If your organization is like most, you're probably migrating at least some of your applications to the web. Release 6.10 of the SAP Web Application Server (Web AS) offers some enhancements that will make your life as an application developer much easier. The SAP Web AS supports direct Internet communication, enabling it to function as a web server on either your local network or the Internet. To take advantage of this new technology, you need tools for developing web applications that provide direct and easy access to all SAP components. This article outlines the solution - a combination of Business Server Pages (BSPs) and JavaScript.
