My deepest regret that I have to do this in order to support me maintaining this blog since I have to maintain my internet connection. I need to charge to you if you want to get this simple information.

I am offering paid support to Basis who want to implement Linux Migration on workstation so that by using SAPGUI for Java on Linux can print smoothly as well as Windows-based SAPGUI client. On SAPGUI for Windows, you can easily print SAP documents. But you can’t do that when you’re using SAPGUI for Java on Linux.

Prepare these stuffs before you can proceed to installation :

Oracle 11g Extended Statistics for SAP Tables

Extended Statistics is an attempt to fix one of the flaws in CBO–values of different columns are not correlated.

Let us take an example of two columns in a table. One of the column contain department code and the other contains employee name. Let us assume that there are 10 departments and 3000 employees in our example. In a real life scenario, all the employees do not belong to all the departments, but CBO assumes that is the case and hence it assumes that there are 3000*10 = 30000 combinations of employee name and department code that exist. In reality, it can be between 3000 and 30000 (assuming employee belongs to at least one department and can clock for multiple departments).
