URL parameter to invoke one of mulitple start pages

Hello WebDyn Pro's.

I am thinking that I will create a single Web Dynpro application that serves 6-10 single web pages (views). These 6-10 pages are all very independent from each other. In essence, my application has 6-10 "start pages". I am planning on using this web dynpro to provide all the static HTML content across my portal.

Is it possible to pass a URL parameter to the application such that it knows which exact start page to display (eg; view=startpage1)?

Could you give me a little guidance on how to build a WebDynpro application for this requirement?

    Hello Kevin,

    To achive this you could create one "start page", that just checks for you url parameter and fires a plug to the correct one.

    See this tutorial for more information about URL parameters. in web dynpro.pdf

    Or you could simply create one application for each start view, and start the right application from the portal.

    Regards Mattias

      Thanks Kevin, it works great now.

      I was also doing it in the wdDoInit, but I was reading the parameter from the context-mapping, instead of from the Request.

      Many thanks

    It is possible to dynamically create a URL in a webDynpro application. Also, we can pass any number of parameters across componenets/views in WebDynpro.

    As a result of this, either the entire url can be passed as a string parameter, or just the page name, and a URL can be dynamically built in the code.

    Look at the package for the details on constructing URL dynamically.

    Data is transferred within a WebDynpro application with Context Mapping.

    I'm trying to do something like this, things worked fine when I test the application outside the portal. But when I put this inside portal using "portal_content/templates/iviews/sap_webdynpro_iview" iview type, I'm unable to reach the URL Parameters.

    I've seen very topics about this, and I already tried the 2 ways that are sugested: use the getRequestParameter(your solution), or get that from the interface view in the default plug. Any of them work outside the portal, but in portal doesn't work.

    Inside portal, this didn't get the URL parameter but what is in iview property "Application Parameters". I try to put my desired parameter in this property and he get it. But I want this parameter to be dynamic, so I have to get this from URL.

    I'm out of ideas.

    Anyone know's how to solve this issue?
