Connecting SAP RFC/IDOC server program (java) to SAP ES Workspace System

Hi,

i have an implementation of (java based using SAP JCO) RFC/IDOC server program which is able to connect to an external sAP system. I have recently registered on the shared test environment of SAP ES workspace system "HU2 SAP ERP 6.0 (ECC 6.00 EhP4 SP04)" . However i am not able to gain access to some of the administrative transactions (ie:-SM59,SM30,etc) from the SAP ES system ,that is required to set up my SAP program . AFAIK we do need to setup logical system/partner profiles so that SAP ES system would be able to communicate through. Is this a limitation of SAP ES system ? please let me know if there's a workaround or some way way we would be able to connect these two systems . thanks in advance ....

Regards,

Udayanga

    >> Is this a limitation of SAP ES system ?

    can you explain more on this as i didnt understand the context.

    Better use SAP XI as middleware in between these two systems.

    If for any reason you dont want to have a middleware, then you can go ahead with JCO server program concept as you mentioned. For authorizations you need get in touch with basis team. Actually basis team can create these entries from ur guidance.

      Hi,

      thanks a lot for your feedback. please see my comments below

      >>can you explain more on this as i didnt understand the context.

      part of my problem is i dont have a real SAP R/3 system to test my component out. Hence i tried with remotely hosted SAP system (SAP ERP) which is being provided by SAP Enterprise Services (ES) Workplace [1] . This is actually a SAP test environment or sandbox like space hosted by SAP. Actually when you register you get access to several SAP systems (ie:- SAP ERP, CRM,PI,SCM,etc) to try/test out different SAP scenarios you might have. However these systems did not allow me to do any of the stuff to connect an external JCO program with it. i am wondering whether SAP ESW systems only permits me to do SAP SOA level integrations and other native tasks. This may be a limitation of the hosted systems (ie:-since it is a shared env , may be to do with security concerns). WDYT?

      thanks . i did go through these blogs. This is what i actually intended to do with SAP ES system , but failed 😔
