NWDS -> Check for Updates? On Patch or SP Level?
In NWDS menu -> Help -> Check for Updates one can if there is a new Software Update for the NWDS.
What kind of updates does it check/load? Is the check on PATch Level only?
Reason why I ask:
Check for Update says "Nothting to update"
Version of installad NWDS is:
SAP Enhancement Package 1 for SAP NetWeaver Developer Studio 7.3 SP08 PAT0002
(According to Help -> About Sap Netweaver Developer Studio)
When I go to https://nwds.sap.com/swdc/downloads/updates/netweaver/nwds/nw/731/doc/update.html -> Updating Developer Studio -> SAP NetWeaver 7.1 SP3 and higher -> New Installation there newer Version:
Good News! Update (at least on patch level) works within eclipse.
I gave it another try with PAT1 for 8.31.100000.131016093512SP10.
Before, I set the http and https configuration in the network settings preferences of eclipse to our internal proxy and provided authentiation information. After that to check if the update site is reachable one can test in the "available software sites" eclipse preferences the connection to the nwds update site. It did last a while until it succeeded, but it did.
Afterwards the "Check for updates" did start the p2 update wizard and showed that PAT1 is available...
