Using NetWeaver Developer Studio to modify the Portal Logon Page in NetWeaver 7.4
The process for updating the portal logon page is considerably different than in past portal versions. There are quite a few good references on SDN regarding the new process. Since I encountered some slight different issues than what was documented, I thought I’d document the whole process: Setting up the NWDS environment and making changes to the logon screen.
