Embedding custom webdynpro screen in FPM

Greetings to all helpful ABAP experts....

I have a requirement where I have to capture bank details of a vendor, in SRM.

The standard vendor creation screen is designed using floor plan manager and it has many wd components for different type of data like, address, name, contact details.

Now, I have created a custom wd screen/component with all the bank relevant fields. I want to embed this in the FPM_OIF_COMPONENT, along with those other standard wd components. I did the configuration of the FPM piece and when I try to test the application configuration, it gives me a null reference error.

I believe I followed all the steps required to embed the wdc into the FPM wdc, but it still gives me this error.

When I checked ST22, it errors out while looking for a component usage.

I'm not sure what I'm missing here.

Also, how do I capture the data entered by the end user in the custom wd screen?

Please suggest.....thanks in advance!

- J

    This doesn't give a lot to go on, but have you done the basic steps to include your view(s) as UIBB's in the FPM configuration? You should provide your (WDC) component name and the window name (note that the component configuration dialog asks for the "view" where you should really provide the window name - a bit confusing).

    As for recapturing the values entered by the user, you would normally (within your specific WDC) interact with a business object. One common way of doing this is to store the interface of whichever business object you need to interact with, as an attribute of the assistance class. then, whenever you need to capture values or modify anything, you call the respective method of the object stored in the assistance class. This also separates the business logic from the WDC itself.
