Learn how to use XML to automate the creation of portal content objects and the execution of actions in the Portal Content Directory (PCD). You can create mass content without the need to use the portal wizards and editors. In addition, advanced users can perform batch operations and make pinpoint modifications within a large content base.
It is now possible to discover the landscapes and systems maintained in the System Landscape Directory (SLD) automatically and to apply the configured properties to the systems in the Portal. Read this blog for more information Integrating SAP NetWeaver Portal 7.3 with a Central SLD
And there is also a second blog on SLD integration. A new wizard is introduced in SAP NetWeaver 7.3 for selecting which system to be synched with and which parameters values to save in the Portal. The main advantage of the SLD integration is the ability to create a system in the Portal, based on the information maintained in the SLD, which will be synchronized with its equivalent system in the SLD.
