What's new in SAP Portal 7.3

With the latest SAP NetWeaver 7.3 release SAP offers a reliable and mature portal portfolio with various innovations and functional enhancements for end users, administrators and developers. Check out the latest portal overview and roadmap presentation for details:
  • Web Page Composer (WPC): WPC is now an integral part of the portal – no separate add-on component any longer. The functional enhancements were perceived as major improvements for managing and mashing up portal pages. SAP offers various Web Content Management for creating custom forms layouts or adding third party editor. A migration tool supports customers running WPC 7.0 already (see SAP note 1371703).
  • Enhanced administration environment: the streamlined administration environment eases various tasks via intuitive wizards and tools – especially the improved AppIntegrator for easy integration of Business Suite content. Please note that the double click is no longer working. Transport capabilities via CTS+ and supportability have also been improved a lot. Various configuration and troubleshooting tasks have been incorporated directly into SAP NetWeaver Administrator. And KM also provides new reports for monitoring what’s going on and cleaning up your system.
  • Ajax Framework: The new Ajax Framework Page (AFP) comes with the new “SAP Signature Design” and offers lot of services for increasing the people productivity via use of navigation, favorites, powerful (quick) search and tabsets (i.e. grouping of navigation entry points). The portal offers a flexible configuration tool for major AFP settings. SAP does not recommend adjusting the out-of-the-box AFP beyond these configuration options. For pixel-perfect UI customizations SAP recommends to leverage the powerful set of APIs. Check the collaborativeAFP Wiki for further details, examples and how-to guides.
  • Wikis and Forums: Finally SAP provides predefined roles for the wikis to enable smart collaborative writing in teams. There is no additional license required. You just need to download the add-on solution “Portal Add-on SAP NW 7.3” from Service Marketplace and install it on your portal server. The forums are also part of the release and offer some new features such as rating. For further details see release notes for portal and collaboration.
  • Enterprise Workspaces 1.1: The latest version of our personal productivity and collaboration solution for portal users offers an easy content consumption and “shopping cart” approach. Starting with SP1 of Enterprise Workspaces 1.1 customers can run this add-on solution on top of Portal 7.3.
  • Powerful Web Services and APIs: The portal provides a set of APIs and Web Services (JavaDocsDeveloper Guide) to extend the product with your own custom solutions and enable interoperability scenarios.
