ANN: SAP GUI for Java 7.40 rev 5 available for download

Hi all,

SAP GUI for Java 7.40 rev 5 is now available for download.

Enhancements and New Features

  • Support for New OS Versions:
    • OS X 10.11 (El Capitan)
  • Blue Chrystal Theme:
    • The background colors of tabstrip and other containers have been changed to better visualize the grouping of the screen.
  • Input History:
    • The values of the history list are now sorted by "last used". (Due to technical reasons, this is limited only to values used while running this new version.)


  • Blue Chrystal Theme:
    • DropDown ListBoxes with highlight property set have been displayed using wrong colors.
  • Corbu Theme:
    • There has been an issue with the disabled state of the "new session" icon in the toolbar in 7.40 rev 4. This caused broken logon screen for back-ends supporting the "new session" button when not using SNC. This also affected Signature Design or High Contrast theme, in case the "Use Corbu-style icons" option was active.
  • Signature Design:
    • When using a non-default scheme, several components did not adjust their colors appropriately.
    • The toolbar in modal dialogs has been rendered incorrectly.
  • DataProvider:
    • Downloading files with mass data including encoded characters in their file name did not work properly. Function module GUI_DOWNLOAD was affected.
  • Scripting:
    • Pressing a toggle button in the toolbar control by scripting did not work.

For details please refer to the manual (chapter "6.2 Release Notes and System Requirements" and "2. Installation") of the PlatinManual and SAP note 2059424.

Please use Java 8 Update 40 or newer, because some known issues related to the Html control component have been addressed.

Planning information

SAP GUI for Java 7.30 is no longer supported. Therefore please upgrade to SAP GUI for Java 7.40.
