SAP Business Client 7.0

The journey continues!

We are delighted to launch a new version of SAP Business Client (7.0) together with the new SAP GUI for Windows 7.60.

The new functions in 7.0 go a long way to providing what our customers have been asking for.

 

FEATURES:

BRANDING

  • The branding image is taken from the custom theme (FLP and SAP BC connections) unless the option “Use SAP GUI theme” is set or there is no branding image set in the custom theme.

  • Users can choose their own custom themes. For the FLP connection, SAP Business Client adopts the theme specified in the Fiori launchpad configuration. For the SAP Business Client, end users can choose from a variety of custom themes provided for systems.

THEMING

For better accessibility, we have introduced two more themes: High Contrast Black and High Contrast White – corresponding to the SAP Belize theme.

FAVORITES

With SAP Business Client 7.0, you can now import your favorites (Business Client and FLP connection type) and your SAP Easy Access favorites (Business Client connection).

MULTIPLE SYSTEMS

Administrator determines what side panel configuration shall be used (evaluate side panel configurations in the remote system where the main application is running in).

CONNECTION MANAGEMENT

Default Connection: You can define your favorite connection as the default connection. This will then be highlighted with a favorite icon (star).

The administrator therefore has to change the behavior of SAP Business Client in the administrator configuration file, NwbcOptions.xml.

Administrator Settings:

    <!-- If true, and a default connection is defined, the NWBC selects the default connection instead of the latest active connection at startup.  -->

    <UseDefaultConnection>true</UseDefaultConnection>

    <!-- The UUID of the defined default connection. Can be found in the SAPUILandscape.xml-file as the serviceid of the required connection.

         Typical value format: cee90b6f-3365-4bd3-9476-ae048d190615.-->
    <DefaultConnectionGuid></DefaultConnectionGuid>

Web Dispatcher: Administrators can define web dispatchers for usage in FLP and SAP BC connections. If web dispatchers are available for a system, they will be proposed in the system properties dialog before application servers.

DOWNLOAD; don’t forget to install .NET 4.6.2

  • Hi Sandra,

     

    thanks for the interesting article which prompted me to install the new version. However it does not seem to be available (yet), while SAPGUI 7.6 is available.

    When will the new version be available  for download? According to note 2744024 yesterday, but this seems not to be true…

     

    Regards,

    Wolfgang

  • Hi Wolfgang,

    BC7 is included in the SAP installation, just run SapNwBcSetup.exe to install it separately or  SetupAll.exe and it is included in the list of software that can be installed together with the SAP GUI 7.60.

  • Hi Sandra,

    Is it possible that the use of SBC with Chromium does not work yet? When I start a Fiori Launchpad connection, everything closes after a short time.

    If i change the Browser-Control to Internet Explorer, all works fine.

    Furthermore, I lack the option to attach SAP Business Client 7.0 to my startup:

    with best regards

  • Hi Sandra,

    We would like to use web dispatchers to access the Fiori from external with SAP BC7.0.

    Wondering if SAP BC7.0 is able to support “SAPGUI for Windows” when access from external.

    BRs,

    Por.

  • Hi Sandra,

    While trying to perform any recording from external tool, SAPGUI 760 session is opened. My requirement is to open a session in SAP Business Client 7.0, where we can have multiple tabs. Is it possible with current version of Business Client?

    When I checked via NWBC 5.0 (installed with SAPGUI 740), NWBC window gets opened for recording.

    • Hi Bhavya,

      the current version is SAP Business Client 7.0, PL1. And yes, multiple tabs/SAP GUI screens can be displayed.

      NWBC 5.0 is out of support.

    • Hi Christopher,

      it’s related to the side panels.

      MULTIPLE SYSTEMS

      Administrator determines what side panel configuration shall be used (evaluate side panel configurations in the remote system where the main application is running in).

       

      C&P issue. Thank you.

       

      Regards,

      Sandra

  • Hi Sandra

    We just started with FLP and I’m planning to use SAP Business Client 7.0, PL1 for users to access FLP, I also want to centralize the configuration files “Entries to the systems”
    I have deployed a test environment with the mentioned versions, centralizing the configuration files, in the file “SAPUILandscape.xml” centralize the entries to SAP Logon and FLP systems, and everything works wonderfully.

    However, I found an error that I hope you can help me solve in SAP Business Client 7.0, PL1, when I update the configuration file “SAPUILandscape.xml” for example including new FLP and SAP Logon entries, SAP Logon when I open it again it takes the changes and are reflected correctly, SAP Business Client 7.0, PL1 when you open it does not update and does not reflect the changes, you know some fix to correct this error ?, read the configuration files every time the application is opened.

    Thank you for your comments.

    Regards,

  • Hallo Sandra

    Ich habe erfolgreich folgendes gemacht:
    – Business Client Version 7.0 installiert;
    – Launchpad als System aufgenommen (Lösung ist Embedded);
    => Backend System und Frontend im selben System
    – Ich kann mich erfolgreich anmelden im Launchpad
    – Ich kann alle FIORI Kacheln, welche nicht transaktional sind aufrufen.

    Leider kommt mir bei den transaktionalen Fioris eine Fehlermeldung:

    Ich muss mich im System erst anmelden: Benutzer und Passwort (soweit ok)

    Dann aber die Fehlermeldung:

    SAP GUI for Windows 750
    Lastverteilungsfehler 85 bei Anmeldung:
    Messageserver for _tsystem ‘S4H’ not found – check spelling and/or configuration

    Fehlt ein Eintrag bei den drivers?

    Danke für einen Hinweis.

      • Vielen Dank für die rasche Antwort.

        Wenn ich das korrekt verstehen dann sind die Backend Verbindungen diejenigen die bei uns im System jeweils LOCAL_RFC, LOCAL_HTTP, LOCAL_HTTPS heissen.

        Ohne diese Verbindungen laufen ohnehin die Fioris nicht, daran kann es meiner Meinung nicht liegen.

        Gruss Diego

  • Hallo Sandra

    Ich habe die Einstellungen berücksichtigt. Nun kann ich die Transaktion direkt aufgerufen werden. Danke sehr.

    Ich habe aber noch ein Problem. Bei der Transaktion CJ20N Project Builder. In dieser Transaktion können die GANTT Diagramme nicht aufgerufen werden. Mitte Januar war ich in der SAP Schulung S4120 und da konnte ich via Business Client mit dem Launchpad die Transaktion mit den GANTT Diagrammen aufrufen.

    Haben Sie noch einen entsprechenden Hinweis vielleicht? Was muss dazu noch berücksichtigt werden.

    Auszug Fehlermeldung:

    Initializing of graphics for HTML is not supported in the SAP GUI

    Message no. CJ825

    Diagnosis

    If you call transactions containing graphics with a SAP GUI for the JAVA or HTML environment, it could result in a short dump.

    This can occur if the graphic component is not available for the corresponding platform, or if the embedding of the graphic component for Windows has been optimized and therefore can’t be used on other platforms.

    Graphics that do not run within the screen are available in the SAP GUI for the JAVA environment  – however, you cannot call them up using the SAP GUI for the HTML environment.

    You can display presentation graphics embedded in the screen by using a IGS (Internet Graphics Server). This works from release 4.6C (backend) on.

    The same goes for networks and Gantt charts, if the following prerequisites have been fulfilled:

    • The application was converted after 4.6B.
    • The graphnic takes up the entire screen.

    The following applications are not executable (neither in the SAP GUI for JAVA environment nor in the SAP GUI for the HTML environment) from release 4.6 on:

    • Project System:
      • Calling the project planning board directly (CJ2B, CJ2C, CJ27)
      • Calling the simulation directly (CJV1, CJV2, CJV3)
      • Calling the project planning board indirectly using the Project Builder (CJ20N)
      • Calling the project planning board indirectly using structure planning (CJ20)
    • Workflow (SWDD)

    Procedure

    If you require graphics for this transaction, use a Windows frontend.
