The configuration information for reporting services within the WebDynpro for ABAP version of Employee Self-Service is divided into three broad sections:


To fully understand the information given in this section, you need to be familiar with the Floorplan Manager (FPM), a framework which allows you to build ABAP Web Dynpro applications which are SAP UI guideline compliant. For more information see SAP Library for SAP NetWeaver on SAP Help Portal at Start of the navigation path published on SAP site Next navigation step SAP NetWeaver by Key Capability Next navigation step Application Platform by Key Capability Next navigation step ABAP Technology Next navigation step UI Technology Next navigation step WEB UI Technology Next navigation step Floorplan Manager for Web Dynpro ABAP End of the navigation path.


In order to build your own customer-specific reporting services, proceed as follows:

  1. Build your knowledge of the SAP Floorplan Manager for Web Dynpro ABAP (FPM) by reading the documentation in the SAP NetWeaver Library (you will find the complete documentation under the navigation path given above).

  2. Read the sections on Architecture and Implementation of a Simple Reporting Service.

  3. Create your own configuration based on the information you gathered in steps 1 and 2.

  4. If required, refine your configuration by making yourself familiar with the specialized information in section Detailed Configuration.

  5. Fill Method GET_DATA of your implementation with life, based on the information that you can find under Refining Method GET_DATA.

  6. Test your new application.

Note Note

Steps 1 – 3 are the basic steps for creating a service and getting an output list. But the Detailed Configuration section provides you with information that you will also need when building your own application, especially the section on Refining Method GET_DATA, where you define the processing of the whole application. So do not skip these sections.

End of the note.
