Distinguish NWBC / SAPGUI

Hi all,

I need to have a different behavior in my program, related to the GUI the user is working with. Is there any way to distinguish at runtime between NWBC and standard SAPGUI? We compared a lot of things (system callstack, syst-structure, some nwbc-classes) but didn't find any reliable indicator, that the user is working with Netweaver Business Client.

Any hints would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    Try to instantiate the NWBC runtime in your ABAP program, it will fail unless you are actually accessing your program with NWBC.

    • You can try the following piece of code, it is from SAP Learning Solution:

      METHOD check_client_environment.

      DATA: lo_wd_application TYPE REF TO if_wd_application,

      lv_cl_environment TYPE i.

      ev_portal = abap_false.

      lo_wd_application = io_wd_component->get_application( ).

      lv_cl_environment = lo_wd_application->get_client_environment( ).

      IF lv_cl_environment = if_wd_application=>co_client_environment-portal OR

      lv_cl_environment = if_wd_application=>co_client_environment-nwbc.

      ev_portal = abap_true.

    Hi Aaron,

    Try the next:

    DATA: gui_exist TYPE c VALUE space.



    return = gui_exist.

    IF gui_exist IS INITIAL.
