Simplified explanation on WAS UI Tools

Hello all, I am looking for some explanation/documentation on the differences between: SAP BSP, SAP Dynpro and SAP iViews. I am trying to create a 'picture' on the differences between these various UI tools and - if applicable - how they are tied together. Can anyone provide me some clarification? Much appreciated, Tiest

    Hi Tiest,

    Phew quite an interesting question for which pages of info can be written ... a simplistic difference between those technologies could be (as far as I am concerned):

    BSP is a server side technologie to build web applications by combining static HTML and/or extension libraries with ABAP/4 code.

    Web dynpro and IViews are both GUI-driven software development tools to build web applications that use a server side technology (like BSP, JSP, ...) to build a web application.

    If I would need to draw a picture then I would put BSP below (part of server side technologies), Web dynpro in the middle (it does use parts of server side technology but also introduces its own (javascript client)) and Iviews on top as this one is clearly a GUI representative using any server side technology ...

    Hope this helps,
