1.. The right place for this discussion is in NetWeaver space http://scn.sap.com/thread/1170620
2. This is basic question.. please always check BRM Space before posting
BRFplus- can be launch by any transaction 'BRFplus' or 'BRF+'
SAP NetWeaver BRM (Java based rule engine) - by SAP NetWeaver Developer Studio
Thank you very much for the response.
I think the key words I used for searching might not be right, so I didn't see the dual or single stack checking thread.
Any chance you know if BRM is embedded into PI 7.3? or still only available in NetWeaver Developer Studio which is a separate intallation and the same as PI 7.1?
If you are looking for PI and BRM together in one installation, you should use NetWeaver 731 (currently in Ramp Up) and install the Process Orchestration installation type. This is java only engine, with PI, BPM and BRM in one.
I think you are getting confused here.
Back to your main question "We just upgraded to PI 7.3" I guess at this point you already have
software Component "SAP_BASIS" thats nothing but Basis Component.
How to check-> Logon to SAP System > System (Menu bar) > Status > Click on "Component Information"..You should see SAP_BASIS.
If its there then you can use BRM (both rule engine),Workflow and PI also.
@Expert-Please correct me if I am wrong here..
Thanks so much for the response. I started learning PI three months ago, I apologize for asking these basic questions.
Yes, I do see "SAP_BASIS" in the "Component Information", which means we do have BRM capabilities. But I still couldn't find the Transaction code to get into BRM, it should be a T code for it, right?
Tcodes are for ABAP. URLs are for Java.
If you can login to PI using SAPLogon and go to menu System > Status then you are on a dual stack (ABAP + Java system). From ABAP you can get to BRFplus using transaction BRFplus - this starts a webdynpro application in the web browser.
SAP NetWeaver BRM is on the Java stack.
If you open the home page http://<host>:<port> of the Java stack, you should see a link to System Information which will bring you to a browser screen showing all the usage types installed on that system. To have BRM you need all of the BRMS usage types installed (e.g. BRMS-BASE etc.).
The design time of BRM is via the Eclipse-based SAP NetWeaver Developer Studio (NWDS). The runtime is on the Java server. Rules projects are initially created in NWDS. Once created they can be maintained using rules manager http://<host>:<port>/rulesmanager which will exist if the BRMS usage types have been installed on your Java stack.
Hope that helps.
