BO 4.0 without Java Stack


is it possible that i work with BO 4.0 and BICS without a Java Stack. In NW 7.01 the same as in NW 7.3

In some books i read that it is possible, PAM says that i need Java BI only for BICS with Xcelsius (Dashboards) but Ingo Hilgefort wrote in one of his BO books that it is possible without.

Could anyone tell my how it is in generell. When do i need a Java Stack and when do i need a BI Java. The diffrents between Java Stack (As Java) and BI JAVA is clear.

Or didn`t i need a java stack?????

Everything is a little bit confusing me? I read much books and dokus but in no one there i could read the same and no one gives a good conclusion.

Thanks in advance.

    With BO 4.0 Feature Pack 3, we won't need to use NetWeaver to connect to SAP BW from Xcelsius through BICS connection. It means that the Dashboards which use BICS connection, can be deployed in BI platform and viewed through BI Launchpad.

    Other client tools can already leverage the BICS connectivity with BO 4.0

    starting with Feature Pack 03 Xcelsius is offering the same connection as Web Intelligence and Crystal Reports for Enterprise, which also means that you would not need the BI Java part.
