Semantic layer SDK: Invalid network layer ODBC

63 Views Last edit Nov 22, 2021 at 11:38 AM 3 rev

Hi All,

Problem description:

After migrating to SAP BO 4.3 from SAP BO 4.2 the issue with invalid network layer appears for using “” method of SAP BI Semantic Layer Java SDK API:


The issue appears just for loading ODBC type of connections:


the other types of connection work well with using this method.

Here is the stack trace of the issue:



  • JVM 32-bit has been used for loading connection information.
  • The following issue happens with using JVM 64-bit for all connection types:

An error occurred while getting the list of connection drivers {0}. (SLS 16002)

  • From experiments the issue does not appear when we replace 32-bit native libraries in SAP BO client 4.3 SP1 with previous version of 4.2 SP7 in the following folders:

"C:\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\dataAccess\connectionServer\drivers\lib32"

"C:\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\win32_x86"

So, it looks the problem is related with native code which is used in new version of Semantic Layer Java SDK API.


Do you have any ideas how we can resolve this issue in SAP BO 4.3 SP1 client?


Thanks, Ruslan
