SAP NetWeaver Gateway 2.0 SP4 – demo system

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
Once you download the gateway archive file you should be able to find a README document with complete installation instructions



  • 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.
