  • Thanks so much for this extreme detailed and fine prepared blog! I didn't know that is possible to show a Web Dynpro via SAP Gui, maybe I have to do it in a upcoming project.

  • We can also run WD application by inserting into favourite.
    There is a "Add other Objects" option in the Favourites on SAP Start screen.
    Then we have to choose type "Webdynpro Application"
    • Hello Renjith,

      First of all, thank you so much for read it!

      Yes, it's possible to add a web dynpro application in the favourites menu but sometimes we need to integrate a web dynpro application with a program that only runs over SAPGUI (a module pool for example) with the code showed in this you can do it very easy.

      You can, for example, create a web dynpro application for the new requirements from the customer and if necessary to integrate it with other applications (module pool/reports) already developed, just add this via enhancements.

      Regards and thank you.
