Import PO7.4 BPM to PO 7.5 NWDS BPM

I need to modify BPM that was created in SAP PO7.4. We have upgraded to SAP PO7.5.

I have downloaded the latest SAP NWDS Eclipse. In SAP PO7.5 NWDS I cannot see a way to do this.

Under the old SAP PO7.4 NWDS there was a Composite Explorer Perspective and you could right click on the white space in the Composite Explorer view and import a .SCA file (containing a BPM). You could then play around with the BPM, build it and then deploy it.

Under SAP PO7.5 NWDS this is not clear - it is different and seems to have gap ! - I have managed to import a .SCA (containing my SAP PO7.4 BPM) via Development Infrastructure Perspective - Now what do I do ? How do I get at the BPM ?

    I have the answer (thanks to my good buddy Saptak !). For example I have a BPM that is named NMMCCOLL.
    Open up Development Infrastructure.
    Right click on the LocalDevelopment icon and select "Import SC".
    Browse to the location of the .SCA file (when I have exported .SCA previously there are always 2 .SCA files e.g. NMMCCOLL_0(1).sca and - choose the )
    Click Next Under the LocalDevelopment you should now see the NMMCCOLL component.
    Expand the NMMCCOLL component. You should see 2 things. One with the "\pr\pm" and one without. Right click on the "pr\pm" and select Sync/Create Project.
    This should create the project and then prompt you to open the Process Development perspective.
    In the Process Development perspective you should now see your BPM it all its glory.

    The next step for me is the change the BPM I just imported and see if I can deploy it.

    PS. I don't have NWDI installed as yet in the SAP environment I'm working in.

    Hi Jonny,

    Did you try with the Process Modeling, Process Development perspective and check if you are able to get there?

    Hi - yes I can see those perspectives but there is no option to import a Product ( a product contained in a .SCA ).

    I have read that in that the Composite Designer was REMOVED in NWDS PO7.5. This was were I used to import my Products (in .SCA) and edit the Processes.

    So I am still stuck. Have you managed to import and edit any of your existing BPMs and how you do this ?.
