    Hi,

    RFC command line interface

    Syntax :

    startrfc [connect options] <function options>

    with

    function options =

    -F <function module

    -E ><parameter>=<value>

    -T <table name>,<width>,[r=<file>][,w=<file>]

    where <file> is a path name to read from (r)

    or write to (w) the internal table.

    If <file> is -, stdin or stdout is used.

    RFC connection options:

    -d <destination> name of the RFC destination.

    Necessary, if you are using a 'sideinfo' file.

    -2 SNA mode on.

    You must set this if you want to connect to R/2.

    All other conection data must be suppplied by a

    sideinfo file.

    -3 R/3 mode on.

    You must set this if you want to connect to R/3.

    Specify the following options:

    -h <hostname> hostname of the R/3 target system.

    -s <system number> system number of the target system.

    this determines the TCP/IP service to be used to connect

    to the R/3 system. The default value is 0 and the default

    service being used then is sapgw00.

    -gui start sapgui

    to allow dynpro and graphics processing

    (3.0C or later required on the target system).

    Using an intermediate SAP gateway, specify:

    -g <gateway host>

    -x <gateway service>

    (must not be used with -gui or -debug option).

    -balanced load balancing mode.

    Another way to connect to R/3, if the R/3 system is 3.0C

    or later and workload balancing is active on that system.

    Requests are automatically routed to the application server

    having the best response times in the moment.

    Specify the following options:

    -h <host name> hostname of R/3's message server.

    -s <system name> name of the target system.

    This determines the TCP/IP service to be used to connect

    to the R/3 system.

    The system name is a 3 letter word. If the system name

    is XXX, the service being used is sapXXX.

    -g <group name> name of application server group.

    The default is PUBLIC.

    -gui start sapgui

    to allow dynpro and graphics processing.

    additional options:

    -t turn trace on.

    all operations are written to the trace file 'dev_rfc'

    -debug turn ABAP/4 debugging mode on.

    this can only be done, if sapgui is installed on the client

    system and the target system has version 3.0C or later.

    Using the 'saprfc.ini'-file:

    -D <destination> name of the RFC destination in saprfc.ini

    Instead of using the connection and additional options

    defined above, you can also work with the 'saprfc.ini'-file

    and all needed options must be defined in this file.

    Using this feature, this program can run in an SNC

    environment.

    RFC logon data:

    -u <userid> SAP userid.

    -p <password> password.

    -c <client> client.

    -l <language> logon language.

    further options:

    -i <input file for argv>

    -o <output file for argv>

    -? this text

    Reward points if helpful,

    Regards,

    The<b> startrfc</b> utility can be used to invoke ABAP programs from external systems or servers.

      Can it be used to test logon R3 in double stack(java+abap)?

      just like this :

      startrfc -3 -h localhost -s n4s -u SAPJSF -p pass -c 001
