It’s here!

I have a copy of “Universal Worklist with SAP NetWeaver Portal” in my hands, straight from the printers. Though I say so myself, it’s looking good – in fact I’ve used for reference several times already. My only regret is that during copy editing the text has been translated from UK English to American English.

Turning “-ise” into “-ize” I can live with – but I wasn’t prepared for the effects of the Chicago Manual of Style used as the basis for the publisher’s house style. A few things I was taught about English in school are flatly contradicted by the CMS – things like the Oxford serial comma being de rigeur – but I’m happy with the result.

Right now I’m working on the website for the book, so in a few weeks’ time you’ll be able to download the source code for all the examples and get direct browser links for all the references to SAP documentation. I’m hoping to be able to do this in Wiki format so that readers can add to the content and make it (in conjunction with the book) the best UWL guide available.

    Is the website for the book still working? Can’t seem to connect with it. Thanks.

    Hi,

    The best web resource for the book is over at the SAP Community Network:
    http://wiki.sdn.sap.com/wiki/display/BPX/Universal+Worklist+with+SAP+NetWeaver+Portal

    All of the code samples, etc. are available there.

    Best regards,
    Darren

    Hello Darren,

    I have searched the whole internet for your book, but it’s not available anywhere to buy it anymore…not on SAP Press, Amazon or any other website. I would really like to get a copy of the book and if it’s not printed anymore, could I buy it from you?

    Thank you!
    Iuliana

      Hi Luliana,

      Unfortunately I only have my author’s copy left, and I don’t really want to sell that :-)

      The book was written a long time ago now (over 5 years) and so it’s not really up to date any more – you might be better off buying one of the more recent SAP Workflow books from SAP Press – they will cover the same sort of material but will cover more recent versions of SAP NetWeaver.

      Best regards,
      Darren
