Additional 6.40 J2EE instance for ADOBE integration


We are running the Web Application Server 6.40 on MS SQL. Since the J2EE stack - according to SAP - cannot yet be installed in a clustered environment, we decided to install the ABAP stack only to achieve High Availability.

Now we got a request to print PDFs which would require the Adobe integration which itself needs the J2EE stack.

My question:

Would it be possible to run our 6.40 ABAP stack as it is right now (clustered) and to install a separate non-clustered 6.40 instance for the J2EE stack ONLY and still be able to use the Adobe functionality within the 6.40 ABAP stack?

Thanks in advance!

    Hello Guenter,

    not quite correct: The J2EE stack CAN be installed in cluster environment on a project based approach. That is, because we have not yet documented all details to do this.

    If you want to be on the safe side, please read note 803018, which asks you to register your project. Then we will revise your architecture to make sure it will work as expected.

    To answer your question: Yes. Your environemnt would work that way also, except that you had no failover for Java, of course.

    • Hi G√ľnther,

      a couple of notes on the Adobe topic:

      - The communication between the ABAP Engine and the Adobe document services uses the HTTP protocol, not RFC. Because of the HTTP, your intended setup (ABAP clustered, J2EE not) might work for standard ABAP-based printing scenarios (no guarantees from SAP, though, this setup has not been tested).

      - In general, it is possible to install the ADS on a separate machine, it is done at SAP internally.

    since the ABAP & the Java stacks communicate via RFC in the Adobe/PDF environment, it should be possible to use an additional standalone Java-installation for this purpose.
