 SAP NetWeaver Business Client 3.5 (NWBC)

New Side Panel for enriching applications without ABAP modifications

The SAP NetWeaver Business Client (NWBC) is a rich desktop client that offers a unified environment for and a single point of entry to SAP applications. It provides a solution for hosting classical dynpros (SAP GUI UIs), Web Dynpro applications, BSP pages, portal pages, and other content. You can use the SAP NWBC either with or without the portal depending on whether you want to access ABAP back ends directly or not.
The SAP NWBC also supports generic desktop functions, like drag and drop, popup windows, and so on through the utilization of the corresponding APIs. The result is an efficient, modern and attractive client environment ideally suited to the power user.
