Typical examples for the integration technology are:

Client Eventing: Enables iViews to communicate with one another at the client side and to communicate with the portal itself.

Work Protect: Function providing an infrastructure for handling unsaved data in portal applications, for example if users navigate in the portal without first having stored their entries in an application.

Session Management: Contains in particular the session persistence to retain the last session status of the user (for example when navigating to another portal page) as well as a server session termination function for releasing resources on the back-end system (for example when closing the browser).

Portal Navigation: SAP Enterprise Portal offers more than simply navigation between individual portal pages, in particular.

Object-based navigation (OBN): It provides users with a navigation feature based on the actual business objects from productive back-end systems.

Drag & Relate: iViews can contain objects representing business elements of a back-end application (for example customer). If users pull such an object, as with Drag & Drop, and relate it to another object in the Drag&Relate target object area, they can navigate between different applications containing similar, but not identical business objects.

Dynamic Navigation: The portal enables you to assign navigation objects to pages and iViews as context sensitive dynamic navigation iViews. This means that navigation targets are provided dynamically depending on the action selected.
