Web Dynpro(ABAP) User Decision without UWL


Hi all you Guru's out there.

I am very noob when it comes to Workflow and ABAP WD so please excuse me if this is a dumb question. I have searched the web and read part of the Practical Workflow for SAP 2nd Edition before coming here. So I have looked this is not just a quick fix I'm searching for.

I have a problem at the moment, I am currently at a client that does not have the portal installed yet, hence no UWL, they are however on NetWeaver 7.01 so I can make ABAP Web Dynpro's.

Problem is I have to create a workflow that uses the ABAP WD to make a decision - approve or reject. But I can't find anything that helps in this sence there is an example in the Practical Workflow book but this uses UWL and the blog by the writer of this book here on SDN also uses the same approach using UWL.

Has anyone achieved this without the UWL.

This is what I have tried, but not sure if it is going to work:

1) Created a program that uses cl_gui_frontend_services=>execute to execute my WD application - this works fine but I don't know if the workflow will wait for this call to finish before continuing with the next step in the workflow?

Any help will be greatly appreciated
