SAP ABAP Web Dynpro Interview Questions and Answers

1. Types of ABAP UI Technologies? 

Ans: Web Dynpro for ABAP, BSP

2. What is ABAP Web Dynpro?


Ans: ABAP Web Dynpro is the SAP UI technology used to develop the Web based applications in the SAP environment. ABAP Web Dynpro Components and Design tools can be accessed using the ABAP workbench transaction SE80.

3. MVC Architecture Concepts and usage of the same in ABAP Web Dynpro


Ans: As per the MVC Architecture there is a clear separation between flow logic, view and the Business Logic. View holds all the UI elements that are visible in the UI, Controllers have the flow logic. Business logic is held in the Model which is in the form of Assistance class in Web Dynpro context.

4. What are the Advantages of ABAP Web Dynpro?



1. Web Dynpro programming model uses MVC (Model View controller) design paradigm.

2. Clear separation between the flow logic and the business logic. Here the flow logic is written in the views, windows, components and the business logic is mostly written in Assistance class.

3. Complete integration of web based framework into ABAP workbench.

4. Reuse of the existing back end programs (ex: function modules, classes).

5. Reuse of the WD components possible (Component Usage).

6. No Java stack required to run Web Dynpro applications.


5. What does a Model Class Consists of?


Ans: Model Class is the Assistance class in Web Dynpro. It contains the Business logic in the form of methods, Global data & Constants in the form of Class Attributes. The Model class can be accessed in Web Dynpro component using the attribute WD_ASSIST->.

6. What is an Assistance Class and how is it Instantiated in Web Dynpro?


Ans: Assistance Class is the model class which would act as the data provider for the Web Dynpro component and it is instantiated by the Web Dynpro component during the run time and no explicit instantiation is required.

7. How do you navigate between Different Views in Web Dynpro?


Ans: Navigation between Views is achieved through Plugs (Inbound and Outbound).

8. Usage of Plugs in Web Dynpro?


Ans: Plugs are used to Navigate between the views. Parameters can be passed using the plugs similar to interface parameters of function module or a class method.

9. What is the Usage of Web Dynpro Component Controller?

Ans: Component controller is used to the store the Global attributes and Methods of the component. Attributes/methods declared in the component controller are visible through out the component and they are accessed using the attribute WD_COMP_CONTROLLER outside of component controller (like views, windows etc). All the context nodes defined in the component controller are visible in all the views and windows of the component. Ex: if a variable called GV_COUNT is defined in the component controller, it can be accessed in the view using the syntax WD_COMP_CONTROLLER->GV_COUNT.

10. How do you access a Context Nodes and elements programmatically?


Ans: Code required for accessing the Context Nodes can be written using the Web Dynpro code wizard. For Ex: if there exists a Node NODE1 with cardinality 1:1 and has 3 Attributes to it Att1, Att2, Att3. The attributes can be accessed using the below code. DATA: LO_ND_NODE1 TYPE REF TO IF_WD_CONTEXT_NODE. DATA: LO_EL_NODE1 TYPE REF TO IF_WD_CONTEXT_ELEMENT. DATA: LS_NODE1 TYPE WD_THIS->ELEMENT_NODE1. LO_ND_NODE1 = WD_CONTEXT->GET_CHILD_NODE ( NAME = WD_THIS->WDCTX_NODE1 ). LO_EL_NODE1 = LO_ND_NODE1->GET_ELEMENT( ). **READ NODE1 LO_EL_NODE1->GET_STATIC_ATTRIBUTES( IMPORTING STATIC_ATTRIBUTES = LS_NODE1 ). **WRITE TO NODE1 LO_EL_NODE1->SET_STATIC_ATTRIBUTES( EXPORTING STATIC_ATTRIBUTES = LS_NODE1 ).

11. What is the purpose of message Areas in Web Dynpro?


Ans: Message areas are created in views to display messages (Error, Success, Warning, and Info). WD allows having multiple Message errors in a view but throws an error when the view is displayed. Use the code wizard to get code for raising error messages. Few of the message classes and methods are: Interface: IF_WD_MESSAGE_MANAGER. Methods: report_t100_message.(used to report message from the message class)

12. Concept of OTR(Online Text Repository) and its Usage

Follow the below steps to create a transaction.

21. Difference between the View Container and the Transparent Container?

 Ans: View Container holds the views, there can be multiple views assigned to the view container but only one view can be active (viewed) at a time. Transparent holds the Web Dynpro UI elements, A layout type can be associated with it.

22. How do you Navigate between two Web Dynpro Components

 Ans: You can use Interface views to navigate between components or create a navigation class and do a explicit call.

23. Creating a tree in Web Dynpro

 Ans: Tree UI element is used to create Tree in Web Dynpro. Tree can be defined as part of the table column. 

24. Usage of Exit Plug in a Web Dynpro Window


Ans: Exit plugs are outbound plugs used to close the Web Dynpro application. They can be called from the view which are embedded in the window Note: Exit plugs won't work in portal environment. Exit plugs can also be used to pass the call to another URL. Here is the sample code snippet of the exit plug call: METHOD ONEXIT . DATA URL TYPE STRING. DATA CLOSE_WINDOW TYPE WDY_BOOLEAN. URL = 'URL_NAME'. CLOSE_WINDOW = ABAP_FALSE. WD_THIS->FIRE_TO_EXIT_PLG( URL = URL CLOSE_WINDOW = CLOSE_WINDOW ). ENDMETHOD.

109. What are the objects available for interface enabled in a WD component?


Ans: Context node, Methods and Events created in component controller can be made interface enabled.

110. Let us assume we have component 1 and component2.


How to access the context node info of component1 in component 2? Ans:

1. Make a context node of component1 as interface enabled.

2. Create a component usage for component1 in component2.

3. Create a controller usage and do the context mapping from componen1 to component2.

4. Now context node ofcomponent1 is available in component2, so that you are allowed to access the context node info of component1 into component2.


111. Is there any other way, we can send the context node info of component1 to component2 without making context node as interface enabled?


Ans: Yes.

1. Create an event in component controller of component1 and make it interface enabled.

2. Create an importing parameters for this event according to which data you want to send.

3. Create a component usage for component1 in component2.

4. IF the control is lying at component1 and action is performed, Upon performing this action create an event handler in component2 and assign event.

5. Now when you execute the application and action is performed, it will fire this event (component1) and this event handler (component2) get’s executed.


112. Can you access the method created in component1 from component2.


Ans: Yes. If the method created in component1 is interface enabled. Create a component reuse for component1 in component2. Now, check component reuse exist for component1. With the help of WD code wizard, you can call the interface method of component1 from component2.

113. Assume there is an interface event in component1. Is it possible to fire this event form component2?


Ans: No You can only catch the event in component2 fired from component1. By creating event handler in component2, you can catch the event fired in component1. Event can be fired only from owning component but not possible from using component.
