Introduction
What is CTS+ : CTS (Change and Transport System) is the transport capability of the SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP. This capability has been enhanced and now, the transport of non-ABAP objects is supported as well. The +' or enhanced' has been added to express this. The Change and Transport System (CTS) helps you to organize development projects in ABAP Workbench and in Customizing, and then transport the changes between the SAP systems in your system landscape. As well as ABAP objects, you can also transport Java objects (J2EE, JEE) and SAP-specific non-ABAP technologies (such as Web Dynpro Java or SAP NetWeaver Portal) in your landscape. The enhanced Change and Transport System (CTS+) enables you to transport Java objects and SAPrelated non-ABAP applications in your system landscape, alongside ABAP objects. You can also administer non-ABAP systems in a CTS transport domain in SAP NetWeaver Application Server ABAP. What are the prerequisites for using CTS+? : CTS+ is available with AS ABAP and AS Java from SAP NetWeaver SPS 12 onwards (both stacks are needed). We recommend that you start using CTS+ with SPS 14. This is the requirement for the system which is used for transporting. The applications that are to be used with CTS+ have very different requirements.

SAP Applications supported by CTS+


Transportable Objects You can use CTS+ to transport the following additional objects:

Java-based and J2EE-based objects:


Software Component Archives (SCAs) Enterprise Application Archives (EARs) Software Deployment Archives (SDAs) Objects from the SAP NetWeaver usage type SAP NetWeaver Portal (EP) Enterprise Portal Archives (EPAs) Enterprise Portal Applications (PARs) Knowledge Management objects (KM Content and KM Configurations) Non-ABAP objects from the SAP NetWeaver usage type PI (Process Integration): Integration Builder objects (TPZs) System Landscape Directory content objects (products, software components, technical systems, and business systems) You can transport these objects together with ABAP objects in a single transport request. When you run imports in Transport Management System (TMS), the system performs the appropriate deployment step automatically.

How does CTS+ work within the different applications?


There are several How-To Guides and sections on SAP Help Portal which explain how CTS+ works and what is the scope of the transports. You can find the how to guides on SDN by searching for CTS+ and the application name. Please make sure that the guide you are using fits with your release. SAP NetWeaver Portal (EP) Close coupling is described on the SAP Help Portal and is available since SAP NetWeaver 7.0 SPS 13. A How-To guide describes the configuration steps. Loose coupling possible from SAP NetWeaver 2004 SPS 9 onwards. Knowledge Management (KM) Close coupling for Documents is available since SAP NetWeaver 7.0 SPS 14 Lose coupling for KM documents is also available for SAP NetWeaver 7.0 SPS 13 if you use the Transport of KM Content provided with SAP NetWeaver 7.0 SPS 13. Close coupling for KM Configurations is provided with SAP NetWeaver 7.0 SPS 14. This delivery contains a small bug and works only with a fixed user. Take a look at SAP Note 1291022 to learn about the patch that you need for your SP to fix the issue. Loose coupling with earlier releases is only possible via file system transport and would require a manual import. SAP NetWeaver Exchange Infrastructure (XI / PI) Information on functionality and appropriate releases is provided on SAP Help Portal. Here on SDN, you can find a HowTo Guide for SPS 14 and a HowTo Guide for SPS 13 of PI.

System Landscape Directory (SLD) Integration of CTS+ in SLD is available since SAP NetWeaver 7.0 SPS 13. Check SAP note 1101844 for details on features and limitations for specific Service Packs. SAP NetWeaver Development Infrastructure (NWDI) Integration of CTS+ in NWDI is available since SAP NetWeaver 7.0 SPS 14. SAP NetWeaver Master Data Management (MDM) Loose coupling is planned to be provided with SAP NetWeaver Master Data Management 7.1 and SAP enhancement package 1 for SAP NetWeaver 7.0 for the CTS system. SAP NetWeaver Business Intelligence (BI) If you would like to transport BI objects, this is either a question of transporting Portal content or ABAP objects. There is no special guide for BI available, so please take a look at the objects that you'd like to transport and use the appropriate guide or help pages.

Loose coupling vs Close coupling


Loose Coupling and Close Coupling (or tight integration) describe the relation between the TMS system and the application on the export side. Close coupling means that you can find mechanisms within an application (e.g. SAP NetWeaver Portal or SAP NetWeaver Development Infrastructure to attach a transportable object (e.g. epa, sda,...) to a transport request on the CTS system. Loose coupling means that the application does not provide a direct integration mechanism. You would start an export within the application, download the export result and attach it manually to a transport request via the Transport organizer Web UI by uploading it again. In most cases, the import is done automatically. This means that when importing a queue TMS calls the deployment tool of an application and hands over the files. The import is done automatically; no administrator's interaction is required. In some cases, the exported file is delivered to a designated destination and the import itself needs to be done manually. This is the case for a KM Documents' import by today. SAP Master Data Management plans to offer a CTS+ integration with MDM 7.1 as well - this integration also requires a manual import.

CTS+ Components - Overview


The main concepts of the Change and Transport System (such as TMS systems, transport layers, transport routes) are still valid and required for a CTS+ landscape. The main parts of the enhanced CTS are shown in given screenshot. The decision where to configure these components depends on the use case (such as PI, EP, NWDI) and system landscape especially when a complex system landscape needs to be enabled for CTS+ functionality. Example: for a central dual-stack system that acts as domain controller for a non-ABAP landscape. Here all server components are configured within the same system.
