Connect Sybase SDK with SAP BAPI

Today I accessed the developer center here on SCN for mobility after the big announcement and downloaded the Sybase SDK 2.1.3. After installing it on my Windows 7 first thing was to connect it to an ABAP system. Luckily, I have one running on my system: SAP Gateway NLP SP3 trial. Only used it for some performance tests, so I started the VM and connected my Workplace.

Inserted the connection properties


Pinged the instance to see if everything is reachable


Double clicked the SAP system item


Got an error:



I remembered that I already saw this error, and even solved it, once, but never blogged about it. Accessed transaction SWO2 (why SWO2? You know why …) and got another error:


That’s an error I can enter in the search field for notes in SMP to see if there is any SAP Note about this error. And of course there is one:

Note 706195 – BAPIs are missing in the component hierarchy display. This note looked very familiar, so I executed the steps outlined in my ABAP system:

1. Call the test environment for function modules  RS_COMPONENT_VIEW


2. Test the function module RS_COMPONENT_VIEW in sequence with the following parameters


Afterwards, I refreshed the NLP node in the SUP Workplace.


Now the BAPIs are shown and I can start creating MBOs around them.

      Hi Tobias,

      Need some help with SUP to SAP RFC connection.

      I have successfully established the connection to the SAP server.

      But under the server i do not get the hierarchy options Application Platform , Basic Components etc.

      Therefore i am unable to see the RFC which i have created in SAP.

      Do i need to do anything specific to see the RFC's.

      Apply SAP Note 706195 in the respective SAP system. It can be done by an ABAP guy.

      First, that's a question regarding a specific problem, so you should ask it in the mobile space.

      Second, my blog contains a possible solution (apply a SAP Note), but without knowing what you have done and which error you get it's impossible to give an answer (in the discussion, not here)

      Hi Tobias,

      Thanks for the quick response.

      I thought i had missed a step or a configuration for SUP.

      I did not apply the note since i did not get the specific error as mentioned in this post.

      Extremely sorry about it. I will log this in the mobile discussion.

      Thanks a lot for your help.

      Hi Tobias,

      I connected to the SAP server succesfully. But try to create a MBO based on my own created custom BAPI, it doesn't apear in the list of BAPIs/RFCs.

      Can you help me?
