SAP R3 4.7 to SAP PI 7.31 connectivity

Hi Experts,

we have a SAP R3 4.7 ( WAS 620) system which has never been connected to any PI system.

We have SAP PI 7.31 EPH 5 system ( Dual Stack)

We have interfaces running from SAP ECC 6.0 with SAP PI 7.3 .

Can anyone let me know if i can connect R3 with  just java stack of PI or it will support only ABAP stack?

Also can you please send me the list of steps for proxy connectivity?

Regards

Biplab

    Hi Biplab

    I can confirm that proxy is possible from Web AS 6.20 onwards. I was involved in a project long time back integrating an R/3 4.7 system with XI 3.0 and we were using proxies.

    Both Inaki's link above and the one below also mentions Web AS 6.20 as a minimum prerequisite.

    Proxies in SAP - Netweaver Technology - SCN Wiki

    As this was so long ago, I can't remember if the R/3 system had the XI2.0 add-on installed on it in order to generate the proxies. I'd suggest you try generating a proxy, and if it does not work, then get the add on installed.

    One thing I do remember is for inbound proxies (XI -> R/3), the path for the target URL is slightly different and needs to be as listed below. The type needs to be "receiver" instead of "entry" which is what is commonly used now from Web AS 6.40 and above.

    http://server:abapport/sap/xi/engine?type=receiver

    As for connectivity using SOAP on Java stack only (ICO), I am unsure of this as this was long before Java only processing was available. An R/3 4.7 system does not seem to meet the prerequisites mentioned in the document Hareesh provided above. I guess there is no harm trying it out. I am sure that connectivity is supported on ABAP stack via the XI adapter, so you can always fall back on a classical scenario if ICO does not work.

    Well, as the saying goes "you'll never know if you never try" 😊

    You can use soap adapter to enable proxy communication which will bypass ABAP stack(integration engine). Instead of creating a classical scenario, you should create Integrated Configurations.

    Refer to below blog for setup.
