There are four steps required to build form processes using FLM:
- Logical Form Design: Data Schema design and configuration
- Physical Form Design: Form Template design and development
- Add Business Logic: ABAP business logic design and development
- Posting Adapter: ABAP posting design and development
Data Schema design and configuration.
The data schema is the logical definition of the interface fields that pass data between FLM and the form. This is configured in the FLM Form Wizard.
Form Template design and development
The form template is built using either:
The form template is uploaded to FLM using FLM>Interactive Forms>Setup Forms>Manage Form Resources
Business Logic design and development
The form routing logic is configured in FLM through the SAP Implementation Guide and business logic for rules such as data pre-population, data validation and new owner determination is added through ABAP user-exits.
Posting Adapter design and development
The posting logic is configured in FLM through the SAP Implementation Guide and the posting adapter functions (which map form fields to SAP-delivered BAPIs) are developed in ABAP.
