Creating Forms for Integration with Web Dynpro and ZCILocate this document in the navigation structure


  • You are using SAP NetWeaver 7.0 SPS 8 or higher.

  • You are using SAPGUI Release 6.40 Support Package Level 20 or higher (see SAP Note 940637 ).

  • You are using Adobe LiveCycle Designer 7.1 (see SAP Note 962763 ).


This procedure is only relevant for forms created with Form Builder at design time and that run in a Web Dynpro application at runtime.

These include interactive forms in the ISR Framework, such as forms for the business package Manager Self-Service. They can be used (from SAP NetWeaver SPS 8) at runtime in Web Dynpro for Java based on Zero Client Installation (ZCI). To enable this, the forms must contain special scripting, which you insert when you create new forms in Form Builder.


You can use transaction SFP_ZCI_UPDATE to make any interactive forms you created with an older version of SAP NetWeaver ZCI-compliant.
