RFCSDK impossible?


As I'm trying to develop a small module in C using the rfcsdk to get moniroting information from an SAP server, I downloaded the WAS640 but am stuck when trying to reach it (even from sapinfo) what am I doing wrong?

My program works as good as sapinfo by our customer's SAP system, so I don't think this is the problem.

The server I installed seems to have been configured (default settings) to be reachable through port 3601, but AFAIK the rfcsdk uses the sysnr to define the 33xx port number...

Maybe I'm not using the right server version?

Any help would be really appreciated.

    Hi Patrice,

    the downloaded WAS, if it's one of the Sneak Preview versions available at SDN, does not contain the ABAP stack. The port 3601 is the standard message server port of the J2EE cluster dispatcher. The only available evaluation version so far containing both stacks is the CeBIT" target="_blank">">CeBIT eval version for Linux.

      Hi Patrice,

      The RFCSDK primary peer is the ABAP Stack "period".

      If you only installed the Java Stack you probably do not have the proper tool.

      If you study the samples from the rfcsdk you will find that it is possible to write an RFCSDK based server that can then be accessed by an RFCSDK based client. But this will not help you since that would mean write a rfcserver that publish ccms data. And then, to feed that server you would need yet another mean to get to the ccms data. yet an other chicken and eggs,...


      rfcsdk is a good tool to

      write clients for abap server, and for rfc server

      write server for rfc clients

      In your case, you are missing the server that provide the data for RFC access. One such server is part of the abap stack but not part of the java stack.

      I have no clues about ccms but you should poke it's documentation to find how they publish their data on the java stack. soap, smtp, ...

      Hope this helps
