ICM port question

Hi forum,

I am facing a strange behaviour in the ICM at a double stack installation.

The ICM ABAP port is 8100(<ABAP_PORT>) and the J2EE port is 51000 (<J2EE_PORT>). Now when I call a ULR http://<HOST>:<J2EE_PORT>/nwa I am reaching the NWA. So far so good.

But when I am using http://<HOST>:<ABAP_PORT>/nwa I am also reaching the NWA. I would have expected, that when using the ABAP port the side would not get displayed.

Why does this work... some profile params I don't know yet?

Thank you!

Hi Chris,

This behaviour is the standard one.

On a double stack installation, the ABAP ICM is supposed to be the standard frontend for HTTP requests.

In fact, it is a sort of reverse proxy which directs all URLs beginning with /sap to tha abap engine (ICF) and all others to the SAP J2EE engine.

Therefore, from the outside, client systems get the feeling that they connect to a unique Netweaver application server and not to 2 different application servers (abap and java).

Regards,

Olivier
