Web service creation with SAP NW 7 SP 14
I found this blog on web service creation with transaction SOAMANAGER:
I know that the obsolete transactions WSADMIN and WSCONFIG do not work anymore and are now replaced by new transaction SOAMANAGER. Before upgrading I never needed the obsolete transactions because I was using the Web Service Creation Wizard in transaction SE37. But how to release a web service for soap runtime now? The wizard says one should use the new transaction WSADMIN2. This transaction seems to refer to the JAVA stack. Do I really need to install J2EE to publish web services I created from abap function modules?
Thanks for any answers.
Follow these steps (roughly described):
- Create a fucntion module (remote enabled)
- Activate it.
- Using the context menu of that function in SE80 goto create webservice -> The wizard starts
- Choose proxy for service provider
- enter service name
- choose end point type "FUNC" (function module - inside out)
- choose your function
- activate "deploy service"
If all necessary services in SICF are activated all points on the left of the wizard should become green.
Goto transaction soamanager, business administration, web-service-administration, search for your service.
There you should find you service.
If you already have a java stack in your system environment (e.g. on solution manager) then you can use that one to test your service from soamanager.
Therefore you just need a connection between your ERP and that java-system (e.g. SSO) and enter the url of your java system in soamanager technical configuration, system settings, j2ee settings.
