Import/Export Local Development Component

Former Member

we developed a Portal service that we want to expose as Webservice.

According to we created a local DC in our NWDS containing our

Portal Service. We also generated the Webservice.

We have have SAP NETWEAVER 7.0 (SP10) and no NWDI.

Now we want to export the whole local DC project from our NWDS to the

NWDS of a colleague.

How can we do this? There is no "Local Development Component Export

option" in our NWDS neither any "Import" possibility.

Does anyone know something about that?

Kind regards,

Torsten Hoffmann

You could try exporting the DC Project.

Select the DC project and select Export from the File Menu. Then select export as file system and select the entire DC folder in the left hand side window.

the Export as file sytem did not work. We also tried some other exporting scenarios. Do you you have another idea?

Hi Torsten,

1) Close NWDs.

2) Take project of your colleague, delete .project & . classpath files, copy it in your ../Local Development/ ... folder (you should have the same folder structure as your colleague).

3) Then edit your .syncdb file and add entry for this project (copy it from the file of your colleague).

4) Launch NWDS.

I've made such thing a lots of time and it works for sure.
