Which platform is better for creating Portal contents for SAP?

Dear Experts

There are several platforms on which we can make

portal contents for SAP Portal.

1)Web Dynpro for Java

2)Web Dynpro for ABAP

3)PDK for .NET

I am trying to find out which of them would be most

efficient while developing system for the client.

It may be that for one who knows Java, Web dynpro for

Java would be efficient and so on.

However, when there is a situation where the developers

need to be trained before the project, which of these

platforms would be the most efficient.

Beside the evaluation based on language of development,

are there some other evaluation based on criteria like the

ease of development, deployment and debugging, cost for

the softwares and hardwares needed for the projects, contents of the class library, templates provided and so on?

Does anybody have some supporting document that describes

on which circumstances which of these technologies would

be efficient while making systems for the client?

It would be of great help if you could share your insights.

many thanks,

    Hi Sudeep,

    I can't say anything regarding Web Dynpro as I am not familiar with this technology. Regarding developing with Portal Development Kits, there is a comparision document - [SAP NetWeaver Portal Development Kits for .NET and Java|] - that can help you to decide.

    I haven't used both Java & ABAP Webdynpro, but I can say that developing portal using .NET is the most flexible way I can find.

    About the cost, I heard that using .NET you have to pay three times bigger than the webdynpros' family.

    I hope it helps.
