One Portal for ESS - multiple HCM backends?

Hi all,

I am wondering if I could run a portal (7.00) and connect this to a HCM backend with ECC 6 EhP2, thus requiring the BPs and content with WebDynpro/Java technology to be deployed in the portal and simultaneously connect to another HCM backend based on ECC6 EhP5, thus requiring the necessary BPs and content with WebDynpro/ABAP technology in the portal (by the way: which BPs are necessary to be deployed in the portal?). For accessing services in the EhP2 backend we will use the Homepage framework but for accessing services from the EhP5 backend we will use only WebDynpro/ABAP. Can we use both of them in one portal (of course by means of different roles...)?

Kind regards and thanks in advance for any hints,

Uwe

    Yes, this is possible.

    by the way: which BPs are necessary to be deployed in the portal?

    EhP2 requires a BP ESS 1.2 and EhP5 needs BP ESS 1.5

    Can we use both of them in one portal (of course by means of different roles...)?

    Yes, you may as long as you are able to make sure that there would be two similar set of PCD objects existing in your scenario and you dont mix them up 😊

    Hi Guru's

    We are also planning for SAP HCM (ESS /MSS).Please provide suggestions and advice.....

    Our production system:

    ECC6-SR3 -SP12 (ABAP).

    my understanding:

    1. Install SAP Netweaver Portal (AS JAVA) + EP + MSS/ESS/ Java Components ( in a seperate server)

    2. Connect this system to Backend Ecc6 .

    My query :

    1.whether we need to install EHP5 in JAVA system (in this case ESS/MSS system) or SAP NETWEAVER7 is OK.

    2.do we need to upgrade the backend ECC6 system to EHP5 , to enable the latest fucntions of HCM.

    please advice and provide some relevant doc...for the same.

    thanks in advance..
