Here is quite a newbe question I suppose..
Is there a fairly easy method to change the content of the iViews on the HOME page in the portal?
We wish only to change the text in the 'SAP Enterprise Portal' iView (com.sap.portal.welcome.iView) in the 'Portal Information' page. I already copied the original page and iView to a separate folder.
Since we only need to show a simple text on this page, I think there is no need to develop a completely new iView, but instead want to change the existing iView (at least a copy of it).
The copied version of the iView wont help in this case since the code link is the same. This iView and several other welcome iViews are controlled by the com.sap.portal.ivs.iviewservice component.
You can download the component from System Administration->Support->Support Desk->Portal Runtime->Browse Deployment
navigate to ROOT/WEB-INF/deloyment/pcd
download the component "com.sap.portal.ivs.iviewservice.par.bak"
import the par file into NWDS
change "just the text" in the welcome.properties file within the PORTAL-INF/private/classes directory
export the par file to the Portal...presto!
Hope this helps, points are appreciated!!!
Best way to change the text inside <b>com.sap.portal.welcome_iView</b> iview is to get the
com.sap.portal.ivs.iviewservice.par into NDS and open the JSP(or property file) to modify the text. and deploy it back to the portal.
<i>If u don have NDS, download the par file onto ur desktop, open it with winrar(or something else) to find a jsp(or property file), open it and modify the text..put it back into the par file and upload.</i>
