    Hi Peter,

    Web Dynpro is SAP's solution for developing Web applications and therefore also the strategic approach to develop portal content. The portal content (iViews and iFrames) can also be built of Html for Business (HTMLB) components for example, which may have been created by the SAP Visual Composer.

    A Web Dynpro application is primaryly designed to run standalone without the portal infrastructure around it. On the other hand it's easy to integrate a WD app into the portal lateron. So <b>definitely</b>, you don't need a portal to run a WD app.

    Hope that helps.

    Regards

    Stefan

    Hi Peter,

    you can of course use Web Dynpro without a portal. Think of Web Dynpro as just another way to write web applications like you can do with JSPs/Servlets.

    The default URL for a Web Dynpro app. is:

    http://<host>:<port>/webdynpro/dispatcher/local/<web dynpro project name>/<web dynpro application name>
