Component documentation Web Dynpro for ABAP 

Purpose

Web Dynpro ABAP is the SAP standard UI technology for developing Web applications in the ABAP environment. It consists of a runtime environment and a graphical development environment with special Web Dynpro tools that are integrated in the ABAP Workbench (SE80).

Web Dynpro offers the following advantages for application developers:

  The use of declarative and graphical tools significantly reduces the implementation effort

  Web Dynpro supports a structured design process

  Strict separation between layout and business data

  Reuse and better maintainability by using components

  The layout and navigation is easily changed using the Web Dynpro tools

  Stateful applications are supported – that is, if the page is changed and the required data remains intact so that you can access it at any time throughout the entire application context.

Note that stateless applications are not possible.

  Automatic data transport using data binding

  Automatic input check

  User interface accessibility is supported

  Full integration in the reliable ABAP development environment
