 Reusability in Web ApplicationsLocate this document in the navigation structure


To decrease the total cost of ownership (TCO) you should consider to what extent you can reuse the created Web application.

Process Flow

If a Web application only differs from another one in only a few objects (a different data provider is displayed, for example, or a pushbutton does not appear or another Web item is used to display the data), you can create a second Web template by only using the Web Template Web item there.

  • Drag the Web Template Web item into the second Web template using Drag&Drop.
  • You assign the first Web template to this Web item under the Web Template (TEMPLATE_ID) parameter. 
  • Save the Web template and open it again.

    Now you see all the elements that exist in the first Web template. Here you can overwrite individual Web items or data providers. For more information, see Web Template .
