Enterprise Portal and Netweaver AS

Team ,

Am new to SAP. I have some basic doubts.

1. In R/3 system we refer to the central component as the AS i.e the Net weaver AS which have the ABAP AS aswell as JAVA AS.

The normal webdynpro component created in ABAP editor as they run using this ABAP AS in netweaver AS ?

The Java webdynpro apps we may develop using NWDS also are they run on these JAVA AS inside netweaver AS?

The PORTAL does it require another Server than this or is it run with help of the same netweaver AS ?

In A EP home page we can give links to multiple web applications both ABAP WD apps and JAVA WD apps. Is there any way to publish the info in home page other than these. The requirement is to make some information available to users without logging on.

Eg a scenario like circulars- which are published as hyperlinks

Can we create third part Java apps and deploy in net weaver AS . Then why we need JCO the same way JAVA WD created in NWDS communciates with database should'nt it work? or is it like we reach the base thru ABAP FM calls and all?

recently some body was explaining EP and was reffering to PORTAL severer continously which made the impression that its another separate

entity out side the AS as part of R/3

Any help is much appreciated .

    Hi Mandan,

    The Enterprise Portal supports integration of WDA, WDJ applications etc. Such are integrated using a Portal iview.

    It is possible to configure iview permissions to enable access without logon.

    Portal is a application which runs on top of the NW AS Java.

    Best regards,

    • Hi Nick,

      Thanks for the reply. By enable ivew access without logon do you mean that every user who just type in the URL will be able to view the content...

      imagine a scenario like career Listing/ Current openings in a firm.

      Out side users ..i.e job seekers,People outside the company will have to see this info. They may not be having any sap user Id...

      i want some info to be listed to public domain ..For eg as we see in yahoo portal homepage and all...i.e without login
