Sneak Preview NetWeaver 04 now available!! -  now REALLY available

I'm pleased to announce that the new Sneak Preview NetWeaver 04 is now available to download on SDN! The sneak preview will be available in four different editions. The first two editions focusing on Java development tools are available now. They are called, conveniently enough, "Java Edition" and "Slim Edition" (slim, as in smaller package with less memory consumption and a few less features).
Java version is back online, sorry for the inconvenience! **
Two more editions will be added to the Sneak Preview in the coming weeks, also conveniently named "ABAP Edition" for the ABAP development environment and the big "Full Edition" with additional SAP NetWeaver components to evaluate.
So, need I say more? Why not check out the Sneak Preview yourself and try your hand at developing applications with SAP NetWeaver. Read these details before you decide which one you'd like to try (make sure you're logged in!): software/sneak preview netweaver 04.htm
While you're doing all this, let us know what you think! Join a discussion in this forum or start your own discussions, post questions, help others with their questions if you can. Your feedback on this sneak preview will help improve the quality of the final product!
Thanks for reading - now go download!

Could be one of a few things.
1. We had to take the "Java" edition offline temporarily. It should be back up later today. IF you tried to access it, this might be why you cannot download.
2. If you are having a general problem accessing our FTP server for downloads, perhaps you can check whether your (company) firewall allows FTP access. If it does not, perhaps you can see whether you can change your firewall to allow for the domain. See: Can't download, Company firewall accept NO FTP access
3. Also, during times of high traffic, it may be difficult to download the larger files we offer as the FTP server has a limit to number of parallel sesions. You might try to download during a different time of day.
If none of these apply, please explain in more detail why you cannot download.

  • Error while installing Sneak preview Netweaver 2004 --SP15 on WindowsXP+SP1

    hi, i'm getting a error while installing the Sneak preview NetWeaver 2004-SP15 on Windows XP + SP1.
    error message: Corrupt GZip trailer
    JDK version: 1.4.2_08 and 1.4.2_09
    i searched this error on google and i found it's a bug of jdk1.4.2_08.(see this page:<a href=""></a>) it said this version can't run when the uncompressed file is 2GB or larger. and this bug was fixed after <b>jdk1.5</b>. but i noted that Sneak preview was not tested on jdk1.5.Ignore it, i uninstalled jdk1.4.2_08 and Sneak preview,then i installed jdk1.5 and reinstalled Sneak preview.Unfortunated, i got another error.The error code is <b>3018</b>.

    I also tried jdk1.4.2_08 and I also installed in Windows2000+SP4. But I faced the same problem too.
    From, I know this error is a bug of jdk. They explained that this version can't run OK
    when zip-file is larger than 2G. Then I found here's a file
    (name is 'NW04SneakPreviewSP15NWSneakPreviewSP15SneakPreviewContentSDMSDMKIT.JAR'). It's size
    is 2.08G. I suppose installation can't manage it.
    I tried unzip this file and renamed unziped folder to 'SDMKIT.JAR'.
    Then I found another large file in the unziped folder(name is 'F:NW04SneakPreviewSP15NWSneakPreviewSP15SneakPreviewContentSDMSDMKIT.JARpackpackedRoot.jar')
    , so I also unzip this file and renamed unziped folder to 'packedRoot.jar'.
    Then I reinstalled, of course, It's no work.
    Unexpectedly, I found this download link is not available on the this page:
    It say that 'We apologize that this version is currently not available to download.'.
    I guess there are any problem in this version, are there?
    So, now I think I must download another version to install.

  • Sneak Preview NetWeaver  04 SP16 Install with SQL Server 2000

    Sneak Preview NetWeaver 04 SP16 Installation instruction refer to MaxDB Database Manager and SQL Studio.
    Is it possible to use  MS SQL Server 2000 Enterprise instead? What is the installation procedure?

    no. You need a different installer for that.
    If you have access to offcial Netweaver DVDs - ther is an SQL Server version.

  • 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.

  • New Sneak Preview Downloads?

    Today i navigated to the SDN Downloads page and noticed that the Sneak Preview Full Edition is now available in two parts. Earlier the downloads were available in four parts.
    I have already installed the Sneak Preview which was available as four part download.
    What i wanted whether there are any changes in the two part download or its just that everything has been clubbed.
    Please do let me know.

    everything clubbed and this is SP16 and the one you have donwloaded earlier is SP15.

  • Integrated planning in sneak preview of java and abap versions of nw 2004s

    Hello all,
    I installed both AS ABAP and AS JAVA of the sneak preview netweaver 2004s,but unable to run integrated planning.I searched the forum and sap notes but did not find specific required steps to configure.Anyone able to run integrated planning of the preview versions ? does it involve extensive configuration ? Could someone post the necessary steps to configure.I checked the SLD and it is running but did not have any 'technical systems' configured.I created a technical system for ABAP and JAVA manually myself.The jco destinations still shows 'No SLD connection' with a red button beside it.
    Then I went to visual administrator and checked SLD data supplier service.It looks like it is lot of BASIS work to configure this.Please let me know if someone has simple steps to configure and run integrated planning just after installing sneakpreview versions of nw 2004s ABAP and JAVA.

    Hi Steffen,
    all you need for this type of communication is already included in the WAS. There's a lot of documentation available:
    JCO (Java Connector for ABAP backends):
    Generating proxies "around" JCO (very useful feature of the developer studio):
    Using ABAP EIS in a transactional J2EE environment via J2EE connector architecture:
    This should be sufficient for the beginning
    Hope that helps.
    Best regards

  • Where can I download sneak preview portal 7?

    This might be something you are looking for.

  • Sneak Preview Slim Edition

    Does this edition contain Enterprise portal ,KM and Coll.Please reply.Thanks.

    Hi Pankaj,
    The Slim edition does not contain EP, KM & Collaboration. It contains the SAP Web AS and NetWeaver Developer Studio and is really - as it's name implies - kind of a NetWeaver "lite" version with much smaller download file and less memory consumption.
    However, the Java edition contains these additional components you mentione - and, I'm happy to report, it's back online again!
    Check it out with this link (make sure you're logged in): software/sneak preview netweaver 04.htm

  • Sneak Preview Update: Full Java Edition is now available on NW04 SP15

    Hi SDNers,
    Here's something that might make your new year more interesting... We just released the SP15 version of the <a href="">sneak Preview SAP NetWeaver: Full Java Edition</a> on SDN.
    This version - like its SP11 predecessor - includes the following components:
    - SAP NetWeaver Application Server (Java)
    - SAP NetWeaver Developer Studio
    - SAP Enterprise Portal
    - SAP Knowledge Management
    - SAP Composite Application Framework including Guided Procedures
    - Interactive Forms based on Adobe Software
    Note: We've updated the system requirements and installation instructions, so please take the time to read through the information carefully.
    You'll need to download 4 rather large files with this release (total approx. 5GB), so your patience is required! Especially in the beginning when everyone is trying to download at the same time, expect that the server performance will suffer. You might try downloading at off-peak hours to avoid the rush.
    Please post your questions and comments about the Full Java Edition in this discussion forum and we'll try to get you an answer as soon as possible.
    Enjoy and Happy New Year!

  • 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.
