Accessing interface controller in different WD DC

Former Member

I have the following question related to using coding from WD DC1 in DC2 (just two example DCs) since I have problems accessing the interface controller of a different WD DC.

What steps are necessary to use the interface controller of DC1 (to be more precise the interface controller of a particular WD component within a WD DC) in DC2 and even more important in which order?

My assumption:

1) Expose interface controller as public part of DC1.

How is this done? Via exposing the whole WD Component in the public part wizard?

2) Build DC1.

3) Add DC1 to "Used DCs" for DC2.

4) Now the DC1's interface controller should be accessible? Am I right?

Unfortunately is the corresponding interface controller not visible in DC2.

Any help is really appreciated.

Kind regards,

Hi Michel,

Please check the steps mentioned by Nibu.

1.After creating the publicpart of DC1 do a DC build on DC1

2.After adding the publicpart of the DC1 to DC2.....Rightclick on the DC2 and Refersh the DC settings once.

Hi Nibu & Anilkumar,

thanks for your quick help. Indeed, I wasn't aware that I have to add an additional reference under "Used Web Dynpro Components". So I have and everything is fine!

Thanks again, I really appreciate your quick help!

Best regards,

Hi Michael,

After adding the first DC's component to DC2's used DC's, did you select the same under the used WebDynpro Components of the component controller? If not :

Under the component controller of your second DC, right click on "used WebDynpro Components", select "Add Used Component" and then on clicking on the browse button, in addition to the same component controller you will be able to see the component of the first DC too. Select this and provide a suitable name.

After this you will be able to access your first DC's interface controller in DC2.

Hope this helps,

Best Regards,
