Performance Note

Dynamic documents use the SAP HTML Viewer control. SAP does not have its own web browser, but provides a global ABAP class that provides access to the functions exposed by the underlying browser. Consequently, when you load a dynamic document, the SAP HTML Viewer control is also instantitated, and this starts a browser instance on your frontend. The consequence of this for dynamic documents is that the performance overhead associated with starting these processes may not be justified for very small documents (consisting of maybe just one or two items).
