SAP Enterprise Service Explorer

To me it seems that the SAP ES Explorer is the current textbook tool to connect .net in Visual Studio 2008 with SAP backend.

Can I use the tool only with an ESR on SAP side established, or also having just one WebAS ABAP. Since I have to configure the ESR I have not found a way to use it just with a plain WebAS ABAP.

    Hi Hork,

    for using the ES Explorer you need the ESR. Nevertheless you can also consume the Web Services from WebAS directly in Visual Studio 2008, we published a paper where we describe how to do this on http://download.microsoft.com/download/a/2/8/a287c141-b72e-4e9e-aac5-826e3f0d6d76/StatefulNetWeaverCommunication.pdf where we describe how to do it with Visual Studio 2005, the same approach works in Visual Studio 2008.

    Regards,

    Juergen

      Jurgen,

      Your whitepaper does not apply or work in newer versions of SAP ECC. WSADIN, for example, is an obsolete t-code in recent releases.

      Do you have an updated version of your whitepaper using the new SOAMANAGER t-code? Can you provide an example using VB 2005 / 2008 as the web services consumer (instead of C#) also?

    Yes very much, I do also have problems in the new versions 7.0 SPS 14 ("SOAMANGER" versions) and later failing with SOAP errors.

    The issue has been solved. The problem was that prior SPS14 it was possible to call the WSDL URL, while SPS 14>= required to directly call the endpoint.

    Doing so serves the issue
