Hi Rajendra,

The NetWeaver Installation Master Guide offers some good scenarios on the pros and cons:

In a nutshell:

ABAP+JAVA

Pros

- Decrease # of servers required to administer the portal

- Less costly

Cons

- Upgrades could be dependent on ABAP and Java release level

- Additional load on the server due to ABAP stack

- Limited scalability

JAVA and ABAP on separate server

Pros

- Improved performance

- Allows each system to be single-use purpose therefore downtime does not affect other components

- More scalable

Cons

- Adds complexity to landscape

- Additional costs

Thomas Pham
