I can't find Adobe Flex within SAP NetWeaver Developer Studio.

I am using Version: 7.0.09

Build id: 200608262203

Is it necessary to download additional software for it?

Hi Erdem,

For flex related queries, you can ask question in forum Rich Internet Application Development. Following is the link.

Flex development is not part of SAP Netweaver Development Studio. You should have Flex Builder for it which can be downloaded from Adobe site. I think it is available for 60 days trial period.

P.S. You do not have to do anything with Visual Composer. Please do not get confused.

Flex support is available for Visual composer rendering.

Try creating a model in VC and then select flex while rendering the UI

NetWeaver provides the ability to develop portal content without programming through Visual Composer (Outside-in approach).


• Visual Composer is a visual modeling tool that enables sophisticated

content development for the SAP NW Portal merely by dragging and

dropping appropriate objects and establishing relationships between them.

No programming required.

• Visual Composer is completely Web based. Business experts can sit next to

the business users and access Visual Composer from any machine to build or

customize to reflect the business needs on demand

• The purpose of Visual Composer is to provide a visual tool that enable

customers quick and easy content development thereby

– Minimize the time and effort to create content

– Lead to quicker go live decision

– Reduce Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)

– Increase ROI

Visual Composer as Modelling Tool

Models designed in Visual Composer can be deployed to run in one or more technology engines, including SAP HTML/B and Flex. The same model can be deployed to more than one environment, although not all components and controls are fully supported in each. Visual Composer implements a proprietary XML-based Visual Composer Language as its source code for creating the models. Only at deployment is the model actually compiled into the executable code required by the selected UI technology. The result is a model once run

anywhere capability.The models that you build in Visual Composer are generated in Generic Modeling Language (GML) code. To deploy your application to a portal, the GML code

must be compiled into a language supported by the portal. During compilation, warnings and possible errors may be discovered, enabling you to check the model validity. The compiled content is deployed directly to the portal, in the runtimeenvironment that you select.In runtime, transactional content can run through HTML/B and Flex, while

analytic content which may require a more animated environment may run through Flex. The models deployed by Visual Composer to the portal include runtime metadata, which is stored with the model in the PCD and exported in the business package, for delivery to customers.
