Hi Stefan,

I think that is is not necessary to have EasyDMS involved here. You can maybe use BAPI_DOCUMENT_CHECKOUTVIEW being called to have this working. Maybe the information at could be useful for this project.

Hoi Christoph,

finally I've got the chance to go through your post.

In the wiki page your are referring to it is mentioned that BAPIs always require a SAPGUI or an open RFC connection, so you shall prefer API function modules instead.

I haven't got the chance yet to get a copy of the referenced SAP note 504692 but you may can answer me the following question:

  1. is easyDMS also an RFC connection
  2. can any JAVA application/script run the code
  3. what is the interface to reach the SAP Server
  4. What is the easiest way to figure out what (headless) interfaces are available on my client machine (as I won't be able to see the SAP admin before the end of next week)
  5. All what I want to achieve is to check out some documents out of an Office application modify it and check it in again.
    A welcome extra would be to:
    - modify the Document Info Record
    - add a change number
    - add connections to other records (document, material, etc.)
