    Hi,

    <b>Each application server contains a dispatcher

    .

    The dispatcher is the link between the work processes and the users logged onto the application server.

    Its task is to receive requests for dialog steps from the SAPgui and direct them to a free work process.

    In the same way, it directs screen output resulting from the dialog step back to the appropriate user.</b>

    regards,

    Purpose

    The SAP Web dispatcher lies between the Internet and your SAP System. It is the entry point for HTTP(s) requests into your system, which consists of one or more Web application servers. As a "software web switch", the SAP Web dispatcher can reject or accept connections. When it accepts a connection, it balances the load to ensure an even distribution across the servers.

    You can use the SAP Web dispatcher in ABAP/Java systems and in pure Java systems, as well as in pure ABAP systems.

    It is also beneficial to use the SAP Web dispatcher, if you do not need security functions (entry point in the DMZ, SSL, URL filtering), but you simply want to balance the load between several SAP Web AS instances.

    Introductory Comments

    The SAP Web dispatcher is recommended when you use an SAP system with several SAP Web Application Servers for Web applications.

    The SAP Web dispatcher is a program that you can run on the machine that is connected directly to the Internet. It requires minimal configuration - you just have to enter the following data in the profile file:

    · Port, on which the HTTP(s) requests are to be received (parameter icm/server_port_
