Thanks for your inputs.
This basically talks about the new features and enhancements. I am also looking more towards finding if there are any changes to the Architecture/Runtime components with this new version, sort of a new architecture diagram??
Refer: http://service.sap.com/instguides-> SAP Netweaver-> SAP Netweaver 7.3-> Installation-> Installation and Master guide.
Also, Hope the below links help:

Hi Sushil, Soujanya
Thanks for your inputs. But I could not find anything which points to a new architecture, or changes to the Portal Framework.
Most of these links talk about the new features, and other enhancements.
I am interested to know if SAP has done any changes to the Portal core architecture itself or to the Web AS.
I couldn't find anything which points to a major changes in the "BASE" architecture. Correct me if I am wrong.
There are tons of new features and functionality I know, but when it comes to the J2EE/Portal architecture - I didn't seem to find much differences expect Java6/no SDM/no Java dispatcher.
Again, pls correct if its not right.
The below guide may help you to differentiate between EP 7.0 and EP 7.3.
You are considering Java 6 (with JVM from SAP), JEE 5, SAML, AJAX / New Singature Design, new way of deploying and transporting content and so on not a major change?
What do you consider a major change? What new kind of architecture were you expecting? Do you have anything special in mind?
As I told, I was more looking at if there any changes made to the underlying framework/j2ee architecture which I doubt is the case.
The things you have mentioned, 'I' would like to call them a +Functional Overhauling + except support Java6/JEE5 which is definitely a big change. Most of the other things are new features, but again this is just my way of looking at things.
Hope this clarifies.
The other features are functional changes (ex: transports, WPC, Wiki), but the above are changes to the underlying framework.
So, what do you consider an architectural change? What did you expect?
