2681914 - Functional parity in Web Intelligence dHTML and Java Applet interfaces


  • As some browsers do not support Java anymore (KBA 2656446), or to avoid Java version update, the functional parity between Web Intelligence Java and dHTML is seen as a priority.
  • Since SAP BI 4.2, to avoid creating new gaps, all new features introduced in Web Intelligence are supported in both dHTML and Java interfaces.
  • Starting from SAP BI 4.2 SP3, the features that are the most requested - and were only existing in Java Applet previously - have been implemented in Web Intelligence dHTML interface as well.
  • This KBA doesn't intend to describe the full list of functionalities, but only the major ones.



  • SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence Platform 4.2 SP3+
  • Web Intelligence dHTML interface
  • Web Intelligence Java Applet 


SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence platform 4.2 ; SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence platform 4.3
