.Net Connector: No connection for SAP under "Server Explorer"?

I have Microsoft Visual Studio 2003, Java Runtime Environment 1.4, and SAP .Net Connector 2.0 installed in a WinXP machine and was able to add a proxy class to connect to SAP, however I can not find the data connection for SAP under "Server Explorer". What could be wrong? Or did I miss any step?

    Hi Maheswaran,

    I have read that before, and I think I had all the required software installed, except that I only have Visual Basic.Net 2003, not a full version of Visual Studio. Actually today I tried the installation on a new machine but the result is the same.

    I will try to get a full evaluation version of VS.Net to test with, but may need to wait for a week or so before I can get it.

    Thanks,

    Sunny

    Hello Maheswaran B.,

    Thanks for your prompt reply. However, in my machine, under Server Explorer, there are only 3 icons available: Refresh, Stop Refresh, and Connect to Database. Under it is the blank group "Data Connections". - There is no Application server or Portals. Maybe this has anything to do with my VS.Net 2003 installation? I am an ABAP programmer and am pretty new to VS.Net.

    Thanks again.

    Sunny

      Hi Sunny,

      1. Have you installed PDK for .NET in the Development Machine?

      2. Have your installed PDK for .NET Runtime in the Portal Server?

      Hope it helps.

      Regards,

      Maheswaran.B

    Hi Sunny lau,

    Welcome to SDN Forums.

    Are you trying to do some tutorials from the sdn?

    1. In Server Explorer you have Application Server and Portals.

    2. Right Click on the Portals and you can see the Add Portal... option.

    3. Click to add the portal and give the nessary details.

    4. Right Click the Destination Folder inside the portal and choose Add destination.

    5. If you have created system and sytem alias in the portal server, it will list you the system alias names.

    6. Choose your target system alias name by checking the check box. Click ok after selecting your system alias.

    7. Now you will have all the system aliases names that you have selected within the destination folder of the portal.

    8. Now your system alias are the PortalDestination Component for your portal components.

    9. Drag and drop the system alias in any of your portal component to add the connection.

    hope it solves your problem.

    Regards,

    Maheswaran.B

    Hi Maheswaran B.,

    No I did not install PDK for .NET in the Development machine.. Is it required to do so? I did not see any document mentions it.

    For "Portal Server"? Do you mean SAP Portal? We don't have it currently.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Sunny

      Hi Ofer,

      I thought he is going through the SDN Tutorials...

      I have asked that in my first reply.

      But he has not denied what i asked!

      So i am on the assumption that he is working with tutorials...

      In the tutorial... you can see that they had given to create a portal components...(For this you need portal add in...)

      (I donot know about the other tutorials that are not related to portal components that is involving sap proxy)

      If you found any tutorial please provide those links... in this thread.

      Regards,

      Maheswaran.B

    Hi Sunny,

    Did you try clicking the refresh button at the top of the server explorer? it usually helps for a fresh installation...

    Regards,

    Ofer

    Sorry guys, I am not going through the SDN Tutorials as I don't have SAP portal. I just installed VS.Net 2003, JDE 1.4 and SAP .Net 2.0 according to the user guide. Clicking on the refresh button (and reboot the machine) does not help.

    I would repeat the installation on another machine tomorrow if the above is all I need to do.

    Regards,

    Sunny

    In Server Explorer there is only a blank group "Data Connections".

    If VS.Net professional is required, then I believe this is the answer to my question. So I just need to wait for the evaluation copy to confirm that.

    Thanks for your kind help, I do appreciate that.

    Regards,

    Sunny Lau
