Multiple DataTargets in the Same BI 7.0 System to One DataSource


Currently, I do not have access to BI 7.0 system. I am wondering whether it is possible to connect MULTIPLE DataTargets of a single BI 7.0 system to ONE DataSource in the source system? I have searched the forum, but I couldn't find relevant posts. If I am not wrong, until BW 3.5, once a DataSource is assigned to an InfoSource, it can not be assigned to any other InfoSource of the same BW system. I have heard that this has changed in BI 7.0 with the new DataFlow concept.

The current requirement is that multiple DataTargets of a single BI system need to get DELTA data from the same DataSource in the source system. If this is technically possible in BI 7.0, should the source system also support such an assignment (since the DELTA load timestamps are maintained in the source system)? What source systems currently support this feature, if any? What are the appropriate tables in the source system that I need to look at to do further investigation?

All the useful inputs regarding these questions will be rewarded with points. Thanks!
