    I am sorry it is totaly wrong what I have written.

    I need to know how can I call a webservice from SAP (within R/3).

    Until now I have created a webservice by the sap and now I need to call

    service by SAP R/3

    regards

    sas

      no problem. SAP with it's eccentric naming of things conveys misunderstandings like this.

      like so often this of course depends on the system version, the actual landscape as well as general requirements (e.g. management of webservices and webservice consumers in PI only) in place.

      I am therefore assuming you have something like NetWeaver 7.0 (which replaced the former thing called R/3) and ECC 6.00 of some certain up-to-date patch levels and you want to consume webservices without the use of PI (formerly known as XI).

      Since you have created webservices from FM already you should have noticed that in the wizard you had to choose what you wanted to create. You chose something like service provider and there are some other options, one to create a consumer proxy or whatever it is called at your actual patch level. supply it a WSDL of the service to consume and follow the directions. once it is created got to SOAMANAGER and configure it.

      You'll find a lot of documentation on this here on SDN as well as in saphelp.

    no matter what they try to tell you, a webservice can never operate as a client. period.

    the same is true the other way round.

    if you don't believe it, try to turn your webbrowser into a webserver.

    what you can do is to create an application which has a server component as well as a client component.

    which is basically the same as having two applications packed into one.

    my 2 cents,
