Configuring Support for HTML5Locate this document in the navigation structure


The framework page for portal on device is based on HTML5. By default, SAP NetWeaver Portal does not support HTML5. To use portal on device, you must enable support for HTML5 in SAP NetWeaver Administrator by setting the value of the html5.compliant property to iViewDependent .

  • You are assigned the Super Admin role or the NWA_SUPERADMIN role

  1. In SAP NetWeaver Administrator, navigate to Start of the navigation path Configuration Next navigation step Infrastructure Next navigation step Java System Properties End of the navigation path.

  2. In the Details table, select the Services tab.

  3. Search for portal and select Portal Runtime Container Extension .

  4. In the Extended Details table, search for html5 and set the value of the html5.compliant property to iViewDependent .

  5. Choose Save .


The iViewDependent value works together with the property in the PortalApp.xml file. When developing an application, you set the value of this property to true to define that a specific iView is HTML5 compliant. This setting adds the <!DOCTYPE> declaration, which informs the Web browser that this is an HTML5 file.
