Components of SAP Gateway

I introduced SAP Gateway solution in my blog post here where I discussed installation of trial Gateway system. The SAP Gateway system is a framework deployable into ABAP Stack of NetWeaver where development of OData services is possible. Former mane of the SAP Gateway is SAP NetWeaver Gateway. It was renamed as per simplification initiative SAP is currently running.

I recently had a chance to work on the Gateway which was based on ABAP AS 74. I notice here that components related to the Gateway installed there were a bit different from other NetWeaver systems in particular those with versions below 74.

The difference was that were no components like GW_CORE, IW_FND and IW_BEP. Instead there was just one component called: SAP_GWFND. The newest current release of the Gateway is: SAP Gateway 2.0 Support Package Stack 09 740  0009          SAPK -74009INSAPGWFND. This basically means that SAP_GWFND in NW 74 contains all components which were delivered separately in lower NW releases.

Below I introduce what all the different components means:

SAP_GWFND - SAP NetWeaver Gateway Foundation
GW_CORE – Core Components
IW_FND - Foundation
IW_BEP - Business Enablement Component
