BOBJ 4.0 Upgrade: Impact on Int Kit customizations for crystal reports?

11 Views

BW Version 7.01

BOBJ version XI 3.1

We would like to upgrade to BOBJ 4.0, could anyone provide input on these questions?

1 - Can we keep BW 7.01, or do we need to look into upgrading to 7.3? We'd prefer to not touch bw now. If we move to bobj 4.0, does BW need to be touched?

2 - We have modified these function modules in BW (i believe they are part of the integration kit in SAP BW) to meet end user requirements for crystal reports; will crystal reports in BOBJ 4.0 still work with these? I believe one of the improvements is that these aren't used anymore for performance reasons???

BAPI_MDPROVIDER_GET_VARIABLE

BAPI_MDDATASET_CREATE_OBJECT

BAPI_MDDATASET_GET_AXIS_DATA

BAPI_MDPROVIDER_GET_MEMBERS

BAPI_MDPROVIDER_GET_MEMBERS

3 - 99% of our reports are crystal, are there any other hurdles or reasons why we should be cautious moving to 4.0? We are looking to roll out explorer, webi, and xcelsius and would rather go ahead and catch up to 4.0...

Thanks,

Matt
