    Why does SAP offer new forums?

    Due to the enormous success of discussion forums on SDN, SAP NetWeaver added the SDN-like forums to its own collaboration capabilities. Thus SAP also contributes to the growing need in community support.

    Were the forums developed by SAP?

    No: SAP NetWeaver Portal integrated the Jive Forums, a proven forum solution,

    which is already used as forum application in SAP Developer Network (SDN). Due to

    the enormous success of the SDN forums these forums were also integrated into SAP NetWeaver Portal.

    What is the technology behind the new forums?

    Forums are a 100% Java application that leverages server-side technologies such as

    Servlets, JSP, and JDBC.; they are database independent through OpenSQL

    compliance.

    Since when and on what releases are forums be available?

    Forums are available as of SAP NetWeaver 2004 SP Stack 20 and SAP

    NetWeaver 7.0 (formerly known as SAP NW 2004s) SP Stack 12.

    How can you get the forums?

    Forums are technically not part of a SAP NetWeaver stack: when you deploy

    SP Stack 20 or SP Stack 12/13, forums are not included automatically. Forums are

    delivered in two SCA files (Forum SCA and KMCUI Layer SCA) which must be

    downloaded from Service Marketplace (alias swds: Download -> Support Packages

    and Patches -> Entry by Application Group -> SAP NetWeaver -> SAP NETWEAVER

    -> SAP NETWEAVER 04/2004s -> Entry by Component -> Enterprise Portal).

    Is there an additional license?

    Forums are part of the SAP NetWeaver license, there is no extra pricing.

    What is the relation between discussion groups and the new forums?

    There is a co-existence of discussion groups and the new forums in the system. If

    existing customers already use discussion groups they can continue using them.

    However they should consider to switch to the new forums especially in case they

    plan to implement a new community scenario. If new customers plan to use

    discussions within SAP NetWeaver Portal, they should no longer use the ?old"

    discussion groups, they should start using the new forums.

    Customers should consider in general that the new forums offer an intuitive user

    interface and a broad range of forum functionality which is missing in the "old"

    discussion groups.

    What are the main improvements in forum functionality as compared to the existing discussion groups?

    Forums have a much nicer and more intuitive user interface and they offer a broad

    range of forum functionality whereas the dicussion groups offer just very "basic"

    functions. Forums enable users to discuss common issues and topics, post questions

    and announcements to the community, escalate questions to experts, and get

    updates on posted comments. End users can also create draft versions of postings

    and vote in polls. Moreover forums also include extensive and easy-to-use

    moderation features such as content control by approval processes, by deleting or

    moving content and also by closing discussions.

    Is a content migration planned from the dicussion groups to the forums?

    A migration is planned in the feature scope but the delivery timeline is not finalized.

    Are forums RSS-enabled?

    RSS (Real Simple Syndication) is a way to make forum data available so that users

    can be notified when the data changes, such as when new posts are made. If you

    enable RSS, a user can choose to set up syndication of forum content to a personal

    homepage, a blog, or other website. They can also read the contents of the RSS data

    (known as a feed) in an "RSS aggregator," a tool that presents the data and links

    back to its source.

    How are users informed about changed content in forums?

    There a to ways: By subcription to a forums or by RSS feeds.

    What features are coming next and in which stacks?

    For the latest information read the forum blog at https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/weblogs?blog=/pub/wlg/5104. [original link is broken] [original link is broken] [original link is broken]

    Will forums be integrated into the collaboration rooms?

    A standard integration into collaboration rooms will not be supported in the future. There are two how-to guides available on SDN describing a workaround for the integration of forums into collaboration rooms:

    https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/go/portal/prtroot/docs/library/uuid/402898af-f2f6-2910-1dba-e85c992d816b for SAP NetWeaver 2004 and

    https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/go/portal/prtroot/docs/library/uuid/80e5bf16-fe22-2a10-15a2-a613b4bcef1b for SAP NetWeaver 7.0.

    Forums will also be part of the collaboration portal features set. These new features will enhance an existing SAP NetWeaver Portal 7.0 (2004s) with significant usability improvements as well as new functions for collaboration and content management. The collaboration portal provides all services for business users to jointly access, create, and share information. It is based on the proven portal infrastructures and embedded in the corporate business application landscape.

    Within the collaboration portal we will also have a new generation of rooms, called workspaces. Forums can easily be integrated into these workspaces via drag&drop.

    For more information on the collaboration portal see: https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/go/portal/prtroot/docs/library/uuid/e00ddbb1-1d2e-2a10-75b0-add05c50ef00.

    If helpful reward points

    Thnx
