Deployment on SAP NetWeaver Application Server J2EE Engine (J2EE-DEP and J2EE-STD)[1]

The J2EE-DEP and J2EE-STD integration scenario will no longer be available for certification. Existing certifications will remain valid until they expire after 3 years. Please contact SAP ICC for more information.

During the certification of the deployment via J2EE-DEP, SAP verifies that J2EE Specification compliant applications from independent software vendors can be deployed and run on the J2EE Engine of SAP NetWeaver Application Server - itself a fully J2EE compliant web application server.

Deployment is regarded as the process of installing a J2EE application in the form of an EAR file (Enterprise Application Archive file) on SAP NetWeaver AS following the SAP NetWeaver AS deployment guidelines. The successful deployment of the EAR file using the SAP provided deployment and management tools, followed by a functional test of the application itself, leads to SAP integration certification.

For certification purposes, the ICC will provide interested vendors with the standalone SAP NetWeaver AS J2EE Engine. For more information, contact your regional Integration and Certification Center.

Note: For a list of already certified integrations for this integration scenario please visit the SAP Application Development partner directory and use the search functions in the tab "solution

Getting Started

The SAP Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) highly recommends that ISVs and partners, who are interested in certifying an integration of their product with SAP solutions, begin with our page Getting Started with Integration and Certification that explains the SAP ICC services and describes the process how to obtain them. This page helps you select the correct integration scenario and contains technical information, streaming media presentations, step-by-step guides, and much more.

  • How to identify the appropriate certification? Please read this article which covers the differences between our two tier J2EE / EE 5 certification offerings (J2EE-DEP 7.0 / J2EE - STD 7.0 and JAVA-EE-ADV 7.1 / JAVA-EE-STD 7.1)

Technical Documentation

SAP NetWeaver Application Server 7.0 (2004s) - SAP Solution Manager (SolMan) ready!

SAP NetWeaver 7.0 provides an open integration and application platform and facilitates the implementation of the Enterprise Services Architecture. A new J2EE certification (J2EE-STD) in addition to the existing J2EE-DEP certification is now available. Even for products that have been certified for J2EE-DEP on earlier versions, re-certification on SAP NetWeaver Application Server 7.0 (2004s) is recommended. The certification offering based on SAP NetWeaver 7.0 has now two certification scenarios.

For a quick overview, what is it, how do you do it, how did other software vendors do it, please click on the following link:

  • J2EE-STD 7.0 is a certification verifying basic criteria such as the correct installation / deployment of the EAR file when converted to an SCA file using SAP deployment tools.
  • J2EE-DEP 7.0 is a certification that takes into account special capabilities of the SAP NetWeaver J2EE engine in addition to what is already contained within the J2EE-STD 7.0 certification scenario.

For a documentation overview, refer to the J2EE-DEP 7.0 Deployment Certification Documentation and Test Catalog below:

See also two examples, how two software vendors did it.

In addition to the technical interface specifications, please also refer to the applicable SAP Solution Manager Ready integration criteri.

Test System Recommendation from SAP ICC

SAP RAC Service:

The quickest way to gain access to an SAP system suitable for integration testing is via the SAP Remote Access and Connectivity Service (SAP RAC), which provides access to shared and exclusive-use hosted test systems.

Description about available test system options:
Read SAP ICC consultant Martin Vierling's blog about Integrating to SAP Solutions - Test System Opportunities for independent Software Vendors, where you can find the options of hosted SAP Test Systems and recommendations, if the hosted test system option is suitable for your certification.
