I don’t know how many people realize it, but SAP NetWeaver Product Management provides a free webinar series in partnership with ASUG (Americas’ SAP Users’ Group). This webinar series is no longer restricted to just ASUG members, so everyone on SDN is invited to join in. You can find more details about the Webinar series at this link:
The specified item was not found.

As you can see from this link, we list upcoming webinars as well as host recordings of past webinars. Also as you can see from this page, the topics tend to focus on upcoming or hot topics but also try to address topics of considerable interest within our user base.

On August 21st I will demo new features in Web Dynpro ABAP for this webinar.  Here are the webinar details:

I realize that right now we only have toll free numbers for the US and I have a request out to our organizers to find out if we also have tool free numbers for other countries.  I will update the blog with those numbers if they exist.

Now for the content of the session.  Many of you might already know that SAP Enhancement Package 1 for NetWeaver 7.0 is very close to entering Ramp-Up.  One of the major new feature areas within this Enhancement Package is considerable amount of new capabilities in Web Dynpro ABAP.  

At TechEd you will get several opportunities to try out these new features (SDN Community Day Mentor Hands-On Workshop, COMP274, COMP277), but this webinar offers you a first chance to see them in action and learn some of the new coding techniques that will make the features possible.  I plan to keep the PowerPoint slides to the bare minimum and spend the majority of the hour showing live demos and looking at the code behind the demos.  I also want to leave time for an extensive question and answer session.

So what are some of the things you can expect to see during this webinar:

  • The new Lightspeed, AJAX enabled rendering framework
  • New UI elements like the slider control
  • Drag and Drop (Custom Built, Drag and Collect Pattern, Column Arrangement)
  • ACF based Client Side program execution and File Upload and Download
  • Adobe FlashIslands
  • Keyboard support
  • The Flex Client for Web Dynpro
  • NetWeaver Business Client Smart Client Rendering Canvas
