BW SEM-BPS API functions from a Web Dynpro project in Netweaver

Hi,

Rather than using the standard Web Interface Builder in BW SEM-BPS (3.1B), we have to use SAP Netweaver to create a Web Dynpro project which accesses all the API_SEMBPS functions, such as GETDATA, SETDATA, FUNCTION_EXECUTE etc. Has anyone done this before? If so, do you have any examples, hints?

Regards,

Linda Lee

    Hi Marc,

    The reason we are doing this is because the strategy of our company is to deliver all SAP projects with a web frontend. This includes R/3, CRM, BW and SEM. SAP has recommended Web Dynpro for this so we are using it for all our development now. Since BW SEM-BPS generates BSPs which will be outdated shortly, we are not using the standard Web Interface Builder. I hope this helps. Therefore, are there any ideas?

    Regards,

      Hello Marc,

      Very interesting solution, to use the WEB power of BSP.In an EP6 platform, where I've created a URL based iview, with FQN to the SEM_BSC, worked fine till I set the SSO to authenticate with SEM as a reference R3 system, mapped the users, but the iview still challanges after they logon to the portal.

      Installation has EP6 SP2, SEM 3.5, WAS6.2, standalone portal.

      I appriciate any solution, or documentation in this regard.

      Thank you,

      Attar, AA

      Also, I'm trying to pass sap-user, sap-password parameters to the ULR, but could not figure out the how pass the SSO uid and pwd to these SEM parameters

      as in http://FQN.com:8000/sap/bc/bsp/sap/sem_bsc?sap-user=mapped-user&sap-password=mapped-password

      Reference: http://help.sap.com/saphelp_sem40bw/helpdata/en/1b/3131375fc9342ae10000009b38f839/frameset.htm

    Hello Linda,

    that is a rather unusual procedure. I'm not aware of anyone attempting this since the Web Interface in BPS is quite powerful and flexible already and requires no programming at all.

    So I'm curious why you want to do it in Web Dynpro. Could you please explain what limitation in the Web Interface justify a custom development?

    Kind regards,

    Marc

    Hi Marc and Tobias,

    Thank you for your views on this topic. We have decided to use Web Dynpro as the front end for our BPS project based on the following reasons:

    - The Web Interface builder could not meet all our requirements for our UI

    - It is the company's strategic direction for all future SAP projects (including CRM, R/3)

    So you may be hearing from me on the forum a fair bit in the future.

    Regards,

    Linda Lee
