I made this blog from the presentation I gave to one of our clients in their initial stage of SAP portal implementation. They are preety new to SAP and they wanted to decide which development methodology to use i.e. JSR168 or VC or jspdynpage or all of them. So, I gave a presentation about pros and cons of each of them. Please find below details.

 Please find below the slide I presented to them.

      I agree. My view is you don’t do portal development, you do web development to be launched from a portal. Ideally in an SAP centric world that means Web Dynpro, but if you want .Net etc, use that.

    Yes, we dont do generally web development for external facing portals, instead we use Jspdynpages as regular practice.

      I’m not sure I’d agree with doing JspDynPage fro new developments – you’re really commiting yourself to the SAP portal architecture..

      Than you should not call the presentation “SAP Portal Development Technologies”, because Webdynpro is part (probably the most important) of SAP Portal Development Technologies.

        I understand your point, however like I mentioned in blog that this presentation I have had given to one of my customers based on their requirements and product selection criteria. So, it is not necessary to consider this blog as comparision of all the development technology.

        I know webydnpro is very important dev technology but however its not always suitable for all scenarios mainly in external facing portals. Also with NW CE release – customers dont always want to have vendor locking by using vendor specific development tools, instead they prefer to use JEE 5.0 development technologies like JSF, Richfaces etc.
