Can't add SAP Java AS on NWDS 7.3


I've downloaded NWDS 7.3 (SAP NetWeaver 7.3 SP07 PAT0005) and I'm trying to connect it with my EP (Kernel Version: 7.30.3710.159124.20110824120645). I'm going to Windows -> Preferences -> SAP AS Java and click on Add button.

I'm entering the host instance name and instance number (Instance Number: 56) and, when I click on OK button nothing happens... If I enter a wrong host instance name or a wrong instance number the NWDS shows me an error message. Otherwise, if everything is correct, it just closes the popup window and returns to the SAP AS Java initial screen with no system on it.

I really appreciate any help.

Hello Nelson,

could you please answer these questions?


can you add any other instances (besides the one with instance num 56) or do you have problem only with this one?


Do you have firewall in your landscape that eventually could cause the problems?


What JDK are you using for this NWDS client? As I can see from the trace you are using one from sun/oracle. Could you please make an attempt to install SAPVM6? You can get it from here:

(this link is for 731, because the 730 one is broken at the moment, we are working on it already. the SAPVM6 is the same anyway for both of them).

Thanks and Regards,
