XSS installation? Best spot to make a home for the new components?

Just curious as to "best approach" for installing the XSS java components....in our current configuration, our network/basis team chose to install the XSS components on the portal WAS(JAVA only) itself rather than on the ECC WAS(ABAP only). Since the components really just rely on having the JCO destinations set up, I figure "where they live" doesn't matter all that much. HOWEVER, I can see the pros/cons to the approaches. I can see them installed on the ECC box (I just think of them as plug-ins) but I also see the reasoning for having them on the portal (they are ESS/MSS). So, I am asking/wondering where other are installing these and what's the justification? Thanks in advance!

    There is no best spot for this I think. This depends completely on your infrastructure.

    When you have ECC ABAP standalone and the portal with XSS, that's fine. If you intend to place the XSS apps on your ECC box, you'll have to install the J2EE environment as well (more cpu, mem and so on).

    But if you separate it, you can upgrade easier. Every 3-4 months a new stack of XSS is launched. For the NW platform the interval is more or less 2 months.

    So there are pros and cons for both options :P

    cheers,
