The Mini SAP Web Application Server 6.10 is a full SAP basis system, but without application areas such as HR, SD, MM etc. Because it does have standard SAP development tools such as the development workbench(SE80) you are able to develop and test new custom functionality including reports, transactions, Business Server Pages and ABAP Objects on your home PC. It has Full ABAP Stack functionality of mySAP Technology SAP Server, GUI and SAPDB database.

How do you get the Mini SAP System?
In order to get the free Mini SAP, you need to buy one of the following books which come with the SAPWeb Application Server(WAS) 6.10 on two CDs.

Installing MiniSAP System?
Here are the instructions on how to Install minisap. It is a fairly straight forward process as long as you follow the installation instructions provided with the software. Most of the errors I came across where to do with the installation of SQL server 2000, which are also answered in the Installing minisap on your PC guide.

Since the days of the Mini SAP Web Application Server 6.10 things have got a little bit more complicated so if the installation instructions dont work or you requuire a more upto dated version of SAP check out these step by step video guides for installing SAP trial software including IDES, HANA, BW/BI on you home or local PC. These are also constantly updated to take into account the lastest information.
