Install Java Engine

I've been searching through SCN and various notes and I can't seem to find an answer to my quest for a Java engine.  I am running an instance of ERP 6.0 EHP6 and I need a Java engine to run Adobe Document Services.  When I run the SAPINST.EXE, which option do I select to create the Java instance?  The NetWeaver node?  Thanks in advance.

    I would recommend installing SAP NetWeaver Application Server AS Java 7.3.  Below is the standard system path from SAPInst or SWPM.

         SAP NetWeaver 7.3 > SAP Systems > Application Server Java > Standard System

    Adobe Document Services is a component within all Application Server Java systems.  So, once you install a Java Stack, you should be able to configure ADS.

      Thanks Ravi, my error was that I was trying to install it from the sapinst.exe that comes with ERP, where there is no option for Application Server Java.  Instead I had to download the Software Provisioning Manager and the java exports for NW 7.30.

    You need to install the Java SDK before you can install Adobe Document Services.  Download the latest SDK from the below link.

    Once you have it installed you are going to have to set a couple of system environment variables.

    1. Go to your system properties in Windows and click on Environment Variables
    2. Create a new system variable named JAVA_HOME pointing to the JRE folder in the newly installed Java SDK path.

    You should be all set.  Let me know if you have further issues.
