MDM Connector problem


We have upgraded the MDM Server from MDM 5.5 SP3 to SP4 and have deployed all the SCA files for Portal Content as well as for MDM Java Connector.

now, I have got a Web Dynpro application which was running perfectly in SP3 but now is not able to connect to MDM Server through MDM Java Connector.

I'm getting an error saying "com.sapportals.connector.connection.ConnectionFailedException: Connection Failed: failed to connect server xx.xx.xx.xx due to:com/sap/mdm/internal/commands/AbstractCommand "

Does anyone know what could be the possible reason for this.



PS:- The JAR files I'm using right now are all at SP4.

    I've heard that besides recompiling, the applications must be revised, especially if you use commands, since the Packages structures have been modified.

    Do you have access to RKT presentations regarding differences between Java APIs? (SP03 -> SP04) if you do, you can review it and check if you missed something...

    I don't know if I am capable of distributing such presentation tough...

    Hi Mausam,

    as I am aware, the MDM 5.5 SP4 patch1 is already available for download from SAP Marketplace for all customers who previously downloaded SP4 (no patch - or patch0). Please open the SP4 patch1 installation bundle, and close to the sca files must be a Readme.txt file too - it contains detailed info related to the new packaging of the files, and the deployment of MDM 5.5 SP4 patch1 components in SAP NW J2EE/Portal environment.

    If you do not have this information, then in nutshell: using SDM remove all mdm components visible in Undeploy view (* and*), then Deploy the sca files from the installation bundle you got, then restart ⚠️ J2EE/Portal.

    Additional hints:

    a). the portal config guide in SP4 is named "MDM Enterprise Portal Content" - available too at SAP Marketplace ;

    b). check the config information in the document above (e.g. version of sca files must match the version of MDM Server);

    c). if there is already SP3 portal content, then SAP Note 969310 describes how to upgrade it to SP4.

    I hope this will help in your work.
