Integrating OpenCms into SAP NetWeaver

Track: Technical
Speaker: Dimitry Surkov (SuraSystems)

Abstract

NetWeaver is the newest platform of SAP which brings modern web technologies into traditional SAP ERP offering. One of the key applications within this suite of enterprise portal components is meant to provide a single point of entry for the entire SAP landscape. However it lacks the kingpin feature of such a system - web capable content management system.

In this session we will show a way of deploying an OpenCms solution into the SAP NetWeaver platform.

This includes integrating the SAP User Management Engine (SAP UME) with the authentication mechanism of OpenCms. SAP Knowledge Management is being used to provide the navigation structure and contents of the web site. Moreover, we will show how TREX (Text Retrival and Extraction) as a standard search engine of SAP can be used to index contents of OpenCms.
