Newbie WebDynpro question

I created a simple hello world WebDynpro application from tutorial.

(https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/com.sap.km.cm.docs/library/webas/a-c/creating your First Web Dynpro Application.pdf)

I can deploy and test this webDynpro app from NWDS. It runs fine. It creates a EAR file.

But I want to create a PAR file instead and use it to build a IView. I cannot get project to export par file.

How to generate a PAR file from WebDynpro application?

[From discussion in the following thread it seems like should be possible to create PAR file

https://www.sdn.sap.com/sdn/collaboration.sdn?node=linkFnode6-1&contenttype=url&content=https:///message/596174#596174 [original link is broken]

]

Thanks for any pointers as to how exactly to get PAR file from WebDynPro application.

    Hi darcy,

    To create a par file from NWDS first you'll have to change the perspective to Enterprise portal. After that you can create your project ie. portal application project. Under that you can create your portal application object which can be Abstractportalcomponent or dynpage or jspdynpage,do appropriate design work and coding. After that you can export the par file. Right click on project and do export. Set you server settings like give the user name, password, machine name.

    After deploying the par, you can go to ContentAdministration -> PortalContent and choose the option 'create iview from par' and do so.

    Hope you find this post useful.

    Regards,

    Rahul.

    Hi Darcy,

    This PAR file we generate only for portal application projects.If you want to show your application in an iview in portal then deploy your application on the server and create a webdynpro iview

    Hi

    If your requirement is to create a PAR file, then it has to be done in the Portal Perspective of NWDS, not WebDynpro.

    If all you need is to create an IView of your application in the portal, you can do the same with your WebDynpro application. The tutorial for this is available in NWDS Help->SAP WAS application->Tutorials-> Special->Running a Web Dynpro Application in SAP Enterprise Portal

    Hope this helps

    Thanks and Regards

    Leena

    Hi Darcy,

    Hope Leena and Rahul explained well tht u can't create a par file from Webdynpro perspective.

    To give you further idea,Webdynpro project which will be as modules are being integrated in Enterprise portal for getting richer look & feel and user defined personlization.The way how it is acheived is

    webdynpro project is being placed on a iview in EP and then it is made as .par(portal archieve file) and later deployed to Web appl server.

    Hope it gives u a clear idea now how a webdynpro appl is being converted to a .par file in EP & why.

    Regards,

    Guru

    Hi Darcy,

    The link you have given is a discussion on how to upload a portal application (created in the Portal perspective of NWDS) to the portal. It is not a WebDynpro application at all.

    Thanks and Regards

      Par file is portal archive file which is for portal applictions. From webDynpro you can create ear files only.

      If your requirement is to create webDynpro Iview use the SAP WebDynrpo Iview , give the application name and the project name and use the SAP LocalSystem. This would help you to create an Iview for webDynpro application.

      Hope that helps you.
