Web Pages

When designing and developing Web pages, or changing existing pages, use the generic page layout as a guide, and follow the style guidelines.

Although designers may use HTML rendering and mock-up, they should be familiar with the current Web layout; otherwise, they may need to extensively modify the underlying application structure. Web developers need not be expert in Wicket application development techniques, especially with respect to integrating customized functions and HTML templates that use Wicket components.

When you customize Web page templates, SAP recommends you follow these Wicket best practices:
  • Reuse code at either the panel or the component level.
  • Use lists to provide standard access to aggregates through a shared DataProvider class, for each data object.
  • Follow the existing localization guidelines for consistent application maintenance and control.
