    Hi All

    To Get the Work Item ID in Webdynpro ABAP

    1. Go to Your Window and in Default Plug add Parameter WI_ID of type string

    Inside the Method write code to Place the passed parameter WI_ID into your

    component controllers Context, so that you can fetch it inside your views.

    Hi Gajendra,

    This is an interesting thread.

    Register your task in SWFVISU with visualization parameter "Application" and "PACKAGE".

    Assign dummy method in your task where contains "Message..." and "Raise..." statement

    Hi Raja,

    I split the thread as you suggested.

    Yes - this subject would make an interesting blog and I hope to get round to it soon if no-one beats me to it - that's a dare :-).

    We offered this at the US Teched (BEM250) and it was very popular with good feedback. We're repeating it in Japan, Amsterdam and Bangalore.

    I'm not realy sure what is meant by R/3 workflow. Workflow has always been part of the basis and since SAP NetWeaver it has been part of that. It's not a 'product' (the name SAP Business Workflow is a bit misleading in this respect) so there's no separate licensing involved. ABAP Web Dynpro came in SAP NetWeaver 2004s, which is after the R/3 era.

    So Gajendra is asking about <i>either</i>

    1. workflow <i>and </i>WebDynpro executing in a NetWeaver 2004s system in tandem with an R/3 (say Release 4.6C) or

    2. workflow <i>embedded </i>in R/3 4.6C calling a NetWeaver 2004s Web Dynpro or

    3. workflow and Web Dynpro <i>in </i>a Business Suite application which is build on NetWeaver 2004s (i.e. ERP 2005).

    Phew...

    Anyway composition 1 is best done using XI. Composition 2 and 3 are both recommended but 3 is the easiest.

    The simplest solution:

    a) Use the Universal Worklist (UWL) as the inbox.

    b) Use table SWFVISU to generate a configuration for the UWL for an ABAP Web Dynpro application (described by Sandy).

    c) The Web Dynpro application must expect a parameter called <i>WI_ID</i>. This is the work item ID and is the 'handle' to the process. Within the Web Dynpro you can use this handle to view the process/task context (workitem container) and even modify it. You can also use this to signal that the work item is completed. All of this is done using the SAP_WAPI function modules. (the answer to Raja's question).

    I wrote an article which you can access online called 'New Workflow Paradigm ...' in SAP Insider (http://www.SAPinsideronline.com">www.SAPinsider.com.)

    Best regards,

    Alan

      Anyways, let's wait and see his reply.
