Content migration

I am looking for advise/tools how we can migrate an exiting website (parts of it) to the Portal.

To me it sounds you have extract the text , pictures from the current source and than upload all content to the portal framework whereafter you need to re-create XML forms with that content. Could someone point me to some best practice guide for content management in general and maybe tell me if there are clever ways in doing this?

    This is a very broad question. If you can be more specific, I can give you more specific details. In general, you don't have to migrate your existing website content to the SAP portal. You can create iviews in the portal to reference you current website directly. So all you would have to bring over are the images, etc you need to brand the portal to look like your organization.

    Another tool available is the iview catcher. During the creation of iviews from other webpages, you can take just parts of a web page.

    Another tool provide in the SAP portal environment is called the Generic creator. This allows you to create mass content in the portal.

    Documentation on all these tools are available on

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks John, to be more specific, the idea is to sease the current website and do all stuff in the portal which means that part of the website content than needs to be managed in the portal environment. As you suggest, than indeed would a mass upload be a candidate.

    Do you know where that content mass-upload is explained?
