Discover the basic features of the Ajax Framework Page (AFP), one of the major features of SAP NetWeaver Portal. AFP is standard in release 7.3 and offers improvements over the previous framework.

Ajax Framework Page (AFP) is one of the most prominent features of SAP NetWeaver Portal. Though AFP was initially shipped in enhancement package 2 for SAP NetWeaver Portal 7.0, SAP officially moved to the Ajax Framework as the default framework in the 7.3 release. The major reason for shipping AFP in enhancement package 2 was to enable developers to understand how this framework is different from the older one and to facilitate the switch to AFP when you upgrade from 7.0 to 7.3.

I’ll explain the basics of the Ajax framework, its components, and the communication flow between different components.
