We are redesigning our Web Service Architecture, and needed to set up ESR. As, we don't have a PI system(HCI will come soon), We have to install NetWeaver CE to set up our ESR.
Now, we are in process to upgrade our NetWeaver from 7.0 to 7.5. Is this going to affect the installation of CE. Do we have to first do the NetWeaver Upgrade and then go for CE.
As we need ESR( To access SPROXY), can we proceed with the CE Installation and SPROXY Connection with ESR and later on continue with the Upgrade processes.
We don't want to invest in another middleware product as we are anyways buying HCI.
We only need CE for ESR as of now.
And the reason for asking that question is in the documentation(SAP Composition Environment – SAP Help Portal Page), it is mentioned that "As of SAP NetWeaver 7.3, SAP NetWeaver Composition Environment (CE) has become part of the overall SAP NetWeaver platform".
Does that mean after upgrading our NetWeaver beyond 7.3, we would have to install CE differently?
Kindly, confirm if there are any pros and cons to installing CE prior/after Netweaver Upgrade to 7.5(From 7.0).
