(First version February 2008, Updated March 2009)
This article is intended to familiarize Web service developers with the procedure for building and configuring standards-compliant Web services using tools shipped with SAP NetWeaver Process Integration 7.1.
Although we cover the complete service enabling process – which spans from designing objects to implementing, publishing, and consuming the resulting Web service – we have tried to be as brief as possible. To this end, we have reduced the set of steps to a minimum, and cover only the design objects that are essential to create a synchronous, stateless service interface, which is implemented in ABAP, and configured using the SOA Manager.
A greater level of detail is available in the online help for SAP NetWeaver PI 7.1.
