SAP has added capabilities to its Netweaver platform to help organisations run mission-critical Java applications.

The company made a raft of announcements at its TechEd '04 developer conference in San Diego last week. Enhancements to Netweaver included Java virtual machine technology to limit the impact of errors in Java applications running simultaneously. This could save time and cut costs for Java systems administrators in writing and testing Java applications, said SAP.

Michael Barnes, vice-president at analyst firm Meta Group, said enterprises could benefit from SAP's J2EE standards-based system, providing it could ensure the stability of Java applications.

He said, "Although Java is one of the primary technologies for large-scale application development, no major software implementation is free from errors, and the robustness of Java applications remains an issue."

SAP said it would extend Netweaver's master data management module, which handles customer, product and supplier information. Global data synchronisation capabilities will be available in December 2004.
