WebDynpro Java Applications on non-SAP (non-WAS Java) server?

Hello Experts-

I was informed on the WebDynpro forum in SDN that it is not possible to deploy WebDynpro Java applications on non-SAP (non-WAS Java) J2EE compliant server. Is this accurate?

Is it possible to deploy a WebDynpro Java application on, for instance, WebLogic or WebSphere or JBoss or JRun or any of the other J2EE compliant servers?

If not, what is the possibility of this becoming possible in the near future?

Thank you,

- Vik.

    Web Dynpro applications require the Web Dynpro runtime which is part of the SAP Web AS and not available on other J2EE servers.

      Ramakrishna,

      This means you can't build a J2EE compliant Enterprise Application with Web Dynpro (http://java.sun.com/j2ee/j2ee-1_4-fr-spec.pdf)? Why wouldn't you want to do this? I personally feel this is a major drawback of Web Dynpro. You are losing the oppurtunity for positioning Web Dynpro as an professional UI development environment and degrading it to a SAP tool with SAP Portal integration. Doesnt seem like a good base for developers to join in. I rather build my apps with JSF+AJAX which i can 'run anywhere' (<- Sounds familiar?).

      Regards,

      Endy
