<b>BSP Trouble Shooting: Getting Help</b>
<i>Every other day, the simple question comes up: How to do X?, usually with the qualifiers Help!, Urgent! or ????. Most of these questions, when reading between the lines also contain the additional qualifier I have not read the documentation. Don't let this happen to you! This Weblog attempts to point to interesting and relevant sources of information to get BSP developers quickly up to speed. It is not an answer to any question; no, it is the pointer to the answers!</i>
<b>BSP Performance: Measuring Roundtrip Latency</b>
<i>This Weblog will show a step-by-step example of measuring the HTTP roundtrip latency for a "Hello World" BSP page. This can be used as baseline to determine the actual latency of the network and the BSP runtime.</i>
<b>BSP Performance: Statistic Records for Server Latency</b>
<i>In a previous Weblog we looked at the HTTP roundtrip latency for a "Hello World" BSP page. However, this included a large network component (especially when working from home!), and did not reflect the true server load per request. In this Weblog we use statistic records to show quickly what is the processing time on the server for each HTTP request.</i>
<b>BSP Performance: Determining Hotspots</b>
<i>Knowing the HTTP roundtrip latency and the server execution time is fine, but still does not satisfy our curiosity. What is the server doing? What is taking so long? Typically when colleagues have performance problems with the BSP applications, we show them first what is the real lantency of the BSP roundtime for a "Hello World" BSP page. Any larger number means application time. And of course comes now the confusing question: what is the application doing? This Weblog shows how to see exactly what the application is doing at a very fine granular level.</i>
<b>BSP a Developers Journal: Part I Introduction</b>
Welcome to the first of a series of weblogs on BSP development. This is a journal of sorts of our experiences during our rollout of the BSP development tool.
<b>BSP a Developers Journal: Part II - System Layout</b>
Part II of the BSP Developer's Journal. In this edition we look at the process to get our system environment setup.
<b>BSP - a Developer's Journal: Part III - Impact on our Development Team</b>
Welcome to the third in a series of weblogs on BSP development. In this installment we look at the early impact this new tool had on our development team.
<b>BSP a Developers Journal: Part IV- RFCs and the BAPI Browser</b>
In this weblog we will explorer RFC - the main tool a BSP developer will use to access application data from backend SAP systems.
<b>BSP Programming: RSS = HttpClient + XML + XSLT</b>
This weblog just highlights the use of BSP, XML, XSLT and the HTTP Client in one example. The coding reads a RSS feed from SDN and displays the data in a nicely formatted fashion.
<b>BSP a Developers Journal: Part VI - Example application with customer BSP Extensions and Design 2003 themes</b>
In this Weblog we will look a completed application focusing on the use of Customer created BSP Extensions and Design 2003 themes.
<b>BSP Programming: Crawling SDN</b>
In a first weblog, a simple web crawler was built using the browser (Html viewer control) integrated into the SAPGUI. In this weblog, the web crawler is used to pull some information from SDN. There after the HTMLB chart is used to see what has happened in the last year.
<b>BSP a Developers Journal: Part VII - Dealing with multiple languages (English, German, Spanish, Thai, and Polish)</b>
In this installment of the BSP Developer's Journal, we will look at the extensive Multi-language capabilities in the WebAS and BSP.
<b>BSP In-Depth: Using the HTMLB Event System</b>

By Siarhei Ulasenka
The purpose of this article is to demonstrate ease of use of Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) in a seemingly unsuitable environment like BSP and ABAP applications. You can start with this tutorial and decide if you need to get know SVG in more detail later. The first article shows you how to create and display a simple SVG graphics in a BSP application and in an ABAP report. In the second part you will become familiar with some server-side and client-side scripting and create a dynamic SVG flight chart.
The <phtmlb:ganttChart> also uses SVG for rendering. Also the SAP Visual Composer uses SVG to get that superb rendering. Interesting technology.
<b>BSP Programming: Writing Composite Elements</b>
Composite BSP elements are excellent cookie-cutters. Composite BSP elements are built by combining other BSP elements into new elements. A composite element represents a pattern that can be used many times, always giving the same results. The benefit of such composite BSP elements is that layout-relevant rendering can be grouped into one BSP element that can easily be changed even late in a project. This technique also reduces the amount of source code on each page, and reduces the clutter.
