  • HI ,
    I want to build an webdynpro application such that the workflow mails could be access by the Blackberry phones and must be able to send response .

    • Hi Raj,
      I suggest you better ask this question in the Web Dynpro Forum here on SDN. Blackberry can be used to run your WD apps online, but for your special question the experts on forum will be able to help you.
      Kind Regards

  • Hi, our site will start ECC 6.0 upgrade soon, we are currently on 46C and have apps on Java WebDynpro and JSPDynpage, which presented support issue for that my team mostly are ABAP-central. I would like to migrate all apps to ABAP WebDynpro, but would like to know SAP’s vision of future on ABAP Webdynpro, is it a safe route to go down?

  • Dear all,

    Most of the web dynpro applications when it goes for performance tetsing, they fail to cheer teh customer. Here, I would liek to know from the expert team what causes this hit on the performance or is it purely the fault of the programmer?

    Thanks.

    • Hi Sharath,
      it depends 😉
      There are many possible sources for performance issues, but the Web Dynpro Framework itself is – in most cases – not the bad guy.
      I recommend to read the second edition of Chris Whealy’s book “Inside Web Dynpro for Java” to get a clear picture where the typical performance issues come from. 
      Kind regards

      • Aren’t ALL Java-based technologies slow nd cumbersome, at least compared with the solid, well-oiled ABAP framework? At least, this is my perception… most Java/J2EE frameworks I’ve seen are characterized by slow development, slow to maintain, slow to deploy…
  • Hi,

    I have been programming several applications in JAVA WD.
    My query prompts with the discussion with my counter ABAPers who redeem saying SAPs inclination to ABAP rather than JAVA.

    Is JAVA WD goin to get scaled down.What is the possibility and Future for WD JAVA??
