    The process for launching the external URLs should be same as Web Dynpro Transactions. But in this case while defining the URLs in the transaction launcher , you have to select the option for Non BSP URLs & defiine a MAPPED Logsys( In your case the could be any system in which the application exists). Also the URL for Web Dynpro applicatons is sap/bc/webdynpro/sap/Web_Dynpro_Component_Name and is recognized by the target system. In your case you have to build a URL which should be recognized by your target system.

    This is how I have launched a ABAP webdynpro transaction. I guess if the URL is correct you can launch other external transactions.

      In the code where you defined the button use below sample code

      ls_button-on_client_click = ' ("","Google","width=750,height=600,resizable=yes");Google.focus()'.

    You can use an iframe in a BSP page to load the external URL.
