How to customize Logon Screen in CE 7.2
central point of access the Logon page of a portal gives a first impression
about a company e.g. by displaying the branding logo, logon image and logon text. This blog
entry serves as a How to guide which explains the customization of a Logon
Screen in CE 7.2.
comparison to Portal 7.0 there are no more par files which can be downloaded
directly from the portal by navigating to System Administration -> Support
-> Portal Runtime -> Browse Deployment. Instead of a par file the Logon
Screen can be found in a so called Web Application Archive (WAR) which is the
User Interface Archive of an Enterprise Application Archive (EAR). To make the
relevant Logon files available the WAR file has to be imported into NWDS by selecting
it directly from the portal file system.
NWDS: Select File -> Import -> WAR file
the WAR file import the external jar library
tcsecumelogonlogic_api.jar has to be added manually to the newly created WAR
project. This file can be found on <ASJava_InstallationJ00j2eeclusterappssap.comcom.sap.security.core.logonservlet_jsplogon_app

To make the changed WAR file
available firstly a new EAR project has to be created.
File- > New – > Other – > Enterprise Application Project
Choose the mandatory WAR Module in the

NWDS: EAR project -> Export as SAP EAR File
Deploy the EAR file (earProjectName.ear)
