I read the document "Using Adobe Document Services with SAP on IBM DB2 for i5/OS".
Summary of the document -
There are two possible technical scenarios:
1. ADS in the Java stack of a Dialog instance on Windows
1.1. ABAP+Java dialog instance on Windows
1.2. Java dialog instance on Windows
2. ADS in a SAP system on a supported platform
2.1. ABAP+Java central instance on Windows/Unix
2.2. Java central instance on Windows/Unix
The document recomammeds technical scenario 1, that is, install a Windows Dialog instance.
Choosing an ABAP+Java or Java system depends on the usage scenario for Interactive Forms:
- Interactive PDF use: Java mandatory, ABAP+Java possible
- Interactive use in SAP Maanger Self_Services/batching of forms:
ABAP+Java mandatory but Note 993612 describes the status for NW04s SP12 onwards.
End of summary -
Our prefered rechnical scenario is: "1.2. Java dialog instance on Windows" to minimice resources.
Our usage scenario for Interactive Forms includes "SAP Manager Self- Services".
Our interpretation of note 993612 is that we do not need double stack installation. Could you confirnm this ?.
If yes, we are going to install a Java Dialog instance on Windows connected to our Java Central instance on iSeries (our SAP Portal system) to use ADS.
