People-Centric UI and BSP possibilities...?

Brian, I posted this thread since I haven't got any response from Mark Finnern in the SDN Suggestions Forum, yet. In my humble opinion this area is definately an area that should receive more attention here. Exspeciall from a SAP CRM and SP HR perspective in combination with BSP development this is a very valid and promising area. Eventhough SAP's stance is that as of Portal v6.0 sp8 the PC-UI capabilities should focus around WebDynpro, they still do not (I tested with Portal v6.0 sp9 and BSP's are still used. Can you consider my original request to create a seperate PC-UI thread? Thanks in advance for your thoughts, Tiest.

    There are basically two arguments at the moment that swings the decision.

    (1) Critical mass. SDN prefers only to open a new forum when they can see critical mass of discussions on any topic. Which also includes (in my personal opinion) support from the internal SAP group (to help moderate and provide deep technical help). What is usually done is to have the group develop in another forum, and later when critical mass is there, open a new forum. In this you can discuss PCUI in BSP forum. But we are still missing critical mass. I have emailed before the internal development group, and see some colleagues from time to time here. But still not at the level that it is going to carry an own forum. The time is not yet ripe.

    (2) Within SDN there (until now) no real application related forums. Just low level platform forums. It see nothing speaking against this, it is just status quo. Recommended is also to look at the SAP Community. They have strong application related forums. See

    One remark: we will NOT accept any discussion here about the reasons for SDN versus SAP Community, which one is better, etc. Any post with comments on this topic will deleted without comment. Do not do it.

      Hi Brian, I do appreciate your response and understand both items mentioned. My primary resource definately remains the SDN and I will definately leverage my knowledge in this area when I have the possibility. Thanks, Tiest.
