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.

    Hi Bharat,

    see this weblog , where it gives the steps to create a RFC and convert it into web service.

    Invoking WS is similar to calling any other WS from other containers. Either you have to give the WSDL file location or the external UDDI Server address in WebService creation wizard.

    The WebService exapmles is also avaliable in help.sap.com
