The BEX WEB is a desktop application for creating Web Applications with BW-Specific contents. Using BEX Web, we can create a HTML Page that contains contents such as various tables, charts or Maps. This HTML page(known as web application) provides the basis for not only web application with complex interaction but also for web cockpits and views.
