I want to know what is difference between

Web dynpro in Java and

Web dynpro in ABAP.

In which part i want to shift in Java or ABAP side?

What are the software requirements to work with Web dynpro? Now i am working in ABAP on

    Hi Kumar,

    Well, Web Dynpro's in general are like the Dynpros in ABAP but for the Web.

    The difference between Web Dynpro for Java and WebDynpro for ABAP is simply the programming language. So I guess for you shifting in WebDynpro for ABAP would be easier.

    WebDynpro for ABAP is not yet released for productive use, that's why at the moment everyone is using WebDynpro for Java. I already heard in my SAP-training that WebDynpro for ABAP will have some new interesting features which are not existing in WebDypro for Java, as it is then the newer thing.

    I'm not sure about the software requirements of WebDynpro for ABAP, as it is not realeased for productive use yet.

    Kind regards,

    Timo

    • Hi Timo,

      The message area in Web Dynpro ABAP features help links to ABAP message long texts (if present), a history and is scrollable. This is just a visual add-on, since from the programming model point of view (which is the same across both platforms) the message manager of course works similar to Web Dynpro Java.

      Kind regards,

      Thomas

    Hi Kumar,

    I'm just pasting here areply i'd given for a similar query. hope it helps you 😊

    SAP had promised to offer two versions of WebDynpro :

    1) WebDynpro for JAVA.

    2) WebDynpro for ABAP.

    The webdynpro that we are currently discussing in this forum is 'WebDynpro for JAVA'. For running it, you need to have a separate WAS installation and the programming IDE to be used is NetWeaver Developer Studio. And as the name stands, it is purely based on Java and provides special support to call R/3 functions from within the Java environment.

    You can read all about webdynpro from this link

    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/de/21/82a9058fa8de46b1ba7522289345b2/frameset.htm

    Regarding WebDynpro for ABAP, as far as I know it is not released yet. Once that is released, I suppose you can access that environment from within your R/3 system by entering a transaction code. I think the latest update on WebDynpro ABAP in SDN is this weblog from Thomas Jung.
