Retrieveing data from a non-SAP system into SAP


I'm trying to pass a 'HTTPS: //' link from ABAP to an external system that in return will send back a response as a text. Using internet explorer I can retrieve data from the external system by doing so.

My understanding that, using HTTP_POST function module will allow this? Do you have an example of what is required as parameters to run the single test for this function module? Also is there any specific setting for the RFC-Destination?

We are on release 4.7.

Appreciate your response.

    HTTP_POST will not allow HTTPS link . May be try enabling HTTPS in SAP (,289483,sid21_gci783164,00.html) and then use HTTP_POST.

    Without this when i tried to use HTTP_POST for HTTPS links system throws a error - "Connect Error:OpenSSL not available".

    Try to use the internet connection framework classes.

      Thanks a lot for the info. It looks like using the internet connection framework classes will allow you to connect and get data from a non-sap system. Do you have by chance a sample program that will send a HTTP query and get the result back in a structure?

      Best regards,
