SAP NetWeaver is a comprehensive integration and application platform, that works with your existing IT infrastructure to enable and manage change. With SAP NetWeaver, you can flexibly and rapidly design, build, implement, and execute new business strategies and processes.

The platform is based on industry standards and can be extended with commonly used development tools such as Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE); Microsoft .NET; and IBM WebSphere.

You can use any editor for Java development. However, if you want to doe SAP/NetWeaver development, you should use Netweaver Developer Studio as you Java development platform.

If you have access to SDN I think you can download it from there, no need to buy. So development is free.

You do need an application server to deploy your Java code. If there is none available, you can install one locally (on your PC) but you need a lot of RAM in order to work normally.
