SAP Enterprise Portal 7.0 and 7.3 Development Part 2
Integration with Web Dynpro
Web Dynpro applications can easily be integrated into SAP NetWeaver Portal. With SAP NetWeaver 7.0 (2004s) the Web Dynpro Page Builder concept was introduced. You can find some basic information on the help.sap.com (Portal Integration of Web Dynpro Applications). In addition, please visit the SDN Page about Web Dynpro integration into the portal.
Connector Framework (Link to The Help Portal)
The connector framework provides the infrastructure to create platform independent connectors, which constitute the middleware that enable access to Web applications, whether these be the back-end applications of your organization or applications available through external Web services. The connectors comply with the Java 2 Platform Enterprise Edition (J2EE) standard which includes the J2EE Connector Architecture (JCA) specifications.
The Javadocs for the Connector Framework API is the primary reference for developers, with more detailed information for the writer of code.
With the Connector Wizard, a plug-in to SAP NetWeaver Developer Studio, you will be able to create a development project for a new connector. The project loads with the required source files and is automatically adjusted, according to your input, to the capabilities of the target enterprise information system.
You can find more information on this at help.sap.com (Connector Wizard).
