Is NWDI needed to make ess application modifications

We are upgrading to ecc 6.0 from 4.6c and we are implementing ess with portal. I have made some simple changes using the badi's like xss_rem_interface. but now I need to make other changes or enhancements like modifying the working time calendar by highlighting specific dates(holidays). Can this be done without nwdi? Is there any documentation on the develelopment limitations without NWDI?

If we are just making minor modifications to ess, do we need nwdi implemented?

    I found an article on SAP NetWeaver Composition Environment: A Software Lifecycle Management Scenario without NWDI. This article from sdn-busisness process exprot community explained what is needed to modify applications without NWDI.

      Standard development – without using the NWDI or following SAP’s component principles.

      There are certain situations in which you cannot or do not want to stick to the SAP component model and/or use NWDI. In this case you can:

      ○ Use the Developer Studio as Integrated Development Environment (IDE) and go on with SAP’s specific development without the NWDI. This is possible only in SAP NetWeaver 7.1 CE. For example, you can model Visual Composer applications locally without NWDI integration and support.

      ○ Choose to develop without following the SAP component model principles. In this development scenario you only use the Developer Studio as an IDE.
