Last year I wrote two blogs on process implementation with SAP NetWeaver CE7.1:
– Easy process implementation with SAP NetWeaver BPM.
– Easy process implementation with SAP NetWeaver BPM / the BRM sequel.
I was wondering how things have changed with SAP NetWeaver CE7.2. So I picked up the expense demo process again and reimplemented it in CE7.2. Here are the differences:
Integration of Visual Composer.
Now it is really easy to use the Visual Composer to generate your UI’s:
Of course you can change this according to your needs:
Nice thing is that once you have deployed your total process and still want to change your UI, you only have to deploy the changed UI’s and not the complete process again.
Code free development.
Remember that in my 7.1 demo I still needed some Java code to assign the right value to the approval status. True in case of approval and False when rejected.
This is now possible without any line of Java code.
Again a simple demo, but you can really feel the power of the Composition Environment growing with the 7.2 release.
Next is to explore the reporting possibilities, ERP integration, intermediate events and to start the process with a web service call.
