Does anyone know what values go into the parameters of AbstractType.descriptorSetElementProperties?

Below is sample code. Is this something that is generated?



AbstractType.descriptorSetElementProperties(descriptor, 0, "PERNR", null, null, "unqualified", "", "urn:sap-com:document:sap:rfc:functions", false, 1, 1, false, null, "Pernr", java.lang.String.class, null, new String[][] {

new String[] {

"pattern", "

}, new String[] {

"maxLength", "8"


}, "PERNR", 0, 0, 0, 8, 16, 8, 6, 0, "<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"UTF-8\"?>\n<ifr:field name=\"PERNR\" category=\"simple\" xmlns:ifr=\"urn:sap-com:ifr:v2:metamodel\" xmlns:ifr=\"urn:sap-com:ifr:v2:metamodel\"><ifr:descriptor><ifr:description language=\"EN\">Personnel Number</ifr:description></ifr:descriptor><ifr:properties><ifr:helpValuesSupported>false</ifr:helpValuesSupported><ifr:offset1>0</ifr:offset1><ifr:offset2>0</ifr:offset2><ifr:offset4>0</ifr:offset4></ifr:properties><ifr:definition><ifr:scalarType name=\"PERNR_D\"><ifr:properties><ifr:helpValuesSupported>false</ifr:helpValuesSupported><ifr:fixedValuesListDefined>false</ifr:fixedValuesListDefined><ifr:mixedCaseSupported>false</ifr:mixedCaseSupported><ifr:signedNumber>false</ifr:signedNumber></ifr:properties><ifr:definition><ifr:type>NUMC</ifr:type><ifr:abapType>N</ifr:abapType><ifr:length>8</ifr:length><ifr:internalLength1>8</ifr:internalLength1><ifr:internalLength2>16</ifr:internalLength2><ifr:internalLength4>8</ifr:internalLength4><ifr:decimals>0</ifr:decimals><ifr:outputLength>8</ifr:outputLength></ifr:definition></ifr:scalarType></ifr:definition></ifr:field>");

    sorry, this is not very helpful. Where did you find this?

    The code we deliver for 6.40 has 1.5 GB footprint on a disk, so you cannot expect anybody knows what you're talking about...

    Hi Mike,

    having a look at my crystal ball 😉 this is a part of a class generated by the SAP Enterprise Connector, so the answer is "yes" it's generated from the interface definitions of a Remote function module.
