SAP Enhancement Packages for SAP NetWeaver 7.0
Enhancement packages for SAP NetWeaver 7.0 provide new innovative functionality on top of an existing SAP NetWeaver 7.0 implementation.
You may install an enhancement package for SAP NetWeaver 7.0 optionally. Customers can either stay with the existing core functionality of their SAP NetWeaver 7.0 implementation and apply the regular support package stacks (SPSs) that contain patches but no new features - or they can add an enhancement package to their SAP NetWeaver 7.0 landscape and benefit from the new functionality contained in it.
The patches of the core delivery line will also be contained in the enhancement package delivery line so that customers who opt for an enhancement package can maintain their system easily. The maintenance period for an enhancement package for SAP NetWeaver follows the maintenance strategy of the underlying SAP NetWeaver main release. Enhancement packages for SAP NetWeaver do not per se have separate license terms, but they do follow the respective license terms of SAP NetWeaver. Therefore, certain of the contained capabilities might require extra licenses. Customers are kindly asked to contact an SAP representative for further information.
