About WebDypro Runtime

Hi,

When you run a webdynpro application it runs on a browser. For anything to be displayed on a browser it has to be in html format. But how is that webdynpro has all these stylish buttons is it using a style sheet if yes where is this stored. Is the webdynpro runtime a servlet which runs on SAP WebAS servlet engine. and knows what/where to look for when one runs a webdynpro application.???

    Hi Murali,

    yes, the WD look&feel is determined by style sheets. They are normally located at :\usr\sap\J2E\JC00\j2ee\cluster\server0\temp\webdynpro\web\ sap.com\tc wddispwda\global. There are different directories for SSR and CSF for example.

    Web Dynpro has it's own J2EE container service, each WD server application (deployable object) is an application related to that container.

    If a WD application is requested by an URL, a specialized dispatcher servlet takes care about creating the environment for the application and starting the application. So each WD app runs in this global context automatically and the web resource paths etc.pp. are related to that context.

    Hope that helps.

    Regards

    Stefan

    Hi Armin,

    Thats right as a application developer one need not worry but i guess its always nice to know this to enhace your skills. Thats the reason I wanted to know the reason why there would not be further development using CSF.

      Hi Stefan,

      I guess you are right. The other reason for needing to know about this was that I was inquisitive to know the internal working of WebDynpro runtime and how applications are run when you say deploy and run. Thanks for the information. And also how WebDynpro fits into the J2EE framework.

      With Regards
