As of GuiXT version 2011 Q1
1 you can store GuiXT scripts, images (gif, jpg) and InputScripts in the "SAP MIME Repository",
SAP transaction SE80. Compared with the older
SAP Web Repository
this has the following advantages:
- The MIME Repository
supports the versioning of all files
- The files are stored
in hierarchically organized folders
- The maintenance
transaction SE80 offers greater comfort than SMW0 (Web Repository).
It is used by SAP for Web Dynpro and BSP applications.
- There is a tool (ABAP program
BSP_UPDATE_MIMEREPOS) for mass import and export from/to local
- The file access can be
done via http or WebDAV, in addition to the RFC (Remote Function
Call) based access that is used by GuiXT.
- There is no need to "release"
a function module for file access as is required in the Web
There are also some
- The first access for
each file is slower, since 3 RFCs are needed instead of one. We
suggest you make use of the
VersionNumber statement so that the
slower first access is irrelevant for productive usage.
- The user interface of
the MIME repository is more complex
Using the notation
SAPMR: in the same way as SAPWR: you can specify files and
folders in the SAP Mime Repository in GuiXT scripts and GuiXT profile.
