I recently installed the latest Sneak Preview Java WAS 6.40 + EP6.0 (SP16). I created 'normal' R3 systems according to the help.sap.com docu and the postings I found in this forum and as far as the connection tests are reliable this worked.
Now I'd like to create a system object in the portal representing the underlying J2EE WAS itself. In the creation wizard I tried several templates among them 'SAP system using dedicated application server' (which made most sense to me).
However the WAS connection test (after creation) keeps failing - all steps except the 'connectivity to the defined back-end application'-check are ok.
The properties I used are
WAS host name: localhost:50000
WAS path: /webdynpro/dispatcher/
WAS protocol: http
The system type is SAP_R3 (one can only choose between SAP_R3, SAP_BW and SAP_CRM ?!).
I can't find anything specific on J2EE system creation in the docu, can anyone advise?
