Questions about Netweaver architecture u0085

Hello,

my configuration is the following : 1 server BI 7 and 1 server with the Portal.

I put the components like this :

BI 7 server : AS ABAP (It seems that AS Java is not necessary ...)

Portal Server : AS Java, BI_Java, EP

I understand that I need an oracle database on the Portal server too …

Could you confirm that these choices are valid or not ?

What about the SID ? Have I to take the same for BI and Portal ? for example : BD1 …

Or can I take BD1 for BI part and PD1 for Portal Part ?

Regards

    Hi,

    > BI 7 server : AS ABAP (It seems that AS Java is not necessary ...)

    YES, it is not necessary that you install WebAS JAVA

    >I need an oracle database on the Portal server too …

    No, the portal server does not require its own database. It uses the database of WebAS JAVA. So if you have installed your DB instance on any machine and your current WebAS JAVA instance is referring to that machine, nothing else is required. But if your WebAS JAVA is totally independent of your WebAS ABAP machine and not using the same DB instance, then you will needs an additional DB instance.

    >what about the SID ? Have I to take the same for BI

    Each component within a system will need its own SID. So you will need separate ones for BI and Portal.

    Regards

      Hi,

      >>In each server, I think I have to create an oracle database (one for AS ABAP and one for AS JAVA

      YES, if you are doing separate installation of ABAP and JAVA, rather than ABAP+JAVA Addon, then you will need separate database instances for both.

      >>But I wonder if there is no AS Java directly on the BI server (so : one AS JAVA on the BI server and one AS JAVA on the Portal) : have I less functionalities ?

      NO, the actual BI capabilities reside on the ABAP server. The BI JAVA component has additional functionality that you may or may not want to use. Primarily, you'd use BI JAVA for connecting to SAP and non-SAP data sources using UDI. Moreover, you will use Visual Composer for rapid BI application development. Visual Composer requires EP/JAVA/Datawarehouse source to fetch data from.
