SAP AG 2006, xMII Next Generation Sneak Peak. Bimal Mehta / 2

Key Customer Questions Answered


How does NW play a role in xMII?
Is the footprint bigger for 12.0 than 11.5? Can I still install it at the plant site?

What new functions are in 12.0 and how will this benefit me?
Core Integration Intelligence

What about migration?


If I am starting to implement now how do I plan for the next release?

How is Security handled, is it different?

Supportability
1. Supportability
Central Alert Monitoring System (CCMS) integration Solution Manager Diagnostics For remote diagnostics/troubleshooting. Heartbeat Check
The heartbeat will be visualized as a single alert ("traffic light") in the CCMS

System Landscape Directory links Standard SAP Logging/Tracing Java Application Response Measurement (JARM) similar to existing trace timer JMX Monitor System Stats

2. Documentation
Broken down into installation, administration, configuration, etc.

System Landscape Directory links


System Landscape Directory is an SAP NetWeaver component. It is completely implemented with Java technology and deployed as a Java component on the SAP Web Application Server. As System Landscape Directory is already contained in the installation of every SAP Web Application Server Java 6.40 or higher, no further installation is required you only have to perform the easy and quick configuration to activate it.

Standard SAP Logging/Tracing Java Application Response Measurement (JARM) similar to existing trace timer
The concept of JARM is based on a request. A request is defined as a set of operations and consists of components. JARM measures the overall run time (optionally the amount of transferred data and the user) of a request and its associated JARM-components.

JMX Monitor System Stats


the JMX (Java Management Extensions) is used to manage and monitor all server components (services, interfaces, libraries). The Java Application Monitoring API gives programmers a high-level interface to attach to the central monitoring infrastructure

All described scenarios require at least an SAP ERP 2005 or any other SAP software component that runs on the on 7.00 basis component. SAP AG 2006, xMII Next Generation Sneak Peak. Bimal Mehta / 18

SAP xMII 12.0 New Developer Functionality

Project Management Import and Export of Projects


Transactions, templates, and WebPages into Projects.

Dynamic mapping for xml queries and transforms


e.g. server:\\..\ (allows for portability across machines)

JRE 1.5 support Full Accessibility No applets on admin / config side

SAP AG 2006, xMII Next Generation Sneak Peak. Bimal Mehta / 19

SAP xMII Publish Assistant

The Frontpage and DreamWeaver plugins have been updated with a Publish Assistant to get and put content into the SAP xMII content management structure.

SAP AG 2006, xMII Next Generation Sneak Peak. Bimal Mehta / 20

xMII SAP Function Best Practices Templates


xMII SAP Function Best Practice templates:
Pre-configured xMII transactions that execute one or more remote-enabled function in R/3 or ECC for a specific business or data scenario. Content includes xMII intellectual property gained over years of use that simplifies or accelerates the use of the function in a customer application. Content is specifically oriented to using the SAP functions in the shop floor operations environment.

Access to the best practice processes are immediately web service enabled. Plan:
Create a collection of building block transactions that expose many of the basic functions through xMII Create 2nd & 3rd level transactions using the building blocks for more advanced or industry specific processes. Higher level transactions can then be used as the basis for sophisticated composite applications.

100 templates available by year-end Templates will be delivered via SAP Developer Network (SDN)
SAP AG 2006, xMII Next Generation Sneak Peak. Bimal Mehta / 21

Template Categories The current categories for the building block transactions are:
Materials Data Material Movements Batches Production Orders Process Orders Plant Maintenance Notifications Plant Maintenance Work Orders Quality Planned Orders Repetitive Manufacturing IDOCs

The collection of xMII transactions will be continuously evolve with all content posted and maintained on SDN.

Migration What to do?

SAP AG 2006, xMII Next Generation Sneak Peak. Bimal Mehta / 28

Migration From 11.5 to 12.0 Remote Server


doesnt have to be on the same server; migrate to multiple servers

Content
Data servers, navigation trees, system properties, SVG objects, transactions, templates, webpages - html into new project structures.

XML Users will not be migrated

SAP AG 2006, xMII Next Generation Sneak Peak. Bimal Mehta / 29

Planning for SAP xMII 12.0 DOs and DONTs

DOs:
Do Use IRPT, HTML, JSP Do Use Xacute .NET full compatibility to Java version on upgrade (with exception of MSMQ Action) Do Use LDAP integration relatively seamless transition Do Continue to expand your applications all content will be migrated and supported. Map your content into projects i.e. create root folder structures for templates, trx, etc.
E.g. Transactions\Demo\; Templates\Demo\.....

Do Continue Applet usage Do Start a plan to migrate to database or LDAP user management
Get use to using authentication on an individual basis, bypassing authentication will no longer work Passing Login Name and Password on URL still works if you need that functionality.

Do Build content using RELATIVE URLs whenever possible to make migration easier. Remember all Lighthammer URLs are changing to SAP xMII and user content will be accessed relative to that. Most bookmarks will not work!

SAP AG 2006, xMII Next Generation Sneak Peak. Bimal Mehta / 30

Planning for SAP xMII 12.0 DOs and DONTs

DONTs:
Dont Use Active Server Pages (ASP) if you want multi-platform capabilities inherent with Web AS Dont Create 1000s of local XML users
If you have, we will help you we do expect a programmatic solution (SDN content) If you havent, dont start now

Dont Have Users rely only on bookmarks as navigation tools Dont Be afraid please ask questions
