    Sure thing, first u have to define ur Services in the PortalApps.xml. Once u do that then u will be on ur way. I attaching the Sample portal apps and also the sample code.

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>



    <property name="ServicesReference" value=",,,,,,, usermanagement,, , landscape, jcoclient"/>

    <property name="releasable" value="true"/>



    <component name="empSearch">


    <property name="ClassName" value=""/>

    <property name="SecurityZone" value=""/>



    <property name="System" value="SAP_ED"/>

    <property name="tagLib" value="/SERVICE/htmlb/taglib/htmlb.tld"/>






    Above view the <application-config> tags where we have defined the services. Please note the example I will be showing uses the Database with an Alias, just ask ur system admin to mount the database for u as using an Alias is mich more simpler.

    private IConnection getJDBCConnection(

    String systemAlias,

    IPortalComponentRequest request)

    throws ConnectorException, Exception {

    try {

    IConnectorGatewayService cgService =

    (IConnectorGatewayService) PortalRuntime




    if (cgService == null) {

    throw new ConnectorException("Error in get Connector Gateway Service");


    // Use the Connector Gateway to get connection to JDBC DB

    ConnectionProperties cp =

    new ConnectionProperties(



    return cgService.getConnection(systemAlias, cp);

    } catch (NoLogonDataAvailableException e) {

    throw new ConnectorException(

    "*** No Logon Data supplied: "

    + e.getNestedException().getLocalizedMessage());

    } catch (ConnectorException e) {

    throw new ConnectorException(

    "*** Connector Exception: "

    + e.getLinkedException().getLocalizedMessage());



    This will establish the connection, and this code works very well, so try it out and if u have any difficulties let me know.

    Please score my reply, thanks.

    Best Wishes,

      Hi Emmanuel,

      Thanks for responding.The method u gave is correct.It works fine,with that method I already did

      an example which connects R3 system.As I mentioned

      in previous post.I need information regarding .rar files

      and deploy tool.I was trying to deploy jdbcconnector.rar file using deploy tool but could not do it.

      I am trying an example containing this line.

      connectionFactory = (IConnectionFactory)initctx.lookup("EISConnections/JDBCFactory");

      To execute this line,I think we need to deploy .rar files with deploy tool.But I am unable to do so..

      Do u have any idea in this regard.Help me
