Hi all,

with Java 6, the Java version SAP GUI for Java 7.20 is based on, approaching end of support, it is time for a new major release of SAP GUI for Java.

Besides using Java 7, SAP GUI for Java 7.30 will support various new OS versions and Linux distributions, comes with new themes, employs the Java Security Model and includes various new features.

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.

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 "7.30 beta program" and you should provide

  • a contact person for the beta program with name, email address and S-User ID
  • client OS intended to be used (in case of Linux, please specify the distribution)

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

You will need to sign a test and evaluation agreement before getting registered.

If you are registered you will be supplied with a beta version of SAP GUI for Java 7.30 in late October 2012. Please note that the number of participants is limited and thus only customers who can and will actively participate in the program should register.
