The migration tool for the Web Application Designer is an auxiliary tool for migrating Web templates with SAP BW 3.x format to SAP NetWeaver 7.0 format.


The migration tool is part of the Web Application Designer. You can call it from the menu bar in the Web Application Designer by choosing Tools → Migration Tool.


The migration tool helps you to migrate Web templates from SAP BW 3.x format to SAP NetWeaver 7.0 format. During this migration, the parameters that were inserted into the Web template with SAP BW 3.x format are converted into the Web template format for SAP NetWeaver 7.0.

The five main steps for this migration are:

  1. Selecting a Web template of SAP BW 3.x format
  2. XML generation of the Web template
  3. Stylesheet-based automatic conversion of the generated XML into SAP NetWeaver 7.0 format.
  4. Manual correction (for example, subsequent correction of JavaScript functions) and changes in the XHTML view of the Web Application Designer
  5. Saving the Web template after successful migration
