As already mentioned in the blog posts DMO: introducing the new UI and SUM: extending the new UI to AS Java scenarios a new, exciting user interface (UI) is available for the Software Update Manager (SUM) bringing flexibility and a fresh, modern look to your desktop.
This user interface has been released for usage in the database migration option (DMO) scenario.
With Software Update Manager 1.0 SP 13 the SL Common UI is now not only available for AS Java based systems, but also for AS ABAP based systems in SUM scenarios for upgrades, EHP installations and applying SPs.
The new SL Common UI is based on SAPUI5 and is provided for preview and testing purposes in parallel to the primary Software Update Manager GUI. It is running in a web browser and does not require any java UI component anymore (see figure below).
