New FPM Application Creation Tool in 7.31
As always every upgrade gives us something new, so is our recent upgrade to Netweaver 7.31(ECC EHP 6). As a part of my exploration(in order to find out the major changes), I started building a new FPM based WD ABAP application ! I created a new a WD Component implementing the interface – IF_FPM_UI_BUILDING_BLOCK. Quickly built the WD Context node and related UI element. When it’s time to create the actual WD Application, I started hunting for the Application Creation Tool(Used to be WD App – FPM_CFG_APPL_CREATION_TOOL in 7.02), but to my surprise, I don’t see this application anymore under the FPM_OIF_COMPONENT(My assumption was there would some changes to the existing application, but I don’t find the existing application all together) . Started digging more out for more information on the new ACT, finally found some interesting information in the latest FPM Cookbook (http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-30668 ). As addressed in this cookbook, the new ACT application is FPM_CFG_BO_MODEL_ACT –
Starting the ACT
1. Open the ABAP Workbench (transaction SE80) and open the APB_FPM_CONF package.
2. Navigate to the Web Dynpro -> Web Dynpro Applications folder in the hierarchy and choose the FPM_CFG_BO_MODEL_ACT WD application.
3. Choose Test from the context menu.
Following these steps (Of course activated the new SICF Service) to see the beautiful new UI –
Went ahead giving in my WD Application related info –
As the final step, I went ahead linking this new configuration to a Transport request –
Clicked on “Save” button to see the following screen – Allowing me to “Launch the Configuration editor” and “Execute Application”.
I will continue the Steps ahead in my next blog…
"Of course activated the new SICF Service, to see the beautiful new UI" <-- How do you activate this.
You might want to go SICF transaction to activate this service.
Shouldn't this be in the Floorplan Manager for Web Dynpro ABAP space?
This should be under FPM space. I created this blog under ABAP space assuming broader audience would get access. Anyways, shall post my future blogs in appropriate space.
What SICF services do we need to activate to get the new FPM UI?
