Hi,

Someone told me that I should use Visual Composer for EP 6 sp2 iview development. I was trying to use Eclipse, JBuilder or even SAP NW Dev Studio, but I didn't realize the existence of Visual Composer.

In the install guide, it mentions something like "Pilot clients".. I'm worried if I should use it or not =(

My questions are:

1. Do you know if VC 6.0 is a production version ?

2. Do you know if VC 6.0 is powerful enough to generate code ? (good code performance)

3. In which specific situations should I use VC 6.0 instead of doing everything manually with an java IDE ?

Thanks a lot for your help!

Regards from Mexico,

Diego

Hi Diego,

Answer for your second question:

Visual Composer generates code as well as a debugger, tester, and documentation creator.

Third Question:About Visual Composer

Visual Composer is a visual modeling tool(Drag and drop model)

Visual Composer is completely Web-based

To get a Visual Composer Server up and running

1. Installing Visual Composer Storyboard on the portal server or on a different machine. This machine is the Visual Composer Server

2. Installing Visual Composer Storyboard

3. Install the Storyboard online help module
