upgrading EP6sp2 par-files to NW'04


is there som form check-list regarding upgrading par-files developed for EP6SP2 to NW'04 ?

After we have imported EP6 par-files and made changes in Netwaver Developer Studio, and then republished them, we experience problems using them in new NW04-iviews.

The general problem seems to be references used in the portalapp.xml (ie. we have references to in the SharingReference property).

An overview or som kind of info about typical portalapp.xml-refrences used in EP6, that is no longer valid would have been perfect !

Thanks in advance 😊

    Hi Jarle,

    that doesn't exist.


    The general advise is to have some NWDS classpath variables, for example one pointing to .../WEB-INF/portal/portalapps (or two folder above); pointing to a local installation, or, if that does not exist, copy the corresponding dir's from a server installation.

    Then after importan a SP2 PAR into NWDS, clear the .classpath files from portal references.

    Then, use classlocator (from sourceforge) to build the classpath again.

    Having this done successfully (so that no compile time errors occur), rebuild manually the SharingReference property: Look at the .classpath files, and manually enter all portal application names occuring as SharingReferences.

    That's quite straight forward and - once ClassLocator is installed and you know how to use it - won't take more than 15 minutes per project, even if it's big.

    Hope it helps
