Project Server Web Access Revisited

  Asked By: Holly    Date: Jun 05    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 801

There is some confusion lately about what Project Server Web Access
is and what it does. This is an attempt to clear that up a bit.

With Project Server 2003 all project data for a given instance is
stored in a SQL Server database. All 'heavyweight' project editing
is performed with Project Professional and is required for the
majority of PM tasks. There is also an IIS based web client
available with this product. This is a DIFFERENT client using the
SAME data as project pro 2k3 does. There is limited 'lightweight'
functionality but usually enough for most team members and always

Project Web Access depends on Sharepoint for document storage, risks
and issues. It isn't optional if you want this functionality -
Project Web Access cannot do this. When you are connected to PWA and
view docs, for example, you will notice the top of the Window is
Project Server, but the bottom section is actually a frame directly
from a sharepoint site.
