NWDI Set up for Custom Adapter module development

Hi All,

We are working on NWDI set up in our landscape (PO 7.4, with dev, quality and prod boxes). NWDI is installed on Solman. We wish to develop custom adaptor module using NWDI. I am able to log on to DTR via NWDS. Given all this –

  • What needs to be done next so that we can use NWDI for adaptor development?
  • Once nwdi set up is done, we will be able to transport the adaptor module via transport (just like we do for iFlows etc), right ?
  • Where do I need to create the development configuration for custom adaptor module development, should it be in SLD or local in NWDS ?

I have gone through the sdn links and I think we need to do an NWDI track set up first but not sure about the complete activity for set up.

Thanks,

Ravi.

    Q.:what needs to be done next so that we can use NWDI for adaptor development?

    1.1. In case you do use only NWDI, you need to create a product in SLD and add the build-time dependencies.

    Defining Products in a Single Development Configuration

    Working with Products and Software Components

    Please refer to this note:

    1572743 Required SCs for Specific Type of Development in 7.31 Track and 7.40 Track

    the interesting part is PI/BPM Integration. There you will find the necessary SCA you need to add to the build-time dependencies.

    Then you add this product in CMS - Landscape Configurator, import the SCAs in the CMS - Transport Studio and if everything is successful you might import the dev.conf.track in the NWDS. After synchronization of the DCs with the DTR, you will be able to start your development process in the custom (added as "To Be Developed" in the CMS) SCAs.

    Please refer to this document:

    Central Development with NWDI

    for better understanding of the software logistics with NWDI.

    1.2. In case you do use CTS+, you will need to carry out configurations on both ABAP and NWDI. The scenarios are very different and depends on the business requirements and the scope of the customizations. Please read very carefully the entire content of this document:

    How To... Configure CM Services in SAP NetWeaver 7.3 and Up

    Q.: Once nwdi set up is done, we will be able to transport the adaptor module via transport (just like we do for iFlows etc), right ?

    This is a little bit unclear to me, but nothing is so smoothly in NWDI. In case you do use CTS+, then you will start the transportation from the STMS transaction on the AS ABAP. This will be handled after that by the CMS or CM Services (depends what have chosen) and in the end eventually will end in TEST, PROD and so on. Again the scenarios vary a lot.

    3.

    Q.: Where do I need to create the development configuration for custom adaptor module development, should it be in SLD or local in NWDS ?

    The Local Development Configuration created in the NWDS, might not be used with NWDI. You might only copy DCs from there or make a local deployment - from the NWDS directly on the RTS.

    Hi Milen,

    I was able to configure NWDI. So thanks. I am marking your answer as the right one.

    Although I am still working on the transport approach for NWDI with my basis team, but as you rightly said, nothing is so smooth in NWDI. Anyway, it was a pleasure to see this working :).

    Cheers,

    Ravi.
