Do we have a java stack on BI?

Hi all,

We want to install Information Broadcasting on our BI 7.0 system, however one of the prerequsites is to have a JAVA stack, however i'm not 100% sure if we have one, as we never needed to any sole JAVA functionality of BI.

I've looked under the MMC, couldn't find any J2EE tables, looked into the folder structure, didn't find any any real J2EE folder under the run folder. However we running a search i did find few "j2ee" related items, such as a j2eechk.txt, would that mean we have a j2ee stack? Is there a definite way to find out?

Thanks much and happy weekend!

    sounds like you don't. check for /usr/sap/<SID>/<instance>/j2ee. if it's there, you probably do, if not, you probably don't.

      Hi Sameer,

      If your BI system is having only ABAP stack, So there is nothing to worry.

      All you have to done is to check that is BI JAVA is installed on your EP server or not.

      To check that BI JAVA is installed or not, please look for the components in system information (Mainly BIWEBAPP and BI-BASE-S).

      Please note that for BI Broadcasting, your BI JAVA and ABAP BI should also be on having specific SPS (Please check SAPNOTE "SAP Note 1013369 - SAP NetWeaver 7.0 BI - intermediate Support Packages"

      With Regards,

    Inorder to find out whether you have a J2EE Engine or not, you can login to your ABAP Engine and go to the transaction SMICM.

    SMICM >> GoTo >> HTTP Server >> Display Data

    This will give you the status of the J2EE installation as well as its operation.

    Hope this helps.
