    Hi Amit,

    404 is an HTTP response code that indicates that the resource in question couldn't be found. Usually this is due to an incorrect URL, so I would recommend double checking all URLs involved first.

    If all of those are correct, the next part that you need to zero in on is: 'Not Found XML element Envelope missing in SOAP message header (SAP XI Extension)'

    I'm not positive, but it seems like the SOAP message that you're sending doesn't have an envelope. The SOAPEnvelope is a container for both the SOAPBody (i.e. the payload) and the SOAPHeaders that can be viewed as processing instructions for the receiving system. I don't know why it wouldn't be there, but you could start following up on this by sending a message to a port dumper and looking at the structure to see if there is in fact an envelope.

      I was able to solve this problem

      The solution was relate to URL http URL was not working so we used the other method explained below.

      I dont understand why HTTP was not working.


      URL in String Display

      URL for calling the Integration Server.


      There are two ways of specifying a URL:


      <host is the host name of the Integration Server and port is the HTTP port.

      If you have already maintained this entry in your system landscape description, you can copy the entry as follows: Choose Edit -> Change Global Configuration Data to switch to change mode. Then select System Landscape - Load Configuration.

      You must define the username, password, language, and client in the ICF service in the target system.

      The ICF service is called /sap/xi/engine.

      The user name is the name of the person who processes the XML messages on the Integration Server.


      <IntegrationServer-Destination> is the RFC destination (SM59) of type HTTP connection (type H) to the Integration Server. In this case, host name, port, and path prefix are saved in the RFC destination.

      First create a type H SM59 destination with the host name and the HTTP port of the Integration Server. Enter the following path prefix: /sap/xi/engine/?type=entry.

      In this case, the name of the user and the password are saved in the SM59 destination in the current system; you do not need to specify them in the SICF service in the target system.

      You must place the prefix dest:// before the name of the SM59 destination so that the system knows that this is not a direct specification of the URL, but a logical definition in this case.

      Thank you Steve for the help. May be intially i was not able to understand what you meant.
