Hello!

I want to introduce my self developing portal application on WebAS 7 JAVA. Is it possible to deploy a SAP Enterprise Portal on it?

Best regards

Hi,

sorry, but the answer is no - it is not possible to deploy SAP Enterprise Portal on the Java EE 5 edition.

This edition is especially tailored for application development scenarios based on latest Java EE standards!

That being said, you might be interested in the opportunity to check development with portlets (JSR 168) on this edition (that is, develop portlet components and deploy them in the web container on the server). It also includes a predeployed web application that can list all portlets deployed on the server and can render their content. You can access the application using this url: http://<host>:<port>/portletbrowser

Hope this helps a bit!

So, you mean that the Java EE 5 sneak preview supports JSR 168? Do you know, if there's any documentation about this?

Hi Lars,

this is it - the Java EE 5 edition supports JSR 168! To learn more on all the features provided with the edition, refer to <a href="https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/docs/library/uuid/f98c731d-0e01-0010-dfa5-dfb8f49dac6e">this</a> overview document.

As far as documentation is concerned, yes, there is a guide for developing portlets. Find it <a href="https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/docs/library/uuid/14b5d01e-0e01-0010-24aa-f12ee5940060">here</a>.

This is a guide on the portlets programming model.

Both documents are accessible from the https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/developerareas/java?rid=/webcontent/uuid/28b1ed0e-0d01-0010-c887-a8f... [original link is broken] [original link is broken] home page! Highly recommended to check it out - you might find other interesting materials there.

Btw., I now move this topic to the Java EE 5 @ SAP forum as information contained in here could be of interest to others working with this edition.

Hi Ivaylo,

thanks for your reply. That is really great news indeed. But as long as the SAP NetWeaver Portal does not support JSR 168 compliant portlets the support for JSR 168 is somewhat useless in my point of view. But I hope to see the SAP NetWeaver Portal supporting JSR 168 in its next release.

Kind regards, Lars

Hi Lars,

I completely agree with you that having no SAP NetWeaver Portal you can't really execute end-to-end scenarios! However, this is just a preview edition with main focus on Java EE 5 and related standards (and not showcasing the whole NetWeaver stack). Therefore, I would say having runtime support for JSR168 is better than nothing - you can still use the APIs for developing portlets and deploying them quite some months in advance of the next official version of NetWeaver. That should be enough for try-out scenarios

Otherwise, the enterprise portal in the next major release of NetWeaver will surely support JSR168.

Regards,

Ivo
