Deployed App in Portal

I completed the Tutorial TutWD_FlightList_Init WebDynpro application.

I finished my SLD configuration, built my JCo Destination, and i can click "run" from the WebDynpro app from within the Developer Studio and I get a new browser with teh application and I can search for flight data !!!!!

So, the question i have is "since i have deployed the application to the portal, where in the portal is the application?"

Does it reside in a folder like the Visual Composer is?

Do I have to create an IView and plug it in?

    Hi Michael

    Once u r through creating and testing ur webDynpro application from NWDS sucessfully and now if u want to run that web dynpro application from portal u should be doing following 4 steps

    step 1)Create Iview for ur Web Dynpro Application

    >logon to portal with adminstration rights->goto content Administartion->portal content

    >in the Browse Tab u will see portal content folder

    >expand the tree & Create ur own folder->right click portal content and create ur own folder

    >on ur folder right click ->select new Iview->

    >select web Dynpro Java Application radio button ->Next

    >select Create a single full-page iView from each application variant radio button -> next

    as u said u have deployed ur web Dynpro application on same Portal server only

    >expand Local ->look for ur deployed web Dynpro application ->select ur Application name->next

    u can provide iview name and iview Id ->next

    it will open up page template wizard for creating page provid page name, id ,select any layout option from the available option u can select more than one so that in future u have options for personalizing click -> next -> close wizard by selecting appropriate radio button

    u can open the page by double click in heriarchical view in ur folder and u can preview ur page

    step 2) create role

    >on ur folder right click ->new Role->give role name and id -> click next and finish

    >open ur created role ( double click )

    -> set Entry point property radio button for ur role to true/ yes else u wont be able to see that role even after u assign it to ur Id at logon to portal

    click Save button

    step 3) Assign the Created iview to the role

    > open ur role (double click)

    >right click on ur page name in folder heirarchy

    >select Add Page to Role as Delta Link

    >this will assign the page to role currently opened

    u can verify as assigned page appears in heirarchy of role object which is open

    step 4) Assign created Role to ur Portal Id

    >goto user Administration->identity management

    in search criteria search ur portal ID after u find ur ID

    ->click to open it and the click modify button

    ->click assigned role tab

    ->in serch criteria search ur created Role

    -> click add to add/assign that role to ur portal ID

    ->click save

    logon to portal with ur portal Id

    u will see the new role assigned to ur id u can see seprate tab created for ur webdynpro application

    and iview assigned to that role will open the web dynpro applicatiopn page in that

    Hope U got ur TutWD_FlightList_Init WebDynpro application visible on portal now

    Hi Mchael,

    for this, you have to create IView, pages in portal. then you have to create portal roles for that. Then assign those roles to User.

    If you deployed the application in the portal,

    There are two way u can run the application.

    1> As a standalone application ( which u can get in the context menu for the application)( since portal runs on WAS)

    2>You can create a Iview for your webdynpro application in portal content management and assign to the roles.

    hope this helps.
