Search connector for category EAM_TECHOBJ is not active

Good Day

I'm involved in setting up NWBC for assessing usability of WebDynpro transactions for EAM ("Simplicity"). We have enabled the NetWeaver service for HTML and we've set up a test user with certain pfcg roles.

When using some of those components related to search, we are coming up against errors e.g. "Search connector for category EAM_TECHOBJ is not active".

My question is: is TREX mandatory for searches in NetWeaver Business Client or are there alternatives? Is TREX in fact synonymous with Embedded Search?

May search connectors be created/activated without running TREX? If yes, please provide a step by step guide on how to.

 

I would appreciate a very basic guidance, as at this point I'm trying to understand the relationship Embedded Search & NWBC.

As of now I'd mostly like to know if setting up TREX indispensable.

Regards

Thulani

       Answer to most of your question could be found in the link below:

      In general, TREX is NOT mandatory. NWBC support open search and it comes with its own standard search (see link above).

       TREX, Embedded Search and Enterprise Search is actually referring to the same basic technology i.e. SAP Search Engine. The differences, in general, are in scope of use,  ease of use, and in licensing. Just as the BW is nowadays available in all of Netweaver Based Business Suite  so is the Search Engine.    Embedded Search in particular, is basically the Search Engine embedded within the Netweaver Stack, which is used as the basic layer in  all SAP Business Suite (ERP, SCM, CRM etc).

    Dear Thulani,

    I think it worth to ask the colleagues in the EAM community as well:
