Calling a Web Service from J2EE application running on WebSphere


This may have been answered before, but could not find using multiple searches that I did on this forum.

We are just in the process of using the newly installed SAP WAS 6.40 with J2EE engine and I understand from SAP's documentation that all BAPIs and remotely callable RFCs should be invokable via a Web Service call from remote applications. Couple of questions on this:

1. Is there a documentaion that describes steps to enable BAPIs or RFCs as web services?

2. Is there a documentation that describes steps to invoke a web service that in turn uses BAPI or RFC (code sample).

We are J2EE literates but not familiar with SAP WAS, and not sure if calling/invoking the WS would be similar to calling any other WS from other WS Containers.

Appreciate a response or suggestions.
