CALL A JAVA PROGRAM FROM ABAP -- NEED HELP

Hi all,
Can somebody tell me how to call a java xml code from an ABAP program? First let me know if at all, is it possible to call a java program from SAP that is from an ABAP executable progam?
Please suggest me in this. All your inputs in this is valuable to me and highly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Vaishnavi Varadarajan

Hi,
Previous explanation i gave is not correct.
ABAP web services expose the function modules outside R/3, so that other technologies like Java can consume that webservice and read the data in R/3 using the function module.
For your requirement, create a Java web service to read the XML. Consume this webservice in ABAP. This way you can read the XML from ABAP.

    Pabi,
    Using the RFC connection,we can establish a link between Java and SAP.
    Afterwards,hope we can call Java program from ABAP.
    Below is the sample piece of code to establish RFC connection(link) between Java and SAP.
    DATA: REQUTEXT LIKE SY-LISEL,
          RESPTEXT LIKE SY-LISEL,
          ECHOTEXT LIKE SY-LISEL.
    DATA: RFCDEST like rfcdes-rfcdest VALUE 'NONE'.
    DATA: RFC_MESS(128).
    REQUTEXT = 'HELLO WORLD'.

  • Error while calling java program from ABAP

    Hi Experts,
    We are trying for RFC inbound scenario.
    We followed the below blog
    /people/gregor.wolf3/blog/2004/08/26/setup-and-test-sap-java-connector-outbound-connection
    We are working with SAP JCO 3.0.2
    We are getting the error : 'STFC_CONNECTION' could not be found in the server repository.
    After I run the Java server program if I execute the RFC destination directly from SM 59 it is showing successful messages.
    If I stop the java program then this RFC is failing. Based on this we concluded that RFC to Java connection is working fine.
    But as mentioned in blog if we call the RFC Destination from ABAP program it is giving the below error,
    'STFC_CONNECTION' could not be found in the server repository.
    If we test the RFC destination using RFC_TRUSTED_CHECK standard FM we are getting the below error.
    'RFCPING' could not be found in the server repository.
    We create the RFC destination of Type : TCP/IP as exactly mention in the blog.
    Please help us in resolving this issue.
    Thanks

    This depends on the version of your Netweaver Java AS. If you are running 7.0, you will have to use the Jco framework. The Jco framework is deprecated since 7.1 though. If you want to build a RFC server in 7.1 or higher, it is adviced that you set it up through JRA.
    Implement an RFC server in 7.0:

  • Call a Java file from ABAP

    Hi,
    I would like your help in identifying a mechanism in calling a Java Program from an ABAP program. The requirement is that I need to pass enough parameters(possibly in a single object like a <i>table</i>) and fetch that in a Java Program residing in a jar in the J2EE engine. The possibility of this java file interpreting this incoming object and also be able to return something to ABAP which can eventually be printed on the screen needs to be known.
    I also would like to validate an assumption of mine which is that, the jar(the receipient java file) file needs to be put under the directory
    "\usr\sap\<i>SystemID</i>\<i>instancenumber</i>j2ee\deploying\lib"
    Appreciate your time and effort in helping me with this.
    Regards,
    Sam.

    i am not sure about
    I also would like to validate an assumption of mine which is that, the jar(the receipient java file) file needs to be put under the directory
    "\usr\sap\SystemID\instancenumberj2ee\deploying\lib"
    but for your case what you could do is, on the java side get developed a jsp page which will receive data and use the jar to proces and return the results as xml. once thats done.
    from abap you can use cl_http_client class to call this jsp page to pass parameters and get the processed results from jsp page.

  • Call a Java Function From Abap

    Hi, I need to call a java function from ABAP,  I have a WAS 640 to deploy the module.
    I have found this tutorial...
    [ABAP calls Java via RFC|/people/thorsten.franz3/blog/2008/11/21/abap-calls-java-via-rfc-1-introduction]
    The problem is that it uses a newer version of WAS and it implements EJB 3.0 wich only works on Java 5, but my WAS has java 1.4.2.
    Anyone knows how to adapt this Blog to a WAS 640 version ?
    Or Perhaps there is another way of doing this, maybe publishing my function as a web service.
    Regards.
    Mariano.

    Why don't you expose your Java functionality as a Web Service and consume it in ABAP program. That should be much easier and the web service can be used in other places as well.

  • Call Java Program from ABAP Program

    Dear all,
    In our scenario, we need to let ABAP call services provided by a standalone Java program. From online help I found some overview introduction and I'd make the called program a registered program in a RFC with type "T" (TCP/IP Connection). Can anybody give some concrete documentation? A step-by-step guide would be greatly appreciated.

  • Calling a Java Program from another

    Hi,
    I am putting together a Java program which will launch other Java programs.
    I was thinking of doing this by calling unix scripts from my java program by getting an instance of the Runtime object and then calling the exec method with the script name.
    I am just wondering what is the best practice when doing this? i.e., dealing with timeout issues, and errors in the scripts etc.
    I have read this article, which is quite good: http://www.javaworld.com/javaworld/jw-12-2000/jw-1229-traps.html?page=1
    Is there any code available on the web that deals with all of the basic error scenarios?
    Is it good practice to use a java program to call another java program? Or is there a better way of doing this?
    The main reason I am using java is because I am most familiar with it and I need to connect to a database as well and do some manipulation of results returned.
    Any thoughts or suggestions would be much appreciated.

    Thanks Prometheuzz
    Is the main difference between your suggestion and
    using the Runtime.getRuntime().exec(cmd) way of doing
    things is that in the former both eill run as the
    same process (Thread) but in the second scenario the
    .getRuntime().exec(cmd) will start a separate new
    thread?
    Many ThanksCorrect. But you can create a sort of wrapper class for A which implements Runnable and stuff it in it's own thread. If you're dealing with Java code only, I advise you to create threads yourself instead of letting your OS handle them.
    Here's a demo:
    class Foo {
        public static void main(String[] args) {
            (new Thread(new ARunner())).start();
            B.main(null);
    class ARunner implements Runnable {
        public void run() {
            A.main(null);
    class A {
        public static void main(String[] args) {
            try {
                Thread.sleep(3000);
            } catch (InterruptedException e) { /* ... */ }
            System.out.println("A");
    class B {
        public static void main(String[] args) {
            System.out.println("B");
    }Of course, you can create a wrapper for B as well.

  • Calling one java program from another

    Hello,
    How can I start another java program from one? Lets
    say I want Second.java to start by calling it from
    First.java. How do I do it? The two programs are given
    below. Any help is appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Amanda
    First.java
    import java.io.*;
    import java.lang.reflect.*;

              System.out.println("Hello World from First.java!");
              String second=new String("Second.java");
              //System.load(second);
              //Runtime.getRuntime().load(second);
              try

              catch (IOException ioe)
                   System.out.println(">>IOException thrown in
    First.java while calling

    Second.java
    public class  Second
         public static void main(String[] args)
              System.out.println("Hello World from Second.java!");
    }

    Thanks, warnerja
    What if Second.java is on a remote machine i.e.
    First.java and second.java are on different machines?
    Will I have to use RMI?Well, you'd have to do some kind of remote invocation. Depends on what kinds of apps house the classes. There are all kinds of ways - web services, servlets, RMI, (maybe others...)
    That's a totally different question than what you originally posted, and would have been very relevant to say so in the first place.

  • Calling a java program from a perl CGI

    The perl program takes form data, does stuff with it, writes it to a file, and then calls a java program to encrypt it, and email it.
    When I telnet to the server, I can run the java program using:
    java CryptoMail.class [email protected] data.txt
    The java program uses jar files which are defined in the Classpath in an .sh script in the etc/profile.d/ directory.
    When I run the perl cgi from the web, it doesn't work. I figured that it wasn't getting the classpath defined because the user wasn't actually logging in so I tried it with java -classpath etc...
    Any ideas???
    I tried the following:
    ==================
    $cmdtorun='/usr/j2sdk1.4.0_02/bin/java CryptoMail $email $file';
    system($cmdtorun);
    ==================
    and also tried variations of the following:
    ==================
    /usr/j2sdk1.4.0_02/bin/java -classpath .:/home/sites/site1/web/cgi-bin/activation.jar:/home/sites/site1/web/cgi-bin/mail.jar /home/sites/site1/web/cgi-bin/CryptoMail [email protected] /home/sites/site1/web/cgi-bin/wellsfargo.txt
    ==================

    >
    Any ideas???Write a script file that explicitly paths everything.
    Test it by setting the class path and path to nothing in the environment and seeing if it works.
    Redirect errors from everything to a log file.
    Then run the script from your perl program. Verify that it did not return any errors. Verify there are no errors in the log file.

  • Can I call a Java program from a SQL Server Trigger?

    Hello,
    I want to encrypt some data in a database column in SQL Server. Today I am using java code to encrypt the value and store it in the database using JDBC.
    Now I want to use a VB client to store the encrypted value in the SQL Server DB. Since the encryption is handled by a java class, can I write a trigger in SQL Server that while inserting the raw data, calls the java class for encrypting the value and then inserts the encrypted value into the column?
    In general, is it possible to call a java class from a SQL Server trigger?

    Here are 3 examples of code for insert, update and delete:
    CREATE TRIGGER [PLI_INSERT_TRIGGER] ON [dbo].[PLI]
    FOR INSERT
    AS
    Declare @cmd sysname, @code sysname, @list sysname
         Select @code = PLI_K_COD, @list = PLI_K_LISTINO from inserted
         Set @cmd = 'java mirrorDb.Copy PLI INSERT ' + @code + ' ' + @list

         Set @cmd = 'java mirrorDb.Copy PLI DELETE ' + @code + ' ' + @list
         EXEC master..xp_cmdshell @cmd
    you must go "sql server entreprise manager" right click on the table you want to add triggers and select: all activities, manage triggers.
    You have 3 examples: for an insert, for an update and for a delete
    ON [dbo].[PLI] specify the table on which you want to setup trigger.
    FOR DELETE, INSERT, UPDATE specify the event.
    The Declare statement create the variables in which I want to put some values to pass to the java program, for example which table, which event, which key fields.
    the "Select @code = PLI_K_COD, @list = PLI_K_LISTINO from inserted" set the variables with the value of the columns of the table I am interested to read from my java program, for example the variable @code receive the value of the column pli_k_kod (is the key) of the table PLI.
    The "Set @cmd = 'java mirrorDb.Copy PLI DELETE ' + @code + ' ' + @list " prepared the variable @cmd with the java command followed by the package.classname and parameters.
    The EXEC launch the command to the operating system.

I have tried exe4j trial version, but it was really a mess. Please give me some advices~~~

    Thx so much, i got it to work...is it possible for me
    to export it to a .jar file? and just double click it
    will run?Yes. Consult the Java Tutorial on using jars, and especially learn about the attribute "Main-Class" in manifest files. I also suggest you read the jar documentation here:
    http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/docs/guide/jar/index.html
    and how do you suppress all console output?
    TIAEither don't create it, or redirect it. Some operating systems provide a null device that can be used as a destination that acts as a data sink that will "eat" the data.
    See the setOut and setErr methods in java.lang.System class.
