I am trying to get my head around the architectural information around Customer Portal & AFS.
Would appreciate if you could provide inputs around these queries.
We are using SAP NW 7.01 SP06. ECC 6.0 EHP 4 . Now we are having AFS & Customer Portal (Customer B2B Web Capability around OTC) added in scope.
1 - Do we have any SAP pre-delivered Portal content on EP that is ready to be used out of the box for Customer Portal like ESS, MSS or SRM?
2 - Does Customer Portal run on Netweaver Portal - What is the Architecture?
3 - Do we need to use EFP / FPN concepts with Customer Portal around SAP EP?
4 - Is Portlet same as iViews or it is similar to the underlying app eg WD4A / WD4J?
5 - In case of custom inventory in Customer Portal - what would be the recommended implementation technology - WD4A / WD4J/ PDK object or any web service based development.
6 - Any additional installations of SAP components required to enable this?
