ABAP WebDynpro communication with SAPUI5

Hi experts.

We want to embed an ABAP WebDynpro in an SAPUI5 app. We already have done that, by using an iframe and we are able to access the iframe (as they are in the same domain).

Now we are trying to make them communicate (eg, read data from the WebDynpro to use in the SAPUI5).

Is there a way to accomplish that? We have been looking at PostMessage API, but it does not seem like it would work.

Thanks in advance.

One question: Why are you attempting to integrate two opposite technologies?

Probable option: UI5 accepts data in the form of oData service. If you need to push data from WD ABAP, then update the data in backend oData classes and trigger a model refresh(if its possible). Any model refresh should trigger an update in UI5.

Hi Sharath

We have a lot of WebDynpros that we want to integrate with our new developments in SAPUI5.

Update data in backend won't work, as the push data was only an example... we also want things like "press a button in WebDynpro and open a SAPUI5 dialog, select data and then push data to WebDynpro"


The design is fraught with complexities. Not sure of the possible solution at this moment.
