Do Post goods issue & reverse delivery via ABAP Web services

Hi Experts,

Apologies if I am not posting on appropriate area & please direct me.

I have created an ABAP Webservice (RFC Enabled FM) which does the post goods issue & reverse deliveries.

1. To do PGI I have used Standard FM ( WS_DELIVERY_UPDATE) inside my custom FM

2. To do reverse I have written a small BDC in that custom FM with Call transaction 'VL09' using BDC .....


This RFC enabled FM is working fine both the functionality .


Issue : when testing web service via SOAP UI (software only option 1 is working and when I execute with option 2 it is throwing some error but I am unable to understand this error.


Can anyone have a look into it to guide me towards the possible cause of this error.


File attached.

    From the picture, it is showing time out error. That can be either there is not response from server OR your RFC is taking too long to execute.

    Just to help in troubleshoot,

    Put an HTTP break point in your second RFC (just at the start before any BDC calls) and then call the web service from SoapUI. This should activate the ABAP debugger in you SAPGUI. Now if this happens, you can conclude that the network between soapui and SAP application server is fine and something is wrong in RFC ABAP code.

    If the debugger is not activated when you call web service from soapui, this mean the problem is even before your RFC code is triggered (some system setting or may be Web serivce is not active or something like that).

    • Hi Javed ,

      Yes it looks BDC is failing when is executed via SOAP UI. I am implementing FM -WS_REVERSE_GOODS_ISSUE to do reverse which is a lot more easier & faster to the requirement .

      I have raised issue with basis team for the same , as we are facing this issue for first time due to limited Web servies in he system.

      thank you for all help and advice.
