RFC Scenario using BPM -- Starter Kit

Greetings,

I've been trying to implement the blog listed in my subject.

At the bottom is a link to the blog.

My question is as follows.

I have sucessfully completed the implementation except for one small problem... the file returning from my RFC call is empty and I know I'm calling it with a valid company id. I see no errors/dumps in the remote R/3 system.

What possible causes are there for empty files returning from RFC call... with no errors showing in the monitor?

Here's the link to the blog

    Krishna,

    I only see 2

    The request from the sender to the BPM & the response from the BPM back to the sender.

    hI,

    Possibilities are -

    1) No Response from RFC -- if so

    check the message monitoring ? Are you getting any response from RFC ...

    You can check thie with BPM workflow monitor..

    Go to SXMB_MONI->PE -->technical details and check the RFC response.

    2) Check out the RWB> Message Monitoring->Message Display tool>Audit Log for the File Receiver...

    3) check the Adapter monitor--> Are you doing File content conversion ? if so there may be some error... you can get this info from Message Monitoring/Communication channel monitoring in the RWB

    Regards,

    moorthy

      Krishna,

      1) I don't have any response in SXMB_MONI_PE for my RFC & RFC destination.

      2) I don't see any error in the RWB in the audit log

      3) I don't see any errors for the file adapter for sender or receiver

    Krishna,

    Yes... I'm getting a response.

    It's writing an empty, properly formatted return file.

    and the RWB looks good all the way through.

    It's like I'm missing a step on the way back from the RFC call.

    When doing an RFC call, do I have to do an interface mapping on the way back into XI?

      HI,

      RFC repsonse should be mapped to send the file message. As I mentioned check out in the message monitoring and look for any message.

      btw , given blog has RFC response mapping to send the response to a file..

      Just cross verify.

      Regards,

    YOU HAVE TO DO RESPONSE MAPPING if u want to get a response.

    Hi Doug,

    A response mapping is mandatory if you need to get the response from the RFC.:)

    cheers,

    Krishna,

    I'm getting a message back and I'm creating the response file, but the fields in it are empty.

    It's like it's not waiting for a response from the RFC... but going right into the rest of the response process.

    How do I make this thing wait for a response from the RFC?
