importing .sca file in NWDS

Hi All,

I have a portal & webdynpro application in the form of a single .sca file.

I unzipped the file using winzip and got two files - .ear and .epa.

I want to import this in NWDS to view the code and make some changes in webdynpro.

Can anybody give me the step by step procedure to do this?

Will surely award points for useful answers.

    Hi Juhi,

    To my understanding, an *.epa file is a portal transport file. A portal app should be export into a PAR file then you can import it into NWDS. Which version of EP, NWDS are you using? Do you have NWDI set up?

    If you have NWDI set up, you can try to check in the *.sca file into your track (Transport Studio), then you can check out your app from the DTR and make the modifications, etc.

    Hope it helps.

    • Hi Juhi,

      As Pascal said, you'll have to create your SC in the SLD. I also mentioned that it'd only work if you've already had everything (SC/DC and track) configured properly.

      Wouldn't it be easier for you to ask your client to have the WD project exported to a local file system so you can import it into your NWDS as a local development? Because, as mentioned before, I'm not sure if you can get any WD code (and the project structure) from the EAR file.

    • Hi Raj,

      I am sure it will, if you have any questions feel free to raise them, however I believe if we could discuss this in a separate(new) scn thread that would be better since the topic of this very thread is slightly different.

      Best Regards,
