Java developers have long enjoyed the freedom of developing and managing Java applications locally on their PCs, relying solely on centralized source code control systems for change management. In an enterprise environment, however, with developers in distributed locations sometimes working on the same code at the same time, this model quickly becomes a nightmare to manage. SAP NetWeaver Development Infrastructure (NWDI) offers a solution and brings many of the proven, world-class change management capabilities of ABAP to the Java world. This article, the first in a two-part series, teaches you the fundamental concepts you need to know to begin building, deploying, and managing changes to your Java applications with NWDI.
