default password for control is control.
    According to about threethousandfivehundredandtwelve postings in here your problem might arise due to the usage of special characters in the password, e.g. a +(plus).
    What do the last few lines of your XCMDOUT.LOG read?

  • Sneak Preview ABAP NW04s license expired

    I havenu00B4t been using the SNeak Preview ABAP 2004s system for a month. Now I want to use it again, but the license expired at Oct 17. I put the system in back date, i.e. Oct 16 to be able to connect with the system and I tried to install the new license, which I got from SAP Developer Network.
    My problem is that I am not able to install the new license. The expiration date is 20070221 because I got the new license, but when I try to install it, the system hangs and after a while I get a Dump.
    I start the system with nspadm user and I also tried with c:\usr\sap\NSP\SYS\exe\nuc\NTI386\saplicense -install, but it was impossible too.
    Please, can anybody give me an answer for this? Any suggestion?
    Thanks in advance

    I finally resolved my problem yesterday. That is the answer. I did exactly what you mention now: to try and try. I don't know what happened, but when I insisted it worked !
    Anyway, Thanks a lot to all

  • Sneak Preview Slim Edition and SLD

    I've installed the Web AS Sneak Preview Slim Edition  (corresponding to SP11) that is available at SDN. But when I tried to start the SLD accessing http://localhost:50000/sld the message "resource does not exist" appeared. The url above is definitely correct -  other administration frontends, e.g. useradmin, are reachable. Seems that SLD or at least SLD administration is not included in the slim edition. Is that true?  And if so, is there any possibility to update the missing parts?

    Gregor, thanks for your reply. As a consequence of the Sneak Preview Slim Edition limitation concerning SLD, I tried to install a Web AS 6.40 SR1 installation, downloaded from service marketplace. Things started wonderful, but eventually, in step 21 out of 22, the J2EE engine failed to start. I found this error message in startJ2e.log:
    running C:\usr\sap\J2E\JC00\exe/sapstart.exe name=J2E nr=00 SAPDIAHOST=blnn0050 -wait
    SAPSTART finished successfully on blnn0050_J2E_00, but at least one process doesn't run correctly:
    C:\usr\sap\J2E\JC00\exe/sapstart.exe=>sapparam(1c): No Profile used.
    Has anyone an idea how to overcome this failure? Which profile is missing and how to get it? Manual start using MMC does not help.

  • Update sneak preview Java Edition to SP13 or SP14?

    Has anyone updated the sneak preview Java Edition (incl. EP 6) to SP13 or 14?
    I have trouble installing SP13 (The installation of the Sneak Preview was smooth.).
    Here is what I have downloaded and did. I found 4 SP groups for EP6 on Sap services:
    - CM+Collaboration
    - IGS (where SP12 seems to be the highest version)
    - J2EE engine
    - Portal platform
    I have started with the update of the J2EE engine to SP13.
    Unfortunately it hangs at step 17 deploy online.
    Do I do something wrong here?
    Any hints are appreciated.
    Regards F.

    Hi Frank,
    I updated the WAS preview to SP13 and it was a total mess and 4 week loss of lifetime. Never tried to do it with the portal demo though.
    If the sdm hangs try the following:
    - wait 5 min, then click retry
    - if it happens again wait 5 min, then click retry
    - if it happens again wait 5 min, then click retry
    - if it happens again wait 5 min, then click retry
    (no joke)
    If this fails it will be most likely that your DB has run out of log space. The SAP system usually honors that with freezing without any apparent reason or log output. A colleague of mine has escalated this more than one week to SAP Support and event they didn't figure it out.
    Try stopping the install and the sap system. When the sdm process keeps hanging and the DB will not shut down you are 99% likely to have the log problem. Get the win mysql DB manager, login to your db (default pw: control/control) and go to configuration->log volumes. Set the log strategy to "overwrite" (on test systems) restart and it should work.

  • Sneak Preview Full Edition Availability & System Requirements

    Can anyone tell us authoratatively when the Full Edition (Java + ABAP) of the NW04 Sneak Preview will be available? And equally importantly, for planning purposes, what the minimum and recommended system requirements will be?

    In the download area you can get the Full Netweaver (ABAP + Java) for Linux. This has been available for a little while.
    Now, what you are asking is the same I've been waiting for: the Full version for Windows.
    I had expectations that it would be far down the road, but since the version ABAP was released today, I feel like we may get it soon.
    I suggest you keep watching the forums and visiting SDN regularly (like me). An estimate release date will come out sometime soon.
