How to Migrate HWC application to SMP 3

Hi Experts

We had built a HWC application on SUP 2.2 . Now , client has installed SMP 3 as a fresh installation and asked us to migrate the HWC application to SMP3. I know that in SMP3 , SAP has introduced a new concept for hybrid application which is called Kapsel. I saw the documents for migration of the existing application and I can see that MBOs can be migrated to SMP3 but I'm not sure if we have hybrid container application , how can we migrate it to SMP. I didn't find any documents on the same. So, in short , how we can work with the existing HWC application in SMP 3 platform . Please suggest .

    Hi Gairik,

    Migration from SUP 2.2.X/SMP 2.3.X to SMP 3.0 may require redevelop,  redesign,  redeploy of existing app. For MBO based app we have something like mbo model and that has to convert into EDM model.

    Check out some documents for better understanding

    Because the HWC application in SUP/SMP 2.x.x are using the MBO
    Mobile buisness Object they would need to be redesigned.

    There for at this time you can not migrate them to the SMP 3.0

    Now my understanding in a future release of SMP 3.x the MBO API
    will be added to the SMP 3.x so there may be some hope that HWC
    application may be migrated to the SMP 3.x.

    But at this point in time they have to be rebult you can not simply migrate them
    over to the 3.0

    I hope this helpsĀ
