How to handle middleware short dumps


This is to seek your expert advice with respect to an issue we are facing.

Business Scenario/Technical details:

As part of our project we developed inbound interfaces into SAP from a third party tool for Journal Voucher(financial document) posting.

This interface call is made via SAP PO as web service and makes journal voucher posting by calling BAPI ACCOUNT DOC POST.


During the posting, if some incorrect values entered in third party screen, or exceeded length value is entered, process is terminated between SAP PO and ECC and a generic error message ‘Server Error’ is thrown to third party tool instead of ‘Incorrect value for XYZ field’ etc.

This is annoying to business users to get to know the actual reason only after they reach out to Project(SAP) team.

Pls note the short dump is happening in the Transformation Code that is generated when PI creates a schema.

Is there a way to handle this kind of exception in middleware or in ECC?

Thanks in advance.
