Suppose you have a requirement to extend a BSP by calling a specific transaction, such as calling certain infotypes in SAP ERP Human Capital Management (SAP ERP HCM) from SAP E-Recruitment for certain events. You can call SAP transactions or portal iViews to shrink the overhead of developing them in a BSP environment. After calling the transaction via the BSP, the transaction acts the same as if you were in SAP ERP — all the authorization and validation checks work.
I will show you how to call any SAP screen or portal iView through a BSP. I will explain the BSP concepts and tools you need to enhance your BSP skills and aid you in integrating BSPs with SAP NetWeaver Portal. All the examples are taken from SAP ERP 6.0 and SAP NetWeaver Portal 5.0. To carry out this process, you should be familiar with ABAP programming standards and SAP NetWeaver Portal.
