Unable to create Metadata connection for Dictionary Provider

Hi,

I am getting the following error while I try to run a Web Dynpro Application;

The initial exception that caused the request to fail, was:

com.sap.dictionary.runtime.DdException: 'WD_RFC_METADATA_DEST' not properly defined! Unable to create Metadata connection for Dictionary Provider. Either the logical System Name 'WD_RFC_METADATA_DEST' has not been properly defined in the System Landscape Directory, or you are not using a MsgServerDestination (AppServerDestinations are not permitted for Metadata connections)

The JCo Connections are tested and pinged, they work fine.

Can anyone please tell what the error could be?
