Portal Development Series Back After a Hiatus

I have been thinking about writing more blog entries in one of the series I started last year – Beginning EP Development or Java Developer learning ABAP. Since I have been busy with one thing or another (who isn’t these days?) and just haven’t had the time. However, when I saw that the topic of the month is Java, I just couldn’t resist 🙂

Here’s a list of what the Portal Development series has covered so far:

Here’s a roundup of what I’m planning to write about this month.

  • JSP DynPage Example – getting and posting data from RFCs or BAPIs
  • JSP DynPage Example – getting and posting data from a Database

I’m thinking that I want to port a simple Blog Application that I built in ColdFusion/Oracle as well as PHP/MySQL into the SAP environment. I’m not planning any ABAP Development blog entries this month – perhaps next month, I will write the same application using ABAP and the BSP technology.

      As wiki pages it is easier to find the content later on. As a blog I will have possible problems finding this in 6+ month's time, but as a set of wiki pages I will know where to find it.

      Hey Mike - did you see that link just up there? Hit that and tag it with SDN and then you will be able to find it anywhere, anytime. I have several 'favorite' blogs that I save like this and I find it the best way to find the information later.

      Kind regards,

      and we are still waiting for a blog!!!!
      By the way since you are familiar with both BSP (the ABAP based web application) and JSP/portal etc, would it be possible to write a blog that compares both environments, the effort involved (lines of code etc.) and efficiency of similar application developed in BSP and NDS. (in near or not so near future 🙂 depending upon your availability )

      Excellent blog!  I will definately read all your notes to become familiar with Portal development.

      I am new to SAP Enterprise Portal (Netweaver) and am looking for advice on SAP courses to take.
      I am looking to start with SAPEP (SAP NetWeaver Portal Fundamentals).  Do you know of anyone that has taken this course and could you tell me if it is beneficial to take as a preview to JA100 (SAP J2SE fundamentals)?  Can I continue with the Java courses without this class, etc?
      Is SAPEP worth the costs?

      Any advice would be much appreciated.

      Thanks in advance.
