Set/Get Session Variable in Portal
I would greatly appreciate any help with the following problem. Here is a brief description of my task:
<b>1.</b> Design Portal Application for EP 7 (SP6) that:
a. Obtains an custom ID value from R/3 using either RFC or web service and
b. Set this custom ID value as a session variable for a given user
<b>2.</b> Design iViews to pull the session variable and send it as a URL parameter to the target application
I am not really sure whether to design my Portal Application (Bullet 1.) as an iView or Web Dynpro application and would appreciate any guidance. For each of the two methods, I have thought of some questions:
<b>A)</b> Java iView
i. Can an iView import an Adaptive RFC model like a Web Dynpro Java application can?
ii. Is developing a Application Integrator iView the best way to store/retrieve a custom, session variable for Bullet 2. ?
<b>B)</b> Web Dynpro Java
i. Can WDJ store a custom, session variable that can be retrieved by an iView?
Thanks for all your help.
