SAP NetWeaver 7.2 includes both the SAP BW 3.x and the SAP NetWeaver 7.2 versions of the BEx Broadcaster. You start the SAP BW 3.x version from the SAP BW 3.x BEx tools or from the context menu of Web applications that run in the SAP BW 3.x runtime. This also applies to the SAP NetWeaver 7.2 version: You start the BEx Broadcaster from the relevant BEx tools and the context menu from SAP NetWeaver 7.2.
You can still maintain existing broadcasting settings from SAP BW 3.x and execute them with the BEx Broadcaster from SAP BW 3.x.
General Practices with Migration
In the BEx Broadcaster from SAP NetWeaver 7.2, you can maintain settings for various objects as follows:
You can maintain settings for all queries in the system. However, you must re-create them; you cannot use existing settings from SAP B 3.x.
You can maintain settings for all Web applications created with the BEx Web Application Designer from SAP NetWeaver 7.2 (regardless of whether they were migrated from SAP BW 3.x, or newly created). You cannot maintain settings for Web applications from SAP BW 3.x.
You can use the settings from SAP BW 3.x without changing them. There were no relevant changes in this area.
