Define SAP® servers connections

You can define SAP® servers connection preferences for DML Mappings in:

Select Window > Preferences > Axway > Connections > SAP Servers.

SAP® servers connector libraries

A number of SAP® connector libraries are required to access an SAP® system. These libraries are not distributed with the Mapping Services application. You can download them from the SAP® Web site. An SAP® license is required.

The required libraries to connect to an SAP® system are:sapjco3.dll, sapjco3.jar and sapidoc3.jar.

You must copy the library sapjco3.dll to one of the following:

  • <Mapping Services installation folder>/plugins/com.axway.ms.dml.sap.bundle_3.0.0.vxxxxxxxx-xxxx
  • <Mapping Services installation folder>/plugins/com.axway.dml.mapper.standalone_2.5.0.vxxxxxxxx-xxxx/engine/load
Note   Use the 64 bit dll version.

You must copy the sapjco3.jar and sapidoc3.jar libraries to one of the following:

  • <Mapping Services installation folder>/plugins/com.axway.ms.dml.sap.bundle_3.0.0.vxxxxxxxx-xxxx/lib
  • <Mapping Services installation folder>/plugins/com.axway.dml.mapper.standalone_2.5.0.vxxxxxxxx-xxxx/engine/java/lib/ext

After copying the jar and dll files to the corresponding folders, you must restart Mapping Services for the changes to take effect.
