Too much navigation links due to interconnected views



Being relatively new to ABAP WebDynpro I am tring to write an application in a NW 2004s system which consists of a main view and several utility programs each in their own view. All views are stored in a single window.

I want to create a single menu to jump to each view. This menu should be accessibly from each view, so you can navigate directly from any view to any other view. Since every menu item contains an instruction to fire a different outbound plug, and every screen has its own inbound plug, the number of navigation links rapidly increases with the number of screens. In fact the number of navigation links L = 2 * (V !) ( where V is the number of views ).

I know you could make a master menu in the main view that contains the navigation to other, secundary views. In the secundary view you could only go back to the master menu. So access from one secundary view to another one can only flow via the master menu. But I would like to have the more direct access possibility between views.

Is there another way to navigate between these views without the need to create a huge amount of static navigation links ?
