java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError in Upgrading Business Connector from 4.7 to 4.8

Hi All,

I hope this is the right place to put this query.

We are upgrading SAP Businness Connector from 4.7 version to 4.8. There are few challenges which we are facing while doing this migration.

We are making a RFC call from our Business Connector JAVA Service

(callRFC)and we are using built in "invoke" Class

( We are getting an error:

java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: bcutility/Log at


... 21 more

I checked in the Migration guide and this error is mentioned there but


such there is no solution provided.

All it says is: "Java Services that use non-public classes of the

Business Connector that have been deleted in BC 4.8 will fail with

NoSuchMethodError or NoClassDefFoundError.


Any help would be much appreciated.
