    Hi Darry,

    the choice for JSP vs. AWT depends on a couple of issues and is discussed in the standard developer training. We'll need to move this info also into the MDK:

    ********************************

    When to use JSP:

    Pros:

    Standard UI model best known by end-users

    Modern look and customizability

    Easily enhancable

    Recommended programming model of SAP for white collar apps

    Best choice for all modern business PDA

    Easy switch between online and offline

    Integrates best with other web applications

    Cons:

    Requires more system ressources (local web server)

    HTTP paradigm not suitable in all situations (e.g. scanners)

    *************************************

    When to use AWT:

    Pros:

    Full UI control

    - Best use of screen size

    - Very good for blue-collar workers

    - HTTP paradigm not suitable in all situations (e.g. scanners)

    Smaller, faster installation requiring less system resources

    Cons:

    UI changes require coding changes (and additional testing!)

    UI development difficult*

    Old-fashioned look

    Cu, Jan
