If you are searching on Sapscripts, Form painter, Smartforms, or any other GUI related doubts, you can read out the forum to get all the relevant information when you trying SAP on MAC.

These information are available for you till a new version on mac os is released with SAPGUI Form Painter Support Especially.

Kind of following points are supported by the SAPGUI for Windows Platform, but which are not yet available for the SAPGUI for the Java Environment…


  • Office-Integration, such as integration of frontend office applications (like Word, Excel and so on) into SAP transactions is not available.
  • Some ActiveX-controls part of SAP GUI for Windows used for special purposes are not available as JavaBean in SAP GUI for Java, for example
  • SAPscript, New ABAP editor, Search Help Control is not supported (the old style F4 help window is used instead, offering the same functionality).
  • CL_GUI_FRONTEND_SERVICES: Some methods of this class are not functional using SAP GUI for Java because they are not appropriate for a Java application (like “current directory”), required resources (like the Windows Registry) or Java APIs are not available.
  • Graphical Screen Painter is not available. The alphanumeric layout editor is supported.
  • Gantt (ABAP class CL_GUI_BARCHART) and Net (ABAP class CL_GUI_NETCHART) Graphics are not available as in SAP GUI for Windows, where these components are available as ActiveX controls.
