troubleshooting a java program, works on pdk not on Portal

Hi

Can someone give me a quick overview of the most common reasons for developments not working on the portal in the same way as on the pdk?

Thanks in advance, Bjorn V.

    This has the potential to develop into a large laundry list! Here are my contributions:

    1. PDK runs on Tomcat, vs the portal on the SAP J2EE engine - platform-specific differences may show up.

    2. Portal may have load-balancing servers, which the PDK does not.

    3. PDK is mostly a single-user environment, so the concurrency issues that show up in portal may not show up in the PDK.

    4. The PDK only has a subset of the portal functionality.

    5. From my experience, the PDK is an approximation of the portal environment, but then it is just that - an approximation. I believe that that is part of the reason a separate PDK environment with a different code-base has been eliminated in EP6.

    These are the differences I can think of at the moment - I am sure there are a lot more that can be added to the list.
