Business Benefits – Web Application Development
SAP NetWeaver provides a range of tools for developing, testing, customizing, and documenting enhancements to your SAP solutions.
The SAP NetWeaver development infrastructure supports versioning and transport, internationalization, user interface abstraction, and persistence models in the design, development, testing, and deployment of distributed solution landscapes.
The development infrastructure includes ABAP Workbench, which allows users to develop, modify, and manage applications written in ABAP. ABAP Workbench provides a robust, integrated environment for developing business applications in ABAP.
For Java development, SAP NetWeaver builds additional tools on top of the open source framework Eclipse platform. This includes a core open-source-based integrated development environment (IDE), which offers tools such as editors and compilers combined with additional business application development tools, including design- and run-time repositories and an automated build service.
SAP NetWeaver development capabilities include device-independent user interface abstraction, automated deployment, and interactive support for software updates in heterogeneous IT environments. In addition, SAP NetWeaver supports component-based development, including repositories that enable versioning and team development. An automated build service eases the deployment of Java archives in heterogeneous environments.
