We have an SRM 7.01 (SRM Server 7.01) installed in our environment. It was installed as an ABAP system.
We've discovered that now we will need LAC. I have some questions regarding the deployment of LAC which are as follows:
1. Does LAC on SRM 7.01 require SAP J2EE engine to run? According to SAP Help (http://help.sap.com/saphelp_srm701/helpdata/en/4b/7566683bf75a18e10000000a421937/frameset.htm)
The Live Auction Cockpit is available in both Java and ABAP. The following deployment options are available:
Live Auction Cockpit on Java Web Server
Live Auction Cockpit on ABAP Web Server
Live Auction Cockpit on Java Web Server in supplier self-services
Live Auction Cockpit on ABAP Web Server in supplier self-services
So that means it is not mandatory to deploy LAC on J2EE server. Can anybody please confirm the same?
2. If it does, then can we deploy the BP SRM 7.01 and LAC on our existing EP 7.0? (SRM ABAP component is on 7.02)
3. The installation guide says that the J2EE eninge used for LAC should have its UME pointing to the SRM ABAP system. Can't we deploy LAC component on a Portal with its own UME database?
