The SAP NetWeaver Developer Studio introduces SAP's own environment for developing Java-based, multiple-layered business applications.
By offering a single point of entry for all Java development tools and an integration point for all SAP infrastructure components, the SAP NetWeaver Developer Studio (subsequently abbreviated to Developer Studio) supports you in composing and developing applications. Moreover, it is based on a defined software logistics process. Application developers do not need to switch between different development environments for the presentation and business logic. Instead, they can develop, build, deploy, and execute applications centrally from the Developer Studio.
The SAP NetWeaver Developer Studio offers full support when you develop large-scale Java projects, irrespective of whether you use SAP technologies, like Web Dynpro and Java Dictionary, or standard technologies, like Java SE, Java EE and XML.
The Developer Studio is based on Eclipse 3.4, an open source product, whose open architecture provides a suitable platform for incorporating specific functions. The Developer Studio integrates a wider range of functions, available using the plug-ins in the existing platform. The Developer Studio implicitly includes all the standard components and features of the Eclipse Workbench. It extends them with a range of tools and utilities bundled in the appropriate SAP perspectives for the task at hand.
