To help you convert Web templates of SAP NetWeaver BW.3x format to Web templates of SAP NetWeaver 7.0 format and thus migrate them, a migration tool is provided in the Web Application Designer.
If you want to migrate Web templates with SAP BW 3.x format to SAP NetWeaver 7.0, proceed as follows:
You can also select the Web template using the search function in the open dialog or by using the role view.
Note that, for technical reasons, Web templates cannot always be converted automatically. See also the section Manual Assistance for XML/XHTML Conversion.
If you did not select Generate Input XML Automatically (If Possible) or if automatic conversion was not possible and you selected Start Conversion, the Manual Assistance for XML/XHTML Conversiondialog box appears.
In this dialog box, you can manually edit the XML document that is required to migrate the Web template:
You have migrated a Web template with SAP BW 3.x format to SAP NetWeaver 7.0.
We recommend that you execute the migrated Web template and test it functionally. We also recommend that you check whether certain Web template elements in the Web template (such as commands for Web items or data providers) can be created more easily or clearly using the functions from the Web Application Designer from SAP NetWeaver 7.0 (for example, using the command wizard) than is possible with an automated and context-free migration. For functionality reasons and reasons of completeness, we recommend that you generate such elements using the Web Application Designer from SAP NetWeaver 7.0, particularly if these elements could not be converted completely during automatic migration.
