Can't find mistake when create multiply iViews from one Web Dynpro app


I need to create a multiply iViews for my app.

In the I found: "However, a content administrator could create individual iViews from each view. In this case, the root view (and its other UI elements) is not displayed, and the administrator can rearrange the iViews on the portal page."

As I understand it's mean that I must make a root ViewContainerUIElement object for every view from which I want to make iView.

I create simple WD project, wich has only 2 views (call it "content views"). For every of views I want to create an iView.

Steps, wich I made:

1) create another 2 views (call it "root views"), wich have only ViewControllerUIElement containers

2) embed content views in these containers - one view per container. So I've got followed structure: root view #1 with embedded content view #1 and root view #2 with content view #2. One of the root views is default

3) set application property sap.canBeSplitInIViews to true

4) deploy app

5) in the portal go new iView->Web Dynpro Java application->Create one iView from each application view. Next I select my app, expand it and see only one view wich have default property set to true, but want to see all views...

(if I set default property to false for all root views then I see anything in the last step)

What I do wrong??

Thanks & regards,

What you have to do is, other than the two views, create another one, call this MasterView, create two ViewContainers in it and embed View1 and View2 in these. Make MasterView default view in the windows. Deploy and you should see both views as 2 'iview'able views in the portal (while creating iview).

Also, please go through this document (page 21 on).

Good luck,
