  3. Best in town for WDA

    Posted by Soma on Dec 18th, 2013

    This is the best book to learn Web Dynpro ABAP. This book covers all aspects of the WDA from grounds up! If you are totally new to WDA just buy this book and start practicing the examples authors mentioned. This book even covers FPM (in brief, even though because FPM itself requires separate book!). This is really one of the best book from SAP Press till date.
    Go for it!! Get your hands dirty on WDA!!!
