Which is better way of creating BSP iView

Hi Experts,

Can you please let me know how I can create BSP iView.

Approach 1:

One of creating BSP iView is as follows:

For this we have to say Create iView --> Select iView Template --> Select SAP BSP iView

Set following properties:

System: somesystem

Business Server Page (BSP) Application: ztest

Start Page: ztest.htm

Now we can call the iView in Page etc.

Approach 2:

Other way of creating BSP iView is that we can create URL for BPS application.

For this we should login into SAP BW. Go to transaction code bps_wb and then open the Web Interface. Then we can go to Edit --> Display in external browser.

Some link will appear. The link will look like:

http://mycompany:1080/sap(bD1lbiZjPTEwMCZkPW1pbiZpPTEmcz1TSUQlM2FBTk9OJTNhYmF1YzMzZzBfT0JTXzAwJTNhaX...

We can create URL iView. We can directly provide this link in the URL iView.

I want to know which approach is correct and why? In second apprach we are not providing the details like

System: somesystem

Business Server Page (BSP) Application: ztest

Start Page: ztest.htm

From the link, iView finds out the entire detail.

Pls help me.

Thanks

Hi,

Approach 1 is the correct method to do this.

Approach 2 has several flaws:

  • The URL you get contains a session ID which will only be valid for a certain time periode. It will also be shared by all users of the portal

( if approach 1 is used, each user correctly gets his own session (if application is not stateless)

  • Most portal installation will have a production line with Dev, QA and production systems. You want dev portal systems to always talk with dev ABAP BSP system, QA with QA and so one

In approach 2 you hardcode against one system, so you will have to change the iView in QA and prod systems when you transport it
