Develop with bowstreet

Hey,

it is possible to develop portals with bowstreet and deploy this in the sap application server 6.40? Is the sap enterprise 6.0 compliant to jsr 168?

Thanks,

Frank

    The JSR168 (portlet) support will be available with the release of the NW05 version. Currently, there is no official support for running portlets on the EP6 portal. However, you can run them as remote iViews on another system (i.e. pointing to the URLs of the portlets).

    There are a number of SAP features such as Dynamic Navigation, Drag & Relate, Client Side Eventing, etc. that are very useful in a portal environment, but features aren't available if you use the portlet API (since the spec is fairly limited in such features). Nevertheless, SAP will fully support JSR168 in the next major release (NW05). We are currently in Rampup phase for NW04.

    Just to follow-up, yes, you can create JSR 168 compliant Portlets w/ Bowstreet Portlet Factory. We too are awaiting more JSR 168 compliant containers and are looking forward to SAPs JSR support w/ NW in '05.

    Reminder: we can bring SAP data into WebSphere Portal if you have a mixed shop. More info on our SAP extension can be found in the Bowstreet Developer Poprtal http://bcp.bowstreet.com/product/sapextension/index.html.
