NWBC Desktop 4.0 Performance questions

Is NWBC for Desktop as fast as regular SAPGUI? Since it employs role-based menus, I understand it is a bit slower starting up because it has to get all the roles, but once NWBC is up and running, should it be just as fast as SAPGUI? I was thinking it should be as fast as SAPGUI because it uses "embedded SAPGUI".

What are some reasons that NWBC for Desktop be slower than SAPGUI?

Does NWBC 4.0 run faster with CORBU theming turned on and slower when CORBU is turned off?

Thank you in advance,

    Hi Rick,

    as you said, you have to get the roles first, but only once.

    NWBC does not change the performance behavior of the contained applications. The shell adds some additional performance on top but this happens in a constant way and does not relate to the performance behavior of the application.

    See all the details here in the SAP Library Docu:

    Chapter 8.

    I was wondering if anyone has done any more testing? We are looking at using NWBC for a new project and have noticed significant delays in response time. Is there any settings that we may be missing in our environment to help with the speed?
