LiveCycle Designer included in NWDS 7.0?

Colleagues of mine who never used NWDS before and just installed NWDS 7.0 SP09 find they do not have Adobe LiveCycle Designer as part of the installation. I also just installed NWDS 7.0 SP09, but I had many older versions of NWDS and still have the Designer.

If I remember correctly, the Designer was included (at least as an install option) in older versions of NWDS? Is it not included now? If not, where can we get it? -- A search on "Designer" and on "Adobe" on service.sap.com/installations returns nothing.

Thanks Dezso. I realized I was not logging on to service marketplace with an adequately privileged id.

Any idea why the Designer is no longer included with the NWDS install?

Hi,

The designer isn't included anymore, so Adobe isn't dependent of the SP strategy of SAP.

Hope it helps.

Kind regards,

Maarten.

This statement is partly correct. We took it out to ensure a certain degree of SP independence, but at the same time SAP and Adobe fix bugs and add enhancements both in the Adobe components and on the SAP side, which are SP-dependent. One example: After SAP NetWeaver SPS 18, you need to use Designer 7.1 due to further developments that weren't made to Designer 7.0 or in a lower SAP SP.

Best
