Web Dynpro User Interface Design

Web Dynpro is the SAP NetWeaver programming model for user interfaces (UIs). To build a view in Web Dynpro, you use containers, for which you can set specific layouts and you place UI elements inside, like tables, input fields or graphics. The complete world of markup languages, client-side-scripting and style sheets is separated and therefore Web Dynpro applications are client-independent.
