BI Java SDK: deployment to J2EE Server


Hi all,

I've just got a simple problem. I'm running a Java servlet on the SAP J2EE Engine, which uses the BI Java SDK to connect to a BW system. This works fine if I include all jar files from the SDK in the project classpath via the "add external jar" button.

However, doing so results in a really big ear file (because all the jar files are included in it) which takes some time to deploy therefore.

I tried to follow the guide How_To_BI_Java_SDK_J2EE_App.pdf, telling me that "the BI Java SDK libraries are required to compile this scenario". My question is now, how do I correctly add/reference these jar files so that they won't be included in the ear file which I have to deploy every time I'm changing the source code?

Thank you very much for your help.

Best regards
