    Hi,

    There are standalone and integrated (after 640) versions of ITS. How the HTTP requests are handled depends on this. BSP are the business server pages and called by requests from ITS/ICM (Internet communication manager). You can activate the services which you want to use on the web via SICF.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi,

    As mentioned above ITS is integrated in the Internet Communication Framework of NetWeaver. Transaction SICF is where you control the services avaialble in ICM, one of the services is webgui so if you want to use the SAP webgui you need to enable this service and other ICM services features like load balancing.

    BSP is a page-based programming model with server-side scripting meaning that your programs (BSPs - server-side scripts) have direct access to all elements in the application server.

    Now, you need an entry point to access a BSP, that is a service; a service is controlled (enabled, disabled, etc.) from transaction SICF.

    If you are using SAP webgui you'll notice the URL contains /bc/gui/sap/its/webgui, if you look in SICF you'll find this service under the sap tree.There is section for BSP also. If you enable, for example, BSP wp_sess_test2 you'll notice the URL to access this has sap/bc/bsp/sap/wp_sess_test2. This is how you'll notice whether you are using one or the other.
