This presentation explains why SAP has chosen Eclipse as THE platform for all its tools in the Java development area and outlines how SAP will expand the consumption towards a full blown modeling environment. Furthermore concrete consumption examples - means specific SAP Tools - will be introduced to sharpen the consumption picture. Eventually challenges of the Eclipse consumption strategy as the ongoing balancing of Consumption vc. Contribution and the local vs. real enterprise scope development will be presented.

Rainer Ehre, VP NetWeaver C Tools, joined SAP in 1986 with a Diploma of Computer Science of the University of Saarland, Saarbruecken. He started in ABAP programming language development which was/is SAP’s main business programming language, before he overtook responsibility for the SAP tools in the Java environment. In that role, he acted as the key driver for establishing Eclipse as SAP’s development tool platform in the Java environment. Today he is driving the SAP Modeling infrastructure on top of Eclipse, to expand the Eclipse leveraging towards a full blown modeling environment, serving SAP needs best.

After studying Physics and receiving a PhD in Applied Physics, Malte started his professional career at SAP working in application development for SAP. For several years, Malte developed BI and portal applications. Malte was one of the co-inventors and the lead development architect of the SAP Composite Application Framework. He is now lead development architect for the complete Eclipse based tools included in SAP’s Composition Environment.
