SAP Knowledge Warehouse Architecture

SAP Knowledge Warehouse provides you with the technical infrastructure for administering documentation, training material, and manuals. The following picture shows the components the SAP Knowledge Warehouse is based on:

 

 

To understand the communication between the components, let's go through the display scenario with the browser:

  1. If a user wants to display content in the browser, this request is passed through the Internet Knowledge Servlet (IKS) to the SAP NW ABAP system. An SAP NW Java system is required for the IKS.
  2. The Knowledge Provider (KPro) uses the information provided about the content to be displayed to resolve the context in the ABAP system. As a result, a URL is provided for access to content stored using a Max DB/SAP DB instance on the content server.
  3. This content is passed through the SAP NW ABAP system to the IKS. The HTML page is then formatted there, and finally displayed in the browser for the end user.
  4. If a search of the content stored in SAP KW is started, the KPro in the SAP NW ABAP system takes on the communication with the search engine (TREX).
