How to Setup an NWDI Track for Composition Environment Development 

This guide describes how to setup an NWDI track to develop new composite applications for the SAP NetWeaver Composition Environment (CE) platform. The existing SAP NetWeaver Development Infrastructure release on NW2004s can be used to develop applications for the new Composition Environment platform as well. This guide will focuses on what you need to set up new software components for development with CE and their dependencies, and also specifics within the track configuration.

How-to Guide: The Migration Plug-in for SAP NetWeaver 7.1 Composition Environment 

SAP Solution Architect Markus Küfer describes how to migrate third-party projects to the Eclipse-based SAP NetWeaver Developer Studio for CE using the migration plug-in (ZIP 101 KB). An associated sample application and screencam demonstrate how to use the tool and show the basic steps for migrating J2EE-compliant applications to SAP NetWeaver CE.

SAP NetWeaver CE Sample Application Description - Customer Service Care 

This documentation provides information about the SAP NetWeaver CE sample application Customer Service Care (CSC). This scenario shows the concepts and benefits of the Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) with the help of a practical example. It explains the installation, configuration and use of the Customer Service Care scenario.

SAP NetWeaver CE Customer Service Care Sample Application 

Download here the files for deploying the Customer Service Care scenario that runs on SAP NetWeaver Composition Environment 7.1 SR3 (SP4 & SP5). This scenario demonstrates the end-to-end development of a composite application from scratch. It reuses back-end services and data, at the same time adding its own business logic to flexibly implement a specific business process. The application shows how you can easily enhance the collaborative workflow by adding offline form-based steps and involving additional contributors. In the documentation (link above) you can find a basic overview of the example applications and instructions how to configure and run the application. The offline part based on interactive forms by Adobe cannot be executed by the evaluation version.

SAP NetWeaver CE Sample Application Description - Project and Skill Management 

This tutorial describes the SAP NetWeaver CE sample application Project and Skill Management (xEDM). It's in PDF format and explains the installation, configuration and use of the xEDM sample application.

SAP NetWeaver CE Project and Skill Management Sample Application

Get here the material for deploying the Project Skill and Management scenario, it runs on SAP NetWeaver Composition Environment 7.1 SR3 (SP4 & SP5). The scenario shows how to design a composite process on top of a Java EE application. The Project and Skill Management scenario allows a manager to search for a project by various criteria, then the system defines the missing skills, the manager chooses an event from the available courses, and assigns an employee to join. After logging on to the system, the employee books an event from the available courses. Finally the team manager approves/rejects the training, registers the training, and the employee is notified by e-mail.

Composite Application Architecture: Introduction and Basic Overview 

This guide from SAP NetWeaver Composition Environment Product Management provides guidelines for the architecture of composite applications. (This document is valid for CE 7.1 and EHP1.)

Guidelines for Specifying Composite Applications

This paper describes a methodology and provides a set of forms that can be used to specify composite applications that can be built with SAP's composite toolset. (This document is valid for CE 7.1 and EHP1.)

Part I: Concepts and Development Scenarios 

This is the first part of an article series that describes how to develop applications for the SAP NetWeaver platform according to SAP's component model using DI services like development configurations and development components without the neccessity of any server installation. The first part explains what your options are when you want to produce software using SAP NetWeaver CE 7.1 including prerequisites and benefits of the various approaches. (This document is valid for CE 7.1 and EHP1.)

Part II: Local Development Configurations 

This second part concentrates on the fastest way to CE development using local development confgurations in the scenario "Component-Based Development with Optional Development Infrastructure". (This document is valid for CE 7.1 and EHP1.)
