We all know that the abap will be available in SCP since 2018, but maybe just working as back end service, so how about the other ui base on abap, will the webdynpro,FPM also available in SCP or not?

Hi David,

According to this blog, I understand that ABAP on SCP will only process data like a black-box. No UI components will be available to you. So, basically it is supposed to work in a request/response way but written in ABAP language.

Maybe there are other plans from P&I team, but as of now you don't even have the option to run transactions like SE80 (required for WebDynpro development). And, since SAPUI5 is the new cool tool out there, I bet WD4ABAP will be gradually discouraged for new development, specially in the cloud spectrum.

Regards,
Ivan

“... transactions like SE80 (required for WebDynpro development)”

No it isn’t. #useADTnotSE80

Hi Mike,

Yes, ADT will allow you to run SE80 on any traditional ABAP based system. That's far from true in the cloud scope.

ABAP on SCP will not support SE80 - it will focus on RESTful APIs. With that one could provide extensions to S4/HANA written in ABAP. Please review this link for Q&A on this matter and this answer from Florian. Florian clearly states that tools like SEGW and SE80 will not be available.

It is clear to me that ABAP on SCP will not allow you to "develop" just about any type of ABAP application. It will be a subset of the ABAP language - thus it could not even support most of SE80 features in that sense.

Ivan

I don't see how that in any way related to my comment.

You said SE80 is required for Web Dynpro development. It isn't, you can use ADT.
