    Hi Chitra,

    To check whether ADS is installed on the system the following steps have to be considered.

    Configuration Check for PDF-Based Forms in ABAP

    Purpose

    Use this process to check whether all configuration steps for developing and processing forms in an ABAP environment are completely and to verify, which ones you still need to perform manually.

    Process Flow

    1. The first check you need to perform is Checking by Executing Test Report FP_TEST_00

    2. Check the ABAP Connection

    3. Check the User and Password

    4. Check the Destination Service

    Step 1.

    Procedure

    1. Log on to your SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP.

    2. Call transaction SA38 and enter the name FP_TEST_00.

    3. Choose Execute (F8). A dialog box is displayed.

    4. Enter FP_TEST_00 in the field Form.

    This is displayed as the default form name.

    ADS5. Enter the name of the connection to the ADS. Enter the default name , or, if you have specified another name, the one you are using in your system.

    6. In the dialog box, choose Output in Print Preview.

    7. Enter an appropriate device type in the field Output Device.

    8. Choose Print Preview.

    Result

    If the configuration is correct, a form containing several lines on two pages is displayed.

    If the configuration is not correct, no form is displayed. In that case, you need to perform further tests.

    Step2.

    Checking the ABAP Connection

    Use

    This is a test for checking the RFC destination. This test applies to both connections using Basic Authentication and SSL connections.

    Procedure

    1. Log on to your SAP system.

    2. Call transaction SA38.

    FP_PDF_TEST_OO. 3. Enter the name of the test report

    4. Enter the name of the connection. Enter the default name ADS, or, if you have specified another name, the one you are using in your system.

    5. Choose Execute (F8).

    Step 3.

    Checking the User and Password

    Use

    This is a test for checking whether the entries for the user, security role, and passwords are correct in a system that uses Basic Authentication.

    Procedure

    1. Enter the following URL in your Web browser: http://<server>:<port>/AdobeDocumentServices/Config<server> where is the name of the J2EE engine where the Adobe document services are installed, and <port> is the port of the J2EE engine.

    Note that the entries in the URL are case-sensitive.

    2. The Web page of the Web service AdobeDocumentServices is displayed. Choose Test.

    3. Choose rpdata(test.u2026).

    4. Choose the Send button without entering any parameters.

    5. Enter the user name and password provided in the previous configuration steps.

    6. Choose Submit.

    Step 4

    Checking the Destination Service and the ICF Service

    Use

    Use the first of the following tests for checking the settings of the destination service. If you receive any error messages, continue with the further tests listed below.

    Prerequisites

    You have already checked the ABAP connection [Page 7].

    1. Checking the Destination Service using a test report in AS ABAP

    Using this test you can check if the complete configuration of the destination service and the ICF service is correct. There are two test reports available:

    ● FP_CHECK_DESTINATION_SERVICE This report checks the configuration of the destination service and the ICF service sap/bc/fp.

    ● FP_CHECK_HTTP_DATA_TRANSFER This report checks the configuration of the destination service and the ICF service sap/bc/fpads. You only need this service, if AS ABAP and AS Java (with ADS) are installed in different systems, and you want to bundle your forms to improve performance.

    The ICF service sap/bc/fpads and the corresponding settings in the destination service are not configured during the initial installation of SAP NetWeaver 7.0. For more information, see Creating the Service User ADS_AGENT in the ABAP Environment [Page 12] and Activating the ICF service [Page 13].

    ...

    1. Log on to your SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP system.

    2. Call transaction SA38.

    3. Enter the name of the test report.

    4. Execute the test without choosing the option With Destination Service.

    5. The system renders a test form in the background without using the destination service and displays the size of the created PDF.

    6. Execute the test again. Now select the option With Destination Service.

    7. If the settings of the destination service are correct, the system displays the same message as before (see step 5).

    2. Checking the ICF Service using the Web Browser

    ...

    1. In your Web browser enter the URL

    http://<server>:<port>/sap/bc/fp/form/layout/fp_test_00.xdp

    where <server> is the server that hosts the AS ABAP and <port> is the http port of the AS ABAP.

    2. In the dialog box enter ADS_AGENT as user and the password you have specified for it.

    Regards

    Hi Chitra,

    You need to install Adobe Lifecycle Designer7.1 for it.

    Regards
