ABAP Proxy timeout ?

Dear All experts

I have succesfully implemented a call to a external webservice from ABAP (se80) by generating an ABAP proxy.


How do I setup a "timeout" on the ABAP proxy if the external webservice somehow is not responding ?

eg. I would like the timeout to be 30 seconds.

As it is right now it just "hangs"...

best regards

    You can set a timeout for the HTTP service using the connection timeout parameters for ICM.

    Set the timeout for ABAP Internet Communication Manager (ICM):

    icm/server_port_<xx> = PROT=HTTP,PORT=80<nn>,PROCTIMEOUT=3600 (recommended timeout in seconds)

    For more information, see SAP Note 824554.
