We are using local WD projects (without NWDI) . The iview and pages are created in portal according to this .
Now we are moving all local projects to NWDI . What my question is do we need to create the iviews , pages again for same projects .
We have to determine any iView/Page changes that may be required when we move forward into Production. This would
include how we link to pages, etc from the quick links area.
If they are projects better thing is to create new iView,pages for newly created DCs in long run. In NWDI, we can only use DCs. And local projects application URL is quite different to that of DC (namespace, package etc changes ) . But still if you want to use the old iViews you can use them by changing ExternalLink property to your newly created DC application's URL.
Any property changes that we do for iVierws or pages or any portal content we need to transport.
But I strictly suggest you that create new iViews for newly created DCs at least if not pages and add them to the old pages and then delete old iViews from the pages.
