Do we need a J2EE server to call a Web Service?

Hi Guys,

We are running on 640 ABAP core. I am trying to expose a BAPI as a Web Service. This Web Service is going to be invoked by a external web server.

Do we need to have J2EE installed on the Web AS for the successful execution of the Web Service?

Currently I have created a Web Service using the Web Service Wizard, but having some user authorization issues in calling the web service.

Regards

Sujan

    certainly you dont need J2EE for either exposing a RFC/BAPI as webservice or for consuming external websevices from ABAP system.

    <i>Currently I have created a Web Service using the Web Service Wizard, but having some user authorization issues in calling the web service.</i>

    from where/how you are calling the webservice? WAS ABAP can handle both header authentication and certificate based authentication. if you explain a bit further on this error we may be able to help.

    Hi Sujan,

    To my knowledge you don't need to have J2EE to test/execute your published Web Services. As for your auth.errors you may need to check the user defined in the logon settings of the ICF node created for your service (SICF=>...SOAP..-><your Web Service>)
