SAP NetWeaver Achieves Java EE 5 Compatibility

September 29, 2006; 07:53 AM

Driving strong support for Java standards, extending open standards and simplifying application development, SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) today announced it has achieved Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE) 5 compatibility. SAP NetWeaver® has been providing complete support for Java technology since 2003. Achieving compatibility means SAP customers and partners can develop robust Java applications on the SAP NetWeaver platform using the latest mature technology standards -- simplifying and accelerating application development projects. A preview of SAP's Java EE 5 implementation is available for download on SAP Developer Network at www.sdn.sap.com.

Java EE 5 represents a significant step forward to simplify the Enterprise Java programming model. The design goals of Java EE were to streamline features and convenience to the platform, thereby improving performance and reducing development time. For SAP customers and partners developing applications on the SAP NetWeaver platform, compatibility of SAP NetWeaver Application Server with Java EE 5 will enable them to measurably speed time to market with enterprise service-orientated architecture (enterprise SOA) based applications and reduce overall total cost of ownership (TCO). It also provides out-of-the-box connectivity to all SAP systems.

"SAP's achievement to become compatible with Java EE 5 is further evidence of our commitment to drive open standards and ease customer and partner application development on SAP NetWeaver," said Klaus Kreplin, executive vice president, SAP NetWeaver, SAP. "No other company has put the same level of aggressiveness behind becoming compatible to further open its platform to Java developers. SAP is at the forefront of adopting standards as the standards mature. Customers are developing applications today with full confidence that they adhere to the latest standards."
