    I see exactly this same Migrating from an ASP application to WebDynpro in the Web Dynpro forum, with exactly the same question (byte for byte). Just a different author. Hmmm...

    Ok, so in the Web Dynpro forum they said to ask the BSP guys. To tell the truth I don't know why. You question is relatively clear, and definitely WebDynpro related. Would suggest that you continue it there.

    The idea of using portal events with Web Dynpro is probably the easiest way if you have to pass values back and forth, which implies both ASP and Web Dynpro applications running in parallel. This should work relatively easy in EP6. If you need the information on how to hook the portal events into your ASP page, we can probably show you how we do it in BSP.

    Now, just for curiosity, is Bharath and Vijith different identities on the same person?

    • We started to build a tag for this, but it was never completed. Well, the documentation was never done.

      Start to look at <bsp:portalEvent>. What this tag does, is subscribe to a portal event. If the portal event is fired, it will land in your BSP page, trigger a HTMLB event, and run back to the server. Then you do the normal cl_htmlb_manager=>get_event call. You will get an instance of the class cl_portal_event.

      To fire an event, you can call the JavaScript function "portalFireEvent". It has this signature: portalFireEvent( namespace, eventname, data, sourceId).

      For some example programs, see SBSPEXT_BSP, pages portalEvent_*.

      The complete 50 lines of JavaScript can be found in the events.js file (see in your browser cache).

      This is probably worth a blog for someone looking for a small topic, plus must have access to a portal.
