    Hello,

    I think that Java SDK is not used to upgrade BusinessObjects objects. It's used mainly for reporting

    tasks. There are only 2 methods to upgrade contents from XI 3.0 to BI 4.0 :

    1-Using the Upgrade Managment Tool BO application

    2-Using CMS copy from Central Configuration Manager application of the the destination platform and manual copy of the filestore

    For more information please consult this KBA 1572452 - How to upgrade to SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.0 from a previous release

    Hope that helps,

    Akram.

    SAP has provided UMT, which is the best tool for BO upgrade from 3.1 to 4.0. It would be best to use the same. Even if you do find / create a Java SDK, I do not think SAP support would be able to provide any help on such upgrade due to the procedure followed which is un-supported.

    Have a look into How to Upgrade to BI4.0 - Business Intelligence (BusinessObjects) - SCN Wiki

    and the link BI4 Upgrade and Promotion Management KBAs - Business Intelligence (BusinessObjects) - SCN Wiki which would provide a list of important notes in case of any issues faced during the upgrade process.
