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.
