Note Language: English Version: 5 Validity:
Valid Since 15.09.2010

As announced with SAP note 1046184, the Web SAP Console will no longer be supported for SAP systems based on SAP Netweaver 7.01 and higher (please note that SAP Console as a technology to link character based devices to SAP systems is still supported). SAP instead recommends to use ITSmobile a technology based on ITS (ITS is SAPs standard technology to bring applications based on ABAP dynpros to the web). This note should give customers information about the capabilities of both technologies.

Other terms Reason and Prerequisites Solution Support & further development:
ITS as a integrated part of SAP Netweaver Application Server ABAP is longterm supported. With new releases of SAP Netweaver, ITS is continuously improved. Web SAP Console is in maintainance mode and can only be used with SAP Systems up to SAP Netweaver 7.0. No further improvements are planned.

ITS as an integrated functionality of SAP Netweaver Application Server does not require a separate installation. Having a SAP system based on Netweaver you already have the ITS service avaiable. ITS supports all hardware and operating system platforms supported by SAP Netweaver. Web SAP Console require a separate installation and hardware. It is limited to Windows Server 32Bit.

By using a template technology ITS supports the full customizing of the HTML representation of each screen (function key mapping, colors, fonts,...). Using a generator which is part of the ABAP development workbench (SE80) the templates have to be generated once. This allows customers to work with any kind of mobile device that comes with a web browser. It is not required that SAP supports the device. Web SAP Console is delivered with a set of predefined displayer DLLs which cannot be modified.
