  1. Hi,

    It’s a very nice blog for beginners. What next to this? when are you going to post your next blog on ESS/MSS BP(preferably some stuff on FPM) and how to customize them?

    Thanks & Regards,
    Raj

    Hi Vinoth,

    As per point 1, should you be deploying on the local server ESS/MSS business package or the SCA’s of ESS/MSS. Please confirm.

    ESS/MSS(ESS,MSS & PCUI) track is set up and am able to import the configuration in NWDS. I can create project from the DC but when I deploy locally,it fails.

    Your input would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Vikram

    Thanks for these instructions. The are very helpful. On your step 10 however…

    10: GoTo Active DC’s and create project for pcui_gp/xssfpm and pcui_gp/xssutils under SAPPCUI_GP

    Your screen shots show Sync Archives highlighted.

    Was the intent here to actually create local projects for modification out of the pcui DC’s?

    Are the pcui dc’s generally off limits?

    Is there any documentation on the content of these packages or is it just a matter of trial and error to identify tyhe DC’s you need to modify to make required changes?

    Thanks Again,
    Doug

    1. Hi Raghav

      You can do a metadata compare of the webdynpro java code.  However, you have to redo them.  Unless you have found a solution to redoing customizations for ESS apps after a SP.

      Thanks
      Rajiv

      Hi Luis,

        Customization of the business package depends upon the provision given by SAP. Most of the BP are customizable but some cant be customized as the package will have only jar files instead of the class files.

    Hi Vinoth,

    Can you share information of how do we get the files into NWDS without the use of NWDI?

    Thanks & Regards,
    Vaishnavi
