Building a SDA for deployment with the SDM


we are trying to build an SDA-File which contains a EAR and some content from a Transport-Package which was created by a SAP EP 6.0 SP9.

I realized that some SAP_MANIFEST.MF file is needed to integrate the EPA-File into the SDA-File.

It is possible to generate such a package just for test purpose? Or do we have to ask SAP for the relevant keys and information which will be containt in the SAP_MANIFEST_MF files?

Thank you!

    Hi Mirko,

    Do you already have the SAP make tool installed in your system?? If yes then all you need to do is execute the following from the command line

    epa2sda <source file> <development component name> [<result directory>]

    Hope this helps...


    P.S. Dont forget to award points if answer is helpful.

      Hi Akhilesh,

      thank you very much 😉

      Your response indeed solved my problem. Actually I have not used the sapmake_util before. But with your information I found SAP note 696084 which explains it's usage.

      Maximum points have been awarded! Many greetings!
