    Hello Bala,

    If you look at the end-result, a Web Dynpro application is a J2EE application. Web Dynpro however offers model-driven tools which allow to define the application you want to develop with visual and intuitive models. Based on those models the application is generated.

    Bottom line: Web Dynpro minimizes the coding effort and allows to build J2EE applications more quickly compared to code-centric tools.

    I hope this information is helpful!

      No, you cannot. Web Dynpro has it's own runtime, but is based on J2EE technology. As there currently is no (or just an emrging) standard on UI, we could not use a standard on this.
