I have recently setup the Netweaver Developer studio on my system.
To test the setup, I created a simple Web Dynpro Application and tried to deploy it on the Application server. I right clicked on the Web Dynpro App and selected "Deploy New Archive and Run".
On doing so, I got the following error in the pop-up -> "An internal error occurred during: "Deploying project(s) 'Test1'". java.lang.NullPointerException
Also I got the following messages on the Deploy View of the Netweaver Developer studio (they are in reverse chronological order) :
Looking for Deploy Controller deploy mechanism...
SDM port not defined or not found
Found SDM host: usdcadocb
Checking for SDM host...
I have also verified that the java application server is running properly and I could see the server process and the SDM process in the Application servers process List.
It would be great if anybody can provide some help on this issue.
