Minimum requirements for creating an iView from a J2EE application.

Is it possible to have a j2ee application communicating with an iView in an environment without using SAP NetWeaver Development Studio, Portal Development Kit, etc. Is it possible to just download a JAR file or similar and do something like this:

import com.sapportals.portal.prt.component.*;
public class MyComponent extends AbstractPortalComponent {
   pubilc void doContent(IPortalComponentRequest req, IPortalComponentResponse resp) {
      //...
   }
}

...and where do i get this file.

And how do I implement this iView into the Enterprise Portal. I'm a beginner ... sorry!

I'm asking because it would be easy for java-people to do something like this without using to much time learning the SAP NetWeaver stack and the Developer Studio and so on.

Thanks for any help,

Audun

    Hi Audun,

    first, welcome on SDN!

    About your question: Of course you could use a text editor to write your code, set a reasonable compile time classpath and compile using javac command, create file structure corresponding to the portal archive definition, zip that structure and rename it to PAR.

    And of course, it is possible to make fire using to sticks of wood.

    But hey, be honest, you don't go that way, do you?

    As you are used to use a lighter for fire, you should get used to get all advantages from the NWDS - which is nothing else than an (old) Eclipse minus some plugins plus many plugins.

    > and the Developer Studio

    "Java people" should know Eclipse! Nobody is forced to love it, but every Java developer should be able to use it! So if you are not familiar with Eclipse, the time learning NWDS means the time learning Eclipse, too, so you should invest this independent if it's for SAP or not...

    Start here, for example: http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw2004s/helpdata/en/19/4554426dd13555e10000000a1550b0/frameset.htm

    Hope it helps
