WebDynPro - DynPage - JSPDynPage - Visual Composer

Hi everyone,

I used to develop applications (GUI + JCo) by creating the GUI with DynPage, and the connection to SAP/R3 with JCo coding.

Now that I am using SAP Netweaver, what is best to create the GUI, connection to SAP/R3 ?

I thought that for GUI, I should use WebDynPro. Is it really a good tool ? It seems to be a bit complicated comparing to DynPage programming.

What are your opinion(s) ?

Thanx!

    Hi David,

    VC is good for showing simple data come from BAPI, and create simple applications.

    WD is good for developing deep business applications.

    So you can use both environment in your developing - just start from VC and if it doesn't enough for your application - use WD.

    Regards,

    Roman.

    Hi David,

    Web Dynpro means programming at a higher level than iView development. You will need of course some (little) time to get used to the concepts of Web Dynpro but the investment will really be worthwhile.

    With Web Dynpro your development will be significantly faster even if you use backend connections (e.g. R/3). The latter can be done totally without coding (for simple operations of course).

    I don´t want to keep quiet about the fact that some features you may have used in iView programming don´t work with Web Dynpro (at the moment). These are JavaScript (has advantages and disadvantages) and portal personalisation (but you can simply write your own personalisation with Web Dynpro if you need it).

    Don´t hesitate to change to Web Dynpro programming.

    Regards

    Helmut

    Hi David,

    The WebDynpro (WD)developing required connection definition in WD. If you use WD RFC model for connection - you should define SLD (system landscape directory) for this connection. You can also use JCo directly from WD - in this case you can define static connection in your code.

    From my experience it is good development environment and save develop time in case of developing business applications.
