Update: The beta program has ended with the availability of the final version.


Hello SAP GUI for Java users,

It is time for a new major release of SAP GUI for Java (for details see here).

Besides changing Java 11 from optional to mandatory, the most relevant new features of SAP GUI for Java 7.70 are the new Fiori-based themes.

We would like to offer a beta program for early adopters in order to let you get an impression on the new release before it is officially shipped, to receive feedback and to get into a dialog with some of you. We are particularly interested in feedback using the new themes.

If you are interested in participating in the beta program you can apply for registration by creating a support message now. The message should be created on component BC-FES-JAV with the title “7.70 beta program” and you should provide

  • a contact person for the beta program with name, email address and S-User ID

  • the client OS intended to be used (in case of Linux, please specify the distribution)

  • information about which of the features mentioned in the other post you are particularly interested in

This data will exclusively be used for organising the beta program.

Please note that the number of participants is limited and thus only customers who can and will actively participate in the program should register.

Once you are chosen, you will need to sign online a test and evaluation agreement before getting access to download the beta version of SAP GUI for Java 7.70.

The first beta version is planned to be available last week of November 2020.

Best regards,

Rolf-Martin Wörsinger
