Web Dynpro Beginner (Absolut Beginner) question

Hi all,

we are planning to do some Web Dynpro Development to integrate our Client Server Apps and SAP (for example : We will show Debtor Informations from SAP combined with Informations from our Helth Care System based on MS-SQL).

Ok. I'm familiar with ABAP (actually not Java but in the near future i think i have to learn it).

Now my question :

What exactly do i need to develop Web Dynpro Applications ? For me all the Netweaver stuff is not so clear for what i need to develop those applications.

- Do i need Eclipse with the Plug Ins ?

- Where can i download the required stuff ?

- Do i need a Java VM on my Computer ?

etc.

etc.

Actually i have no idea what i need on my development PC.

So can someone please explain what exactly i need to install on my dev pc and what on the server to develop Web Dynpro Apps ?

TIA

Henning

    Learning Java is not a bad idea anyway 😉

    yes

    at: https://www.sdn.sap.com/sdn/downloads.sdn?page=software_download.htm

    > - Do i need a Java VM on my Computer ?

    yes, i suggest to get the latest JDK 1.4.2 at: http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/index.jsp

    You should download and install the JDK before the WebAS, since you will need it for WebAS installation.

    This is all you need, a good starting point is to have a look at the WebDynpro tutorials available at: https://www.sdn.sap.com/sdn/developerareas/webdynpro.sdn?page=webdynpro_tutorials.htm

    Hope that helps.

    Regards

    Stefan

    Hi Henning,

    Regarding the questions "Do I need Eclipse with the Plug Ins" Stefan is right, but the Developer Studio is already part of the Web AS Sneak Preview he mentioned. Just to make sure.

    Best regards,

    Karin
