Strange port in url after deploy of WebDynpro project

Hi all

I try to deploy a simple WebDynpro application from the SAP NetWeaver Developer Studio. Unfortunately it looks like the application never gets deployed on the Java AS. There are two points during the deploy process (right click on the application in the Developer Studio and then "Deploy new archive and run"). First I never had to enter a username and password for the connection to the j2ee server. Is that normal? And also, Eclipse tries to open a web browser which fails on my system. It complains something about missing file handling, and so on. However this is not importent but the strange thing is the title of the popup. There it is stated that the url http://HOSTNAME:-1/webdnypro/dispatcher/local/APP/APP?SAPtestId=1 could not be opened through a missing file handling entry. Why does SAP build an url with a port number of -1 ? That will never work.

Thanks in advance for your help,

Thierry Rietsch

    Hi,

    Can you check whether all the WD services are running properly on the server? Are all WD components from SAP like tc~dispwda (I don't remember the exact component name) are available & started? You can do this through the WD Console or WD Content Administrator on the portal.

    Regards,

    Satyajit.

      Hi

      Well I see a lot of tc~wd* entries and all of them are up and running. Where do I get a list of the required components? Isn't there a log or something in which the SAP NetWeaver Developer Studio writes errors during the deployment process?

      Kind regards,

    Hi,

    Check Message server host & port number in Windows -> Preferences -> SAP J2EE Engine.

    Also, is sever up & running? check the status of J2EE engine from NWDS.

    Regards,

      Hi Nikhil

      Thanks for your answer. Unfortunately the problem still exists. I've stopped the sdm server and started it from a command line with the integrated parameter. The output was:

      <code>Starting SDM - Software Deployment Manager...

      tc/SL/SDM/SDM/sap.com/SAP AG/7.0014.20071029094708.0000

      Initializing Network Manager (50017)

      Checking if another SDM is running on port 50018

      Operationmode for JStartupFramework has already been set to "integrated".

      Successfully executed. Return code: 0</code>

      After that I tried to deploy the WebDynpro application again, but it still doesn't work.

    please try starting SDM in integrated mode

    go to j2ee path \SDM\program

    stopserver

    sdm jstartup "mode=integrated"

    are you able to ping J2E server?

    make sure that host entry is there in %WINDIR%/system32/drivers/etc/hosts file.

      Yes I am able to ping the server. I can open the portal page, I can access the webdnypro console on that server and I see it in the SAP NetWeaver Developer Studio. When I enter the url with the correct port number I get a 404 error report. So the question is why SAP generates a port number -1 and what does this indicate? (e.g. wrong deployment of webdynpro application and so on).

      Thanks for your help!

    Only deploy to NWDS. I tried to deploy to the netweaver ep server, but of course this will not work 😊
