Alternative Gantt Chart based on SAPUI5 Technology
With this feature, you can replace the Gantt chart based on Java Plug-In technology by an alternative Gantt chart based on SAPUI5 technology. Due to the deprecation and removal of the Java Plug-In from recent Java Development Kit (JDK) versions, you may need to activate this feature to continue using Gantt charts in the graphical view of your Project Management applications.
