SDK's for SAP BO integration

Hi,

What is the importance of installing the SDK for RFC & JCO while integrating BO with SAP?

Also does installing & configuring sapjco-ntintel-2.1.9 take care of installing JCO SDK?

Cheers,

Alok kakani

    Hi Ingo,

    Just would like to confirm that not installing the RFC SDK will not hamper any BO SAP integration? (As mentioned in the SAP Install & Admin guides as a pre install requirement)

    Cheers,

    Alok

    There are 3 files in the JCO package which are used for the integration of BO and SAP BW:

    2 library files (in Windows librfc32.dll and sapjcorfc.dll) which implement the connectivity over RFC and a JAR file (sap.jco.jar) which has to be deployed on the web server and implements the java interface to the JCO functionalities.

    I am not really sure what you mean by SDK here. Installing those 3 files should be sufficient.

    Regards,

    Stratos

    Hi Stratos,

    Thanks for your reply.

    I was going through the documentation for Installing SAP integration kit Sp3 where i found a line " Before installing SAP integration, you must install SAP RFC SDK and SAP JCO SDK, which can be downloaded from the SAP Marketplace at service.sap.com/bosap-support"

    I am not sure what exactly needs to be done in such a case.

    Cheers,

    Alok

    • Hi,

      as Stratos mentioned above on the windows deployment you only need 2 files from the SAP Jco.
