I am sure many of you would have already done some mobile application development using web services on SUP/SMP Mobile workspace. Recently i came across one issue while connecting the web services (publicly available) for creating MBO(Mobile Business Object).
I got one public SOAP based web service URL and i am trying to create a new connection profile in SMP Mobile workspace. (more details here how to create a web service connection profile) and got “Connection time out:Connect” error (as mentioned in below screenshot) after pinging “Test Connection“.
I downloaded this WSDL file on my system and tried to create the connection profile (by accessing downloaded wsdl file). Ping was successful.
So thought of creating one MBO using the same SOAP web service. While creating the MBO, at one stage again i faced the “Connection time out:Connect” error.
How to resolve this issue?
We need to configure proxy settings in SMP workspace (Eclipse).
- Go to Window>Preferences in Mobile Workspace
- Preferences box prompt out, choose “Network Connections“
- Select “Manual” from Action Provider in the drop-down
- Select “HTTP” >Click on “Edit“
- Provide required proxy details with port number.
Note: If external URL is HTTPS based then do it for HTTPS as well.
Now i could able to create MBO successfully.
I hope this will help you. Your comments and suggestions are most welcome.
