Configuring DTR client on NWDS

I am having difficulties to tell our Basis/Portal people on how they can help me to set up the DTR link on my NWDS. I know the portal server but not the path to the DTR. Is there a way to find this and if so how can I do this?

I am tying to add a service to the ESS portal and need to be able to debug the portal Java stack. We have a special need for a handling service selections and tis requires details that are not available any more at the time the service is called.

I already checked the simple stuff and I am able to creat my own, but how can I explain o the portal people what I need to set up the development environment so I can access what is on the portal box? I have the server but not the reposiory path.

    Hi Andreas,

    indeed that is right, you need to log in to the NWDI from your NWDS first in order to proceed as I described. For that you'll require the URL to the SLD configured in the devconf pool settings as mentioned by Deepak (however without sld/cimom, only using http://<host>:<port> is also fine. Important is only that this is the engine of the SLD you have configured for your NWDI domain in the Landscape Configurator of the CMS webui (domain data tab)). After this you can use the DTR client creation steps or use the default ones displayed automatically in your DTR perspective.

    Best Regards,

    Hi Andreas,

    Actually, the DTR is part of the NWDI (DI usage type) and is recommended to be installed on a separate j2ee engine.

    If you know the NWDI server then the path is <protocol>://<host>:<port>/dtr/

    Hope it helps.

    Hi Andreas,

    you can also reach it using the http://<host>:<port>/devinf link and then click on the DTR link from that page.

    ! Notice, these resources will be only available if you have deployed the NWDI software components. These are:




    You can always check the status of your engine using


    (if this is higher equal to 7.1, then use http://<host>:<port>/nwa/sysinfo -- go to "Components" tab)

    Caveat factor: On CE there's no NWDI available on 7.1 only as of 7.1 EHP1 (i.e. 711)

    On 640/700 the NWDI is avaialble as well of course.

    In NWDS you need to switch on the DTR perspective (Window -- Open Perspective -- DTR) and there you'll be able to connect to the corresponding DTR (i.e. you can create the client here from the NWDS menu: DTR -- Create Client).

    Let me know if you have further questions.

    Thank you!

    Best Regards,

    you have to enter nwdi url as below in your nwds, Ask the same from your administrators :


    go to Windows> Preferences> Java Development Infrastructure>Dev. configuration Pool and enter the url as mentioned above. you should use fully qualified domain name for host. You can also define the root folder for your developments.

    Apply the settings , it will automatically configure the dtr in your nwds. You can check the same under Team>DTR> Connection settings.

    • Hi Andreas,

      the 404 means that the resource is not available on the engine. This means: the mentioned Software components like DI_CMS, DI_CBS and DI_DTR are not available on your server. If you want to check the ComponentInfo page as mentioned earlier and you have authorization issue, then I agree that you need to talk to your basis admin colleagues, since accessing that page requires J2EE Administrator authorization.

      Regarding the software, you can download them from here: --> Support Packages and Patches - Entry by Application Group --> SAP NetWeaver and complementary products --> !! (since I don't know your release, I mention from here one example, but intuitively you need to select the release matches to your engine) --> SAP NETWEAVER --> SAP NETWEAVER 7.0 --> Entry by Component --> Development Infrastructure --> This is the locaation of:




      As mentioned, take the release you have, and also the SP like other SC files on your ComponentInfo page.

      If you tell me some examples, or if you copy-paste the componentInfo page here (or send via mail) I can tell you precisly which files to download.

      Best Regards,
