ABAP to Java (on Sybase EAServer)

Hello,

we have to build an interface between SAP 4.6c and a component (EJB/Corba) on "Sybase EAServer" which is a J2EE 1.3 Applicationserver. To EAServer you can talk via IIOP or HTTP protocol. No chance to add a listener for RFC protocol.

For that reason, it seems impossible for me to build a construction described in SAP blueprints : Outbound RFC -> JCO > Java Application.

Is anybody experienced in performing ABAP to Java where the Java Stack is not on the SAP WebAS?

Where are the alternatives for a synchronous call?

Thanks in advance, Ulf

    well i think there might be a possibilty

    create a stand alone programm implemeting a jco server (which then can be called by sap) and then inside this stand alone program call an ejb (stateless) on your j2ee server passing the jco.function to this ejb for further processing

    this is the way it works on the webas (there is a special service called jco rfc provider service)

    regards franz

    Thanks Franz,

    this will possibly work.

    What I now have to think about is how to integrate this little server in Logging and Monitoring and Starting and Stopping for this Component will have no container (wether SAP, nor Sybase) who cares for it.

    Greetings Ulf

      maybe you could put it into an web application using a context listener (see javax.servlet.ServletContextListener) to start a thread doing the sap -> j2ee communication. Then your application would reside in the j2ee container
