    • Hi Sushil, Soujanya

      Thanks for your inputs. But I could not find anything which points to a new architecture, or changes to the Portal Framework.

      Most of these links talk about the new features, and other enhancements.

      I am interested to know if SAP has done any changes to the Portal core architecture itself or to the Web AS.

    • Hi,

      Looking just at the underlying Java/JEE framework, the switch from Java 1.4 to Java 6 is a considerable large change with a huge impact. That the portal is now supporting JSR168 and JSR286 and that portal applications are now using WAR and not anymore PAR is also what I consider a huge change. The support for SAML1.1 and SAML2.0 will also change the security architecture. Another big change is the Ajax Framework Page: instead of using the navigation tag library you can now use Javascript w/ AJAX.

      The other features are functional changes (ex: transports, WPC, Wiki), but the above are changes to the underlying framework.

      So, what do you consider an architectural change? What did you expect?
