Difference WAS 6.3 and 6.4

Hi,

We are in the middle of planning a project for converting our existing ITS application towards a SAP WebAS Webdynpro application.

In that respect I am curious to learn what the main differences are between release 6.3 and 6.4?

We also understood that release 6.3 is only available for ramp-up customers (but the sign-in process is being ended already) and that release 6.4 will only ramp-up as of december ...

We plan to go live end december so basically we have an issue here ... what is the "fastest"(non-official) way to become a) a 6.3 rampup or b) get the 6.4 software ...

Thx,

Steven

Hi Steven,

from the Java point of view, 6.30 is more or less the same as 6.40. Only difference is the so-called Java Development Infrastructure, which consists of Design Time Repository, Build Service and Change Management Services.

6.30 comes with a J2EE 1.3 compliant app server plus full-blown eclipse-based Java IDE plus Web Dynpro and a comprehensive persistency toolset.

6.30 SP3 brings you automatically to 6.40 (except JDI which requires a separat ramp-up).

To participate in 6.30 ramp-up just send a mail to stephan@sap.com.

Cheers,

Daniel

Hi Daniel;

Thanks for the info ...

The official SAP canals are already in action to get us signed up as a 6.3 ramp-up (which suddently still seemed to be possible ) - thx for the offering

Will 6.4 be based on J2EE 1.4 or 1.3 ?

Bye,

Hi Steven,

6.40 will be still J2EE 1.4, you will be able to use jdk 1.4 however. For the next major release we are shooting for J2EE 1.4.
