And don't use Web Dynpro for Java because the tools have way too many bugs besides all the limitations imposed by this proprietary technology.

Hi Madan,

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

<b>SAP NetWeaver</b> unifies integration technologies into a single platform and is preintegrated with business applications, reducing the need for custom integration. The platform is based on industry standards and can be extended with commonly used development tools such as <b>Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE</b>); Microsoft .NET; and IBM WebSphere.

As of <b>SAP NetWeaver 04</b>, ITS is now available that is being integrated into the <b>SAP NetWeaver component</b> <b>SAP Web Application Server 6.40</b> as an Internet Communication Framework (ICF) service, which can, like other services, be accessed through the Internet Communication Manager (ICM). With the ITS integrated in the SAP Web Application Server, the web browser now communicates directly with the SAP System.

<b>J2EE and Java</b> are generally accepted as the standard Web programming technologies. <b>SAP Web Application Server has both an ABAP and a J2EE personality</b>, supporting both programming environments in a common, integrated infrastructure.

Hope this helps.

Madan , u have to patiently go through these helps..

Frankly speaking , if u are a beginner ,it will take some time .. thats common for all.. never mind...

Madan ,

Most of the components in NetWeaver Technology is using Java Runtime .

As J2EE technology is a open technology , and its is too easy for J2EE applications to access through Web.

So if u have a java background , it will more easy to understand the concepts and application developments in NetWeaver platform..

All components in NetWeaver technology have its own use .Not so easy to become an expert in all. My opinion is ,if u have Java and ABAP experience , then start from Application Platform and Enterprise Portal First...

On the way u will get why i suggetst like this....

Let me know u have doubts..may be i can help u..
