It's my pleasure to announce that portalteam.dk has aquired access to the Google Wave sandbox. It looks very promising and we're exited to play with the sandbox.
Stay tuned for reviews and other stuff.
SAP NetWeaver Portal in words and images
// get the image data from somewhere
byte data = new byte;
// Create a cached web resource using the WDResourceFactory
IWDResource res = WDResourceFactory.createCachedResource
(data, "image.gif", WDWebResourceType.GIF_IMAGE);
String url = res.getUrl(0); // 0 means "AUTO"
As a portal developer, it is usually the standard, that you have unlimited rights to the development server you are working on.
But what happens when this isn’t the case? Well - SAP has provided a client tool for connecting client side to the SDM, without having OS access to the server you are working on.
Thus they eliminated the need for hacking the installation out from the server You are working with.
The old way of doing this, would be to extract - and package the SDMinstallation yourself, but when working with a client where you cannot access the server’s filesystem, the new method is preferred.
To install the SDM locally, go to http://service.sap.com - and browse the following tree:
SAP Support Portal -> Downloads -> Support Packages and Patches -> Entry by Application Group -> SAP NetWeaver -> SAP NETWEAVER -> SAP NETWEAVER 7.0 (2004S) -> Entry by Component -> Developer Workplace -> SAP SOFTW. DELIV. MANAGER 7.00 -> #OS Independent
Find the support stack level you need, and you will get the client installation (add it to your download basket, and download it with SAPDownload manager).
The installation is a .jar file, which is kinda strange - because of what you need to do next.
Unpack the archive to a temporary folder, for example c:\temp.
Open up the folder, and launch the file “Install.bat”.
Accept all default values (press ENTER 7 or 8 times), and the installation script will start.
After it’s done, the sdm can now be launched from c:\sdm_home\remotegui.bat
And that’s it
