Poll: Development in ABAP Objects / Webdynpro vs. classical Dynpro

Hey there ABAP developers,

I just want to ask if you can give me one or two minutes of your attention for two poll questions.

At the moment I´m writing my master thesis about the development of a monitoring tool in ABAP. One of my bigger chapters is about the decision, which programming paradigm should be used for new development projects in SAP. And another important one is about WebDynpro vs. classical Dynpros.

Because of the fact, that I can´t create any polls in here, I just started this discussion and hope for many replies ๐Ÿ˜Š.

It would be very nice if some of you could give me an answer to the following questions (only 2 ๐Ÿ˜‰ ), so that I can maybe use the result of this poll in my master thesis, if there are enough responses.

1. What percentage of new development projects are you developing in ABAP Objects? (Not to be considered small reports that just runs for only one time)
A. 0 %
B. less than 25%
C. 25% - 49%
D. 50% - 75%
E. more than 75%

2. Which GUI technology do you prefer?
A. Classical Dynpro
B. WebDynpro
C. Business Server Pages (BSP)
D. others (please mention)

I want to thank you in advance for answering the questions,

Best regards,

    Now a days arround 50% abap report are developed by using abap objects as manitaince and development are easier comparatively with Classical Approach.

    Come to Second Quest

    Depend upon req. if Application no access through web we go for Classical Dynpro.

    if it req web acess report we go for Webdynpro Abap/java or BSP

    Present SAP Implementation projects are very rare, maximum projects are support and up gradations only .

    If they want Implement the SAP newly , defiantly they should creating ABAP Objects.

    Why Because ABAP Objects are Object Oriented Concepts, so, for future reference and re usability..etc .

    Now Come to the First Quetion.

    if it is implementation project ABAP Objects are 25% - 49%.

    if it is Support project ABAP Objects are 25%

    Now Come to the Second Quetion.

    Depend upon Reqmnt, but Most of the Applications are Webdynpro . i.e 70%.

    Remaining 30% All ( BSP and GUI ....Etc..)

    This is my opinion.

    Hello Christoph,

    I think it would be better if you created a poll in the ABAP forums instead of starting a discussion.
