How will NetWeaver work with legacy solutions?
SAP has a strong commitment to making NetWeaver the be-all and end-all of software architectures, which means it has to play well with legacy solutions. There are a lot of issues to consider in the integration of NetWeaver to the world of legacy applications, however, and SAP's commitment won't be realized overnight. The key NetWeaver components like Exchange Infrastructure, Master Data Management, Business Warehouse, the Portal and the Web Applications Server are designed to facilitate the integration of legacy systems. And depending on the requirement, they do a decent job today and will do a better job tomorrow. But if you're looking for an easy way to wrap your legacy systems in some Web services wrapper and use them in a NetWeaver-driven services architecture, that's much more of a "tomorrow" function than a "today" function.
