Getting started with EP integration

Hi,

A company I work for has a .NET web application that they would like to integrate into the SAP Enterprise Portal. There are a few .aspx pages that should be accessed from the portal. So, we would like to create a tab for our application and have a few links that open the .aspx pages. Eventually, we would like to get the integration certified.

This is the first time I've worked with SAP. From what I've read, doing this type of integration should be fairly easy, but I am not sure how to start. I'm hoping someone will be kind enough to give me some tips or point me to some good source of information.

I've installed the NW04SneakPrevJavaSP11, which I believe contains everything I need for SAP including the NetWeaver Developer Studio. I also installed PDK for .NET and it looks like it has integrated properly with Visual Studio.

When I extracted the content of the PDK for .NET, it contained two files, com.sap.portal.dotnet.framework.sda and com.sap.portal.dotnet.services.systems.sda. I do not see these services in my Control Panel Services. I've read that I must deploy these through the SDM, but I did not figure out how to do that.

Can someone please provide some instructions to get me started with this integration? Do you have a simple example that adds a tab for an application in the portal and contains a link to open a URI? What should I look for to verify that I have everything installed and working correctly to begin the integration?

Thank you very much!

    Hi Kenneth,

    If you are looking at integrating .Net web application with SAP EP there are two ways of doing it -

    1. Uset the PDK for .Net and then develop the .Net applications using the Newweaver controls, finally deploy this .Net application on the Portal itself.

    2. If this .Net application is already built and running on a different server other that EP, u can intergate this using a URL reference ans enable SSO form EP to this .Net application. The effort in this case will be very less.

    If you choose the 1st approach , then you have to configure SAP EP to deploy .Net applications -

    1. Configure the .Net runtime in EP

    2. Install the PSK plugin in Visual Studio.

    The two SDA files have to be imported in your Portal using the Software deployment manager, the person who has installed EP will be aware of this.

    There is also a pdf document on SDN which explains everything in detail about the configurations required for PDK for .Net.

    Regards,

    Vivek
