Unable to Show Layout Preview



I am using NetWeaver trial version to practice ABAP Web-Dynpro

While executing the Web-Dynpro application, I was getting FQDN error.

So in the host file I added entry: localhost cd.localhost cds cd.localhost

and in the instance profile I added:

icm/host_name_full = cd.localhost

This solved the FQDN error which I was getting but now when I try to show the Layout Preview it gives me error:

"No HTTP(S) service active on server cds"

Detailed Message for this error is:

No HTTP(S) service active on server cds

Message no. SWDP_WB_TOOL489


You are currently logged on to an application server (qbl) for which no HTTP(S) service is active. This is why the Web Dynpro ABAP View Designer preview cannot easily be set up, and it has automatically been deactivated.

Alternatively, the problem can also be caused by an incorrect entry in database table HTTPURLLOC. For more information, see Note 1009930.


You have two alternatives to continue working with the View Designer preview.

Log on directly to the application server cd, for which the service in question is active.

Set user parameter WB_WD_VD_HTML_TO_DB in transaction SU01 to activate a fallback handling for setting up the View Designer preview. This alternative is not as efficient as the standard procedure because of the additional database accesses needed. Though, this way you can continue to use the PUBLIC system logon. Afterwards you may have to reactivate the View Designer preview using the appropriate button in the toolbar.


Plz help me solve this problem.

Thank you,
