    first, you better use a final and officially supported Java Runtime.

    System requirements can be found in note 2059424.

    Regarding the problems with typing, do you use any and if yes which input methods?

    Regarding limitations of SAP GUI for Java, please refer to note 454939 and transaction classification in se93.

    Best regards

    • Hello Kishore.

      Putting a check mark alone will not make the transaction compatible.

      Is this your own code or SAP's code you are referring to?

      If an SAP native transaction code does not have SAPgui for Java checked, then this indicates the transaction is NOT compatible with JavaGUI and in those cases, you should use

      SAPgui for Windows only.
