Step10. Provide the service name ‘ZDEMO_SERV1’ and click on Continue button.

Step11. Under the Login Data tab, provide the user credentials and then click on Hander List Tab.

Step12. Provide the above created CLASS Name and save it and go back.

Step13. The service ‘ZDEMO_SERV1’ is inactive.

Step14. Right Click on the service ‘ZDEMO_SERV1’ and click on Activate Service.

Step15. Click on YES button.

Step16. The service ‘ZDEMO_SERV1’ is active now.

Step17. Right click on service name and click on Test Service button.

      Hi Sir,

      My question is:

      What is the difference in WEb service created by using FM and Class? Which one is secure of the modern way and why?

      I never post.  And I don't have time to look.


      However posted this, THIS IS HUGE and AMAZING!!!!


      There are a number of technical details missing, but this is the best post existing to simply explain on how to create an SAP class to support a CUSTOM SAP URL with SICF.


      Now, be extremely cautious with coding a URL with a user id and password!!!!


      But with the basic info provided above, a reasonable SAP technical person can extend this info on how to build a more extensive HTTP(S) call.


      You rock!!!!
