ABAP Freak Show – May 20th – NetWeaver Business Client 3.0 Preview
In this episode of the ABAP Freak Show, we take an in depth look at the upcoming 3.0 release of the NetWeaver Business Client. This new version of the NWBC will ship later this year alongside NetWeaver 7.02 and 7.20 based applications. NWBC offers an alternative to using an Internet Browser (such as Firefox or Internet Explorer) for accessing your Portal roles and SAP business applications.
We look at the latest features of the NWBC in this eLearning video. We see how you can setup the NWBC to consume roles from either an ABAP backend system (PFCG) or from a NetWeaver Portal. We look at the new capabilities for SAPGUI for Windows integration, we see advantages to the streamlined navigation and desktop integration capabilities. We also see how external resources (like Twitter, Google, and other search tools) can be integrated into the NWBC.
Finally we look at the SmartClient rendering for Web Dynpro that will ship with NWBC 3.0. With this functionality Web Dynpro applications render with a very lite weight XML output. This XML gets interpreted within the NWBC and rendered as .Net and WPF (Windows Presentation Foundation) on the desktop. This gives you the choice of running Web Dynpro applications in a browser or as a true desktop application – without having to change any coding of the application.
