Must Web Dynpro execute in EP?

hi there, can i use the Web Dynpro framework to develop browser-based application, executing in the SAP application server?

In other words, my Web Dynpro created application can run in SAP AS without SAP enterprise portal.

Or, do i have to execute Web Dynpro in SAP EP?

    from a technical point Web Dynpro is independent from the SAP Enterprise Portal - the only thing you need is J2EE 6.40 engine.

    But putting your Web Dynpro applications into the portal you win of course a lot of new features like the role-based access to your applications.

    You can easily navigate between different applications located on different portal pages and applications, running on the same portal page could use the portal eventing to communicate and to share data.

    The portal allows you also very easily to put together your Web Dynpro applications with all other applications you have implemented in the past.

    Best regards


    PS: Using Web Dynpro it is not only possible to develop browser-based applications. The Web Dynpro framework is totally client-independent. Therefore you do not have to change anything in your Web Dynpro application if you want to run your application in an smart client for example.
