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.
