How to take a GP process to next step using RFC call?

Hi,

I need to implement a GP project where RF device (some kind of hand held bar code reader) is involved in the process.

For RF device holders to pick up their worklist, they can log on to their UWL or Email, but to trigger the action and take the process to the next step is still outstanding.

Can anyone give me some advice on how to do this?

Customer said this RF device is able to make RFC calls, but how RFC call can trigger the GP?

any advice is welcome.

    Hi

    Surely RFC can not trigger a GP process, better you raise the OSS and explain scenario properly.

    Definately there will be some solution or suggesition from SAP

    Hi erv2,

    it is possible to write an RFC that starts a process, or that completes a process step.

    If you want to start a process via RFC you have to write a funcion IN ABAP that calls the Web Services that are automatically created for every process you model in the GP Design Time.

    Here you will find information on how to start a GP Process using Web Services

    Here you will find information on how to complete a GP Process Step using Web Services

    And here is a document that explains how to access Enterprise/Web Services from ABAP:

    Hope been helpfull,

    Regards,
