I’ve been trying to install the SP4 version of SAP Gateway for a few days. Originally I’ve tried utilizing the trial package for Linux [can be found here]. Unfortunately every time I’ve downloaded the Gateway package the file was corrupted [the MD5 didn’t match & internal archives were corrupted].
Moving forward I’ve found an alternative source for the demo system [unfortunately I can no longer find this link – the only two version that I see available are for Hyper-V Windows features & for the Linux box].
I’ve installed the system using:
- vmware player
- trial version of Microsoft 2008 R2 Server
- SAP Gateway SP4
- 2GB of RAM minimum
- 64bit CPU
- I’ve used 70GB of HD and had about 5GB of free space left after the installation
- Swap virtual memory 20GB
I mainly wanted to find out the functionality of being able to support JSON. I was happy to discover that the new service pack provides a feature of a simple format conversion to JSON by passing the
parameter as part of the URL string.
