    Hi Oliver,

    WebDynpro for ABAP and WebDynpro for Java , has the difference in the implementaion programming language only

    - for ABAP closely associated with R/3 ).

    - complete integration into NW ABAP Stack.

    - Direct connection . No need of JCO.

    Here the constraint is render the UI elements properly with different devices (PCs , PDAs,and cell phones).

    Web Dynpro supports display formats for various front ends, from PCs and laptops to mobile devices such as PDAs and cell phones.

    Screen flicker caused by reloading the page in the browser is avoided through a process called delta handling, which replaces only those parts of the screen that have changed.


    like WebDynpro for Java ,

    WebDynpro for abap also supports mobile devices.

    refer these links too..

    hello oliver,

    the java web dynpro(JWD) has a set of apis of mobile devices

    support like blackberry and pocketPC. in JWD, there are

    renderer classes for specific client agent for mobiles.

    on the other hand, ABAP web dynpro(AWD) is something new.

    and basing on the documents available, i couldn't find any

    support nor available APIs for mobile device like WML

    rendering for blackberry .

    well, i think it is just a matter of time when mobile

    devices will be supported in AWD... but with the current

    release, i don't think that it is officially supported.

      hello oliver,

      not all html-codes are compatible with all the browsers.

      most mobile devices only support a subset of the html tags

      as defined in the W3 specification; and some only support


      to support mobile devices, automatic agent/browser detection

      and proper rendering of the codes are necessary. for mobile

      phone like blackberry e.g., the page should be rendered as

      WML and not as HTML.

      hope this helps.

    We are planning to implement a connected Mobile solution for devices running Windows CE using the Webdynpro approach.

    Since both WD for JAVA & WD for ABAP produce HTML code for a browser, does it really matter whether we use WD for ABAP over WD for JAVA?

    If using WD for ABAP is an issue, what exactly is the issue?

    Thanks for your responses

    Into the courseware of course NET310 (page 6) SAP explains, that WebDynpro ABAP supports different mobile devices (also PDA's, Pocket PCs ...). A commercial gimmick?
