SAP GUI for JAVA - services file

A colleague of mine has installed the SAP GUI for Java on his Apple MacBook Pro. When he clicks the logon icon, the logon pad does not have any systems in the list.

He also has Windows XP on his Apple, and he can logon OK that way...he does not have this problem.

Is there something special he has to do with the services file to be able to log on via the Java GUI in MAC OS?

    The Java GUI running on Mac OS X uses the files

    <User's home>/Library/Preferences/SAP/connections

    and <User's home>/Library/Preferences/SAP/settings

    to store configuration information, such as what SAP R/3

    systems are available and how to connect to them.

    These files could be copied from another Java Gui user

    or created as described in the "User Configuration" and

    "Administrator Configuration" sections of the online (HTML)

    manual that was installed when you installed the GUI.

    there seem to be no entries created to define which system could be used. Also SAP GUI for Java might miss the list of message servers to choose a system from for creating so called connection strings for the SAP Logon window.

    There are some threads with similar questions. Please have a look at

    Need SAPGUI configuration help

    and others.

    For a pictured explanation, you can have a look at this" target="_blank">">this presentation, page 20.

    Best regards
