Is it still possible to generate add-on ARD?

Hello!

I know that SAP has discontinued the B1DE tool for creating add-ons in the .ARD extension. Additionally, I'm aware that SAP also recommends that add-ons be registered as LW (Light Weight), but my question is: Is it still possible to generate add-ons in .ARD extension nowadays?

I believe it was only possible through the B1DE tool, right? Now that it's no longer available, can we still generate the .ARD installer?

Thanks!

Hi,

This isnt really an answer, but why do you need to generate using the ARD.

Light Weight deployment is much easier to manage. I would recommend this over the traditional ARD build process.

Hi, @brendanbell!

Thanks for your answer! I know and i agree that generate LW version is better than ARD.

I'm just confused about what is the function of the AddOnRegDataGen.exe. At the SDK's folder, there are Extension Package (to generate the LW zip) and the AddOnRegDataGen.

No problem!

Do you still use the AddOnRegDataGen tool nowadays?

When I generate LW, i use only the ExtensionPackage. But let me know if you do something diferent.

 

I appreciate your help
