This is an installation guide explaining all the steps needed (in full detail) how to install the SAP Netweaver 7.0 - Java Trial portal, and how to get the ESS (Employee Self Services) Business Pages running inside the portal.
You can find all provided information in other manuals, too. But it is extremely hard for beginners, who just want to make an installation for evaluation purposes, to search all the needed documents, to figure out if they are still valid or outdated, to learn all the SAP terminology, to determine which installation steps are needed and in which orde, and to estimate how long the whole installation process will take.
With this walkthrough by example beginners are able to do the configuration easily and quickly.
