Development of WebDynpro Java with NWDS 7.1 for WebAS 7.0 possible?

we have different J2EE Servers on different SAP Releases / Patch Levels (7.0 and 7.1)

can we use newest development studio 7.1 SP5 and develop webdynpros that are running with

old web as releases? or at least old patch levels?

any experience or recommendations on this?

    Hi Joreg,

    I think that if you are developing something in NWDS 7.1 that was supported by NWDS 7.0 then it should definitely work on NW 7.0. But if you try to run somehing that is a new addon in NWDS 7.1 then it would be an issue.

    Like if you ant to develop a process using Process Composer and deploy it on NW 7.0, then it would be a problem.

    Hope this helps!!

    Cheers,

    Arafat

    No, the NWDS must not be newer than the server runtime. Otherwise the NWDS will generate code against new APIs that are not existing in the older runtime.

      Thank you for the fast response!

      The bugs that I mentioned were various small bugs, but mostly in the NWDS. Right now I can't remember

      any specific ones which could possibly have something to do with the version difference.

      Different but related question: All my Web Dynpro projects contain warnings about divergent versions of

      some DCs. Here is the result of "Check Project Archive Versions":

      Apparently we imported SCs with SP number 6 into our NWDI tracks. What do you recommend me to do?

      Ignore the warnings? Or look for SP5 versions of the affected components and import them into the track?
