Lab 1 – Creating a Web Page Purpose This lab provides the student an introduction to some basic web page design concepts. Students will use Microsoft FrontPage 2003 to create web page content and edit the properties of each.

Topics Covered This lab will cover … •

Page (Document) Sections



HTML Tag Syntax



Changing Properties (font types/colors, background colors, etc.)

Procedure 1. Start Microsoft FrontPage – the instructor will be able to guide you to its location on the training computer. 2. We’ll begin by creating a template page that we’ll use for creating additional pages. Templates allow you to maintain the consistency of web pages on a web site. If a new page isn’t already opened, from the icon bar menu, select the new page icon.

6. You should note 4 tabs at the bottom of your new page – labeled Design, Split, Code and Preview. Select the Code tab and review the code that was entered by FrontPage. Notice the HTML tags prefixed with the tag. The page editor inserted these entries into the page source. Since they are contained in the header section of the page between the and tags, this information is not actually displayed on the page. tags contain information regarding the web editing software, language, and web site theme that are applied to the web page. The text in between the and tags makes up a string that is displayed at the top of the clients web browser. We will customize the title on every new page that we create in this Lab. Enter an interesting title for your template page.

©2006 SAP Americas. All Rights Reserved.

Page 5

SAP xMII Training 7. Since we will be using this page as a template for the other pages we will create, we will define the properties (e.g. fonts, colors, etc.) that we want. In the tag: - Add a background color to the page by including the bgcolor parameter. - Setup the font properties for the text within the body of the page by adding the tag with the parameters (face, color, size) you want. Don’t forget the closing tag.

SAP xMII Training 8. Switch back to the Design tab and view the effects of the changes to your web page.

9. Now right-click on the page (in Normal view). In the pop-up window, select Page Properties… This will allow you to set some more document defaults within the Template page. Review the tabs and the properties in each. You will note the Page Properties is an easy place to change the title, background color, fonts, etc.

Page 8

SAP xMII Training

11. Now let’s create our other web pages from the BasePage.htm template. We’ll start with a page that will be the header for our web site. Modify the BasePage.htm by changing the text (example: “My SAP xMII Page”), background color, fonts, etc. Use your imagination. When you are done making your changes to the header page, Save As Header.htm.

HINT:

When saving the page, use the Change title… button to modify the Page title.

12. Repeat the above step to create additional pages for the Table of Contents (TOC.htm) and two new base pages (Page1.htm and Page2.htm).

Lab 2 – Images and Image Maps Purpose This lab will introduce the student to the basics of adding web graphics to a web page. We will investigate images (graphics) and image maps (hotspots or hyperlink regions) that can be used as part of a web site navigation system.

Topics Covered This lab will cover … •

Adding web images or graphics



Image pathing and sizing



Creating / Editing Image Maps

Procedure 1. We’ll begin by inserting a graphic ‘divider’ to separate the web pages header information from the rest of the page. Open the Header.htm page and place the cursor at the bottom of the page. From the Insert menu, select the Picture\Clip Art option. Select Go to view the clip art currently installed on your server.

©2006 SAP Americas. All Rights Reserved.

Page 11

SAP xMII Training 2. Search through the available “border” clipart images and find one that you like. Click on the image and select Insert to add it into your web page document.

3. Switch to the CODE tab and note the syntax of the tag we just added. You should see something similar to the following… The src parameter contains the image file path. Because we have not yet saved our page, the image file is currently stored in a temporary file location. When we save the page, you will be prompted to specify another file storage location. We will save the file and note the new image later in this lab. You should also note the height and width parameters. By default, these parameters are set in pixels, resulting in a fixed image size, however they can also be set as a percentage of the page, resulting in an image size relative to the size of the page. 4. Modify the width parameter of your image to 90%. To see the effect of the new setting, switch to the Preview tab and resize the width of your web page. As you resize you should see the width of the image scale with the page. This functionality is useful when developing sites for multiple resolutions.

Page 12

SAP xMII Training

5. Now Save the Header.htm page. You will be prompted to save the embedded image to a location on the server. The location where you save the file will determine the final path setting for the image (ie: src parameter). The image path is saved relative to the source HTML page.

Example 1: If you save the image in the same folder as the HTML page, the image tag should look like this… Since the image file is in the same folder as the HTML page, no additional path information is required in the src parameter.

©2006 SAP Americas. All Rights Reserved.

Page 13

SAP xMII Training

Example 2: If you chose to store the image file in an alternate location, the image tag should look something like this… Since the image file in this example was not stored in the same location as the HTML page, additional path information was included in the src parameter. The path defines the location of the image file relative to the HTML page. In this example, the image file named j157996.gif is stored up one folder level (represented by ..) from the Header.htm page, in the /images folder. 6. Next we’re going to add another image that we will use to navigate our web site. Open the TOC.htm page. From the Insert menu, select Picture\From File…., navigate to the Training folder and select the LinkMenu.gif file. Click OK.

7. We’ll add a few “hotspots” or “hyperlink regions” to the LinkMenu image for navigation. To do this, select the LinkMenu image. From the View menu, select Toolbars\Pictures to display the Picture Toolbar…

Hotspot Tools

©2006 SAP Americas. All Rights Reserved.

Page 14

SAP xMII Training 8. Select the Rectangular Hotspot tool and draw a rectangle around the “Link 1” text on the LinkMenu image. After drawing the rectangle, a dialog box will popup allowing you to enter a Hyperlink URL. Select the Page1.htm file from your training folder that you created earlier and click OK.

9. Switch to the Code tab and review the and the tags. You should see something that looks like this… The map tag can contain several area tags. The area tags contain the actual hotspot link information. The area tag includes parameters for the linked page (href), the shape of the hotspot, and the coordinates (cords) for the hotspot “touch” region. The coordinates are defined in X1, Y1, X2, Y2 sequence and use the top left corner of the image as the origin. The tag was also updated to include a new usemap parameter that references the tag that was just created.

Page 15

SAP xMII Training

10. Switch back to Normal view and add another rectangular hotspot region around “Link 2”. Create a hyperlink to Page2.htm. In the HTML view, you should note a new area tag has been added after the existing area tag, but before the tag. The final HTML code should look something like this… Save your TOC.htm page. 11. Open Page1.htm and enter any information that you want to be shown. Experiment with the formatting tools located on the toolbars. 12. Open Page2.htm and enter information regarding the author of the web site, credits to the instructor, etc…

Lab 3 – Tables Purpose Tables can be used to organize the layout of web pages. In this lab the student will learn how to add tables and become familiar with defining spacing, borders, background images, and hyper-linking cells.

Topics Covered This lab will cover the following topics… •

Table creation



Cell text justification



Table/Cell backgrounds



Hyper-Linking cells

Procedure 1. Open the Header.htm page and switch to the Normal view.

2. First, we’ll create a table that we’ll use for organizing the text in our title. Place the cursor in front of the title information on the page. From the Table menu, select Insert\Table…

©2006 SAP Americas. All Rights Reserved.

Page 17

SAP xMII Training 3. Create a 1 row by 2 column table and click OK to insert the table and close the dialog. The page should look similar to the following…

Switching to the Code tab, you will see the tag can contain many (table row) and (table data) tags. The number of pairs determine the number of rows in the table and the number of pairs determine the number of columns in the row. The information between the and the tags defines the cell contents. By default, FrontPage inserts   as a placeholder for the cell data. 4. Switch back to the Design view to modify the cell contents. Highlight and cut the title text on your page, then paste it in the first cell of the table. Add some additional text in the second cell.

Page 18

SAP xMII Training

5. You can change the settings of the entire table or of each individual cell by right-clicking and selecting either Table Properties… or Cell Properties… from the popup menu. This will display the dialog box…

HINT: Setting the Border Size to “0” will eliminate the appearance of the border so only the text will be displayed in the browser.

6. Open Page1.htm and add a 1-row x 2-column table at the top of the page. In the left cell, type the text “To TOC”. In the right cell type the text “To Page 2”. ©2006 SAP Americas. All Rights Reserved.

Page 19

SAP xMII Training 7. Next, we’ll create hyperlinks to both the TOC.htm and Page2.htm page. To create the hyperlink, highlight the appropriate text in the cell. From the Insert menu, select Hyperlink… to display the hyperlink dialog box, and then select the appropriate page you wish to hyperlink to. Click OK to complete.

8. Open up Page2.htm and repeat the table creation and hyperlink procedure (make sure you change the text in the right cell to “To Page 1”). **Hint: To change hyperlink color: from File menu choose properties, then choose the Background tab.

SAP xMII Training Lab 4 – Frames Purpose The student will explore the use of Frames in a web page. Frames can be used to organize the layout of your web site. A Frames page divides the browser window into different sections (e.g. frames), each of which can display it’s own page. We will create the ‘Home’ page for the web site.

Topics Covered This lab will cover the following topics… •

Creating a Frames page



Frame syntax



Creating Hyperlinks to target frames



Procedure 1. First we’ll create the Frames page. From the File menu, select New > Page…. to open the New page dialog box. Select the More page templates option, then Frames Pages tab (note the variety of templates you can choose from). Click on the Banner and Contents page and then click OK to create the new Frames page.

©2006 SAP Americas. All Rights Reserved.

Page 21

SAP xMII Training Your new page should look like this…

2. Next we’ll need to Set Initial Page… for each frame section. In the Banner Frame (top section), click the Set Initial Page… button and set the page to the Header.htm webpage from your training folder. NOTE: The full path to the page will be shown in the URL. This will be adjusted when the page is saved much like the image file path.

©2006 SAP Americas. All Rights Reserved.

Page 22

SAP xMII Training 3. Repeat this step to set the Contents Frame (left frame) initial page to TOC.htm and the Target Frame (right frame) initial page to Page1.htm. After setting the initial pages, the page should look something like this…

4. Before we save our file, let’s review the HTML code generated for the frames pages. Switch to the Frames Page Code tab. It should look like this… This page uses frames, but your browser doesn't support them. Note the frame name and target parameter values. These will be important when creating hyperlinks.

©2006 SAP Americas. All Rights Reserved.

Page 23

SAP xMII Training 5. Now we can save the page as Main.htm in the your training folder. 6. Switch back to the Frames Page HTML view and note the modified paths to the initial HTML pages (defined in the src parameter). This page uses frames, but your browser doesn't support them.

Lab 7 – SAP xMII Installation Guide Introduction One of the key benefits of the SAP xApp Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence (SAP xMII) is its ultra-thin client architecture that requires zero client administration. SAP xMII clients require a standard Web browser only which minimizes installation and management. No SAP xMII software needs to be installed on any of the client systems. Setup and installation of SAP xMII is performed entirely on your Web server. The client browser does require that a Java Runtime Environment (JRE) plugin to be installed in order to use the full set of user interface objects. The supported JRE for a client machine is version 1.4.2 from Sun Microsystems, Inc.® (the latest release of 1.4.2 is recommended for the client). Note: It is not recommended that the server application be installed on a server with a JSDK/JRE version greater than 1.4.2_07. This SAP xMII installation is optimized to support Microsoft® Internet Information Services (IIS) on Microsoft Windows® 2003; however, Microsoft Windows® 2000 Server may also be used. Support for any nonWindows platforms and/or support for any servlet engine other than that supplied with the product requires special licensing arrangements. There is no end user support for these other platforms. SPC data analysis requires a database to be installed and configured. The recommended configuration is to install Microsoft SQL Server directly on the Web server. Note: You do not need a database if you are not using SPC data analysis. The core SAP xMII functionality stores its configuration data in operating system files. The SPC data analysis option benefits from a high performance CPU. SAP xMII includes an add-in for Microsoft FrontPage® and one for Macromedia® Dreamweaver® that enables the use of these tools as a unified development environment for your SAP xMII application. Refer to the Installing the FrontPage Add-In section of this topic for more information. If you are using Macromedia® Dreamweaver®, refer to the Installing the Dreamweaver Add-In section of this topic for more information.

The required system resources vary based on your applications; however, for sizing purposes, an estimated 2-4 MB per simultaneously connected user can be used. Virtually any Web browser, including Microsoft Internet Explorer, Netscape® Navigator, Netscape® Communicator, Opera®, and Mozilla® Firefox®, can be used with SAP xMII. We recommend that you use the most recent versions of these products. As stated above, the client should have the Sun JRE plug-in installed to the browser. The Sun® Java Runtime Environment (JRE) must be installed on the server prior to the SAP xMII installation (It is recommended that you download and install the full JSDK, instructions can be found below). Note: Turn off the Java automatic update mechanism via the Java Plug-in Control Panel. It is strongly recommended, although not required by SAP xMII, that the local volume where you are installing SAP xMII be formatted with the NTFS file system. This will enable a high degree of security control over your Web page content via direct integration with the Windows NT or Windows 2000 and IIS security and authentication subsystems. If you will be using the SAP xMII FrontPage add-in, you must be running Microsoft FrontPage 2000 and must have the FrontPage 2000 server extensions installed on your Web server. Refer to the FrontPage section for detailed instructions on how to install these products.

SAP xMII Training System Installation Prerequisites You will need to obtain a license file in order to run SAP xMII. You may request a license file at http://support.lighthammer.com, or through [email protected] See the license manager section of the help for more information. The Sun JSDK 1.4.2_07 must also be downloaded and installed on the server prior to installing SAP xMII. You can download the JSDK directly from http://java.sun.com/products/archive/j2se/1.4.2_07/index.html. Press on the "Download J2SDK" link on this page, save it to disk, and install the JSDK. A link to this site is also available on the xMIIInstall.htm on the root directory of the installation media (see below step by step instructions for more information).

Windows NT You must install a Web server prior to installing SAP xMII. Microsoft Web Server 4.0 is available as a free add-on to Windows NT Server or Workstation as part of the Windows NT 4.0 Option Pack. You can download the option pack or get it on CD-ROM from your local Microsoft reseller. If you are installing SAP xMII on an Windows NT Server system, you will install IIS 4.0. If you are installing SAP xMII on a Windows NT Workstation machine, you will install Personal Web Server (PWS) 4.0. Detailed information on installing IIS is provided with the Windows NT Option Pack. During the NT Option Pack installation it is important to select the Custom installation option and verify that the following components are selected for install: •

Internet Information Server (IIS)



Internet Service Manager

If you will be using ODBC data sources, it is suggested that you obtain the latest Microsoft Data Access Components from the Microsoft Data Access Web site and install them on your Web server. Note that these are not required to access Microsoft SQL Server or Oracle, as SAP xMII will install direct, high-performance drivers for these databases. If you are running Windows NT 4.0 and Internet Explorer 4.x on your Web server, it is recommended that you update certain system files before installing SAP xMII. It is advised that you run a Windows Update and install all recommended updates before proceeding. Note: Installation of IIS may cause the removal or overwrite of some of the Windows NT Service Pack components. It is recommended that you reinstall Service Pack 6a or greater on NT systems, prior to proceeding to the installation of the SAP xMII application. ©2006 SAP Americas. All Rights Reserved.

Page 41

SAP xMII Training Windows 2000 If you are installing SAP xMII on an MS Windows 2000 Server system, you will install IIS 5.0. If you are installing SAP xMII on an MS Windows 2000 Professional system, then you will install Personal Web Server (PWS) version 5.0. Microsoft Windows 2000 will typically install the IIS 5.0 components you will need to run SAP xMII. The Microsoft Web servers for Windows 2000 systems are available as part of the installation process of the operating system. If you already have the operating system installed, without the Web server, you may run the additional setup required by choosing "Add/Remove Windows Components" after starting the Add/Remove Programs service available within Control Panel (Internet Information Services (IIS) is the required component). If you will be using ODBC data sources, it is suggested that you obtain the latest Microsoft Data Access Components from the Microsoft Data Access Web site and install them on your Web server. Note that these are not required to access Microsoft SQL Server or Oracle, as SAP xMII will install direct, high-performance drivers for these databases. Note: Installation of IIS may overwrite or cause the removal of some of the Windows 2000 service pack components. It is recommended that you reinstall Service Pack 4 or greater on Windows 2000 systems, prior to proceeding to the installation of the SAP xMII application.

Windows 2003 By default, Windows 2003 Server has certain locked capabilities that must be changed after SAP xMII installation in order for SAP xMII to run. You must create a virtual directory in IIS with the proper privileges so that the servlet engine will run. Complete the Additional Steps for Windows 2003 section after the Step-by-step Installation.

Windows XP Professional Microsoft Windows XP Professional is not a supported server platform for production environments. It should be used for demonstrations and limited evaluations only. If you are installing SAP xMII on a Microsoft Windows XP Professional system, you will install IIS 5.1. IIS is not installed by default with the operating system. You will have to go to the Add/Remove Windows Components section and choose to install it. Select the World Wide Web Service and press Details, then check the Scripts Virtual Directory.

SAP xMII Training •

When installing IIS, you MUST do a custom install and choose to install the Scripts Virtual Directory. Without this virtual directory SAP xMII WILL NOT run. Additionally, if you have installed any Windows XP Service Packs, it will be necessary to reinstall them after adding IIS.



If you are using SQL Server 2000, you should have Windows XP service pack 2 and SQL Server 2000 service pack 3 installed.

Step-by-step Installation Note: If an error occurs during the install, please review the install logs for more information.

1. Make sure you are logged on to the server machine with an Administrator account. 2. If you are running Windows NT, stop the Web server and IIS via the Control Panel's Services applet. If you are running Windows 2000 or Windows 2003, stop the Web server and IIS via Start | Programs | Administrative Tools | Services by stopping the IIS Admin Service. This process automatically stops dependent services such as the World Wide Web Publishing service, FTP service, and SMTP service. 3. If you have physical CD media, insert the SAP xMII CD into your CD-ROM drive. Auto-run opens the SAP xMII Installation page in your default browser. If you downloaded the software from the SAP Service Marketplace, extract the downloaded archive to a local directory and then open the xMIIInstall.htm page in the chosen directory. Note: If you are using physical media and auto-run fails, you can open the xMIIInstall.htm page from the CD root to install SAP xMII. A link to the Sun Java 2 SDK installation is also available on this page if you did not yet download and install it. Once the JSDK is installed, you can run SETUP.EXE directly from the install folder.

Installing the FrontPage Add-in The SAP xMII add-in for Microsoft FrontPage 2000 and Microsoft FrontPage 2002 is installed in the \Lighthammer\Illuminator\Wizards directory on the drive on which you installed the SAP xMII application. In order to use the add-in, it must be installed on each PC that will be running FrontPage. On computers other than the Web server, a Web package installation is available on the SAP xMII Web server: http:///Lighthammer/WizardInstall/IlluminatorWizard.exe. You can save the file locally and run it, or you can select Open and run it directly from the Web server. Note: Windows 2003 Server requires the FrontPage 2002 Server extensions. Once the file is installed (the default is :\Lighthammer\Illuminator\Wizards), open FrontPage. Select the /Tools/Add-Ins menu option. If you already had a previous version of the Add-in installed (prior to Illuminator 9.5) highlight the SAP xMII Wizard selection and press the Remove button. If this is a new install, skip to the enable step below.

©2006 SAP Americas. All Rights Reserved.

Page 64

SAP xMII Training To enable the new add-in, click the Add button, and browse to the location where the Illum95FPWizard.dll file resides (default is :\Lighthammer\Illuminator\Wizards). After clicking the OK button, you should see the SAP xMII add-in installed as shown in the following dialog:

The add-in is automatically loaded each time FrontPage is started. The add-in includes the SAP xMII Object, the Script Assistant, and links to the SAP xMII Template Editor and the System Administration Editor.

Installing the Dreamweaver Add-in The SAP xMII add-in for Macromedia Dreamweaver is installed in the \Lighthammer\Illuminator\Wizards directory on the drive on which you installed the SAP xMII products. NOTE: In order to use the add-in, this file must be installed on each PC that will be running Dreamweaver. On computers other than the Web server, a Web package installation is available from the SAP xMII Web server: http:///Lighthammer/WizardInstall/IlluminatorWizard.exe Use the following steps to enable the Dreamweaver add-in: 1. Copy the C:\Lighthammer\Illuminator\Wizards\IllumDWWizard.dll file to your local installation of the Dreamweaver MX program, JSExtensions directory (the default is C:\Program Files\Macromedia\Dreamweaver MX\Configuration\JSExtensions). 2. Copy the C:\Lighthammer\Illuminator\Wizards\Illuminator Object.htm file to C:\Program Files\Macromedia\Dreamweaver MX\Configuration\Commands. 3. Copy the C:\Lighthammer\Illuminator\Wizards\Illuminator Script Assistant.htm file to C:\Program Files\Macromedia\Dreamweaver MX\Configuration\Commands.

©2006 SAP Americas. All Rights Reserved.

Page 65

SAP xMII Training You should then be able to go into Dreamweaver and find the links at the bottom of the Command menu. If selecting SAP xMII Object does not display the plug-in, open a command prompt and type "cd\Lighthammer\Illuminator\Wizards" to navigate to the folder where the DLLs are located. Then type "regsvr32 IllumDWWizardGUI.dll" which should register the dll. Dreamweaver should then prompt you for the SAP xMII server name or internet protocol (IP) address (it defaults to localhost) when calling up the plug-in; this is similar to the standalone version of the plug-in. You can then configure Dreamweaver for editing SAP xMII Report pages (.irpt).

Initialization By default, SAP xMII starts up (initializes) when the NT Service starts up. There is a time delay for the initialization in order for various system services to start up as before SAP xMII initializes. It is important that the timing is correct. The default delay is 30 seconds. This can easily be changed if it is causing problems. A symptom of this problem is a class not found error in the Servlet Exec logs, because not all systems were initialized before SAP xMII was started, causing some paths to be incorrect. Until the delay time is complete, it is recommended that you do not attempt to query SAP xMII. This includes accessing the SAP xMII main menu. Keep in mind that the delay is in addition to the delay caused by the NT Service start up time. See the Server Logging section to see how to access the Servlet Exec Logs. See the section on SAP xMII Initialization in the system configuration guide for more information on this topic.

Time Synchronization of Servers and Clients In order for SAP xMII to operate correctly, the system clocks on the Web server, data servers, and client browsers should be maintained in reasonably close synchronization. In the case where other applications on the Web server prevent the enabling of automatic daylight savings time adjustment, you must configure the time zone to use the option that does not include the auto adjust checkbox [e.g., use the (GMT-05:00) Bogota, Lima, Quito time zone instead of the (GMT-05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada) time zone].

Installation Log Files There are three installation logs created when installing SAP xMII. If you experience problems during your installation or have questions about installation locations, you can review these log files. •

SAP_xMII_Install_date_time.log is an overall general log file for the installation located in the Lighthammer\Logs directory.
