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.
