    Hi,

    Web Dynpro Application always run in the default browser of your system.

    This cant be controlled from Web Dynpro side.

    If you want your WD Application to rum in some specific browser than you have to change yoru system settings explicitly.

    Go to Control Panel -> Internet options -> Programs tab -> Default Web Browser -> Remove the check.

    Apply & Ok.

    Now if you open any other browser it will prompt you for making it a default browser, Click on Yes.

    Now if you run the WD Application it will not run in the internet explorer instead the other browser than you have made default.

    Regards

    Vishal,

    I think it is outside the scope of Webdynpro ABAP application ,you cannot control it from the application

    Thanks

      Hi

      If i take it from service perspective, say if i want to test a service from SICF and it should open in any other desired browser.

      Can this be done.

      thanks

    Run your application from SICF. It should run the app in your default browser instead of IE.

      Yeah it works for me when using Firefox as my default browser on Windows XP. I haven't tried it with Safari for Windows XP though.

      I also just tested it on my Macbook using the java SAP gui. There it does work correctly with Safari, both from SE80 and SICF.
