Execute WD4A without application
is it possible to execute a WD component without a web application ?? Under HAP* I found many components that have no application. Problably they are called from another development but I cannot find that other development.

The information in answers posted here so far is incorrect. You can ont execute WD Component without an application or embedding the component within another component (which in turn is within an Application). Without a WD Application, you don't have an SICF node or URL.
Using either the Portal or a Transaction Code (WDYID) both still require the connection via a Web Dynpro Application.
There are often many WD Components in SAP standard that don't have applications. This is becuase our application are often composed of multiple components. We also heavily use the Floorplan Manager. With the FPM, the Web Dynpro Application is attached to one of 3 standard SAP componentents, but then the "real" WD Components are loaded dynamically via a special type of component configuration. There are over 1500 FPM based applications in the Business Suite.
