One or two years ago I have been experimenting with connecting iWay (java iXTE) to miniSAP, and it worked and it was easy to connect. I could suppose that the situation is similar when connecting WebFOCUS. There is nothing better to do, like following the documentation and trying to connect.
As I remember there were no business modules in miniSAP, just the SAP Basis (maybe it was specific fo my installation), so not too much to report from.

thanks Grzegorz

Thehe are a different connection for WebFOCUS and Iway. With Webfocus is necessary download to the SAP or miniSAP 10 programs when you configure the system query adapter for r/3. Now i dont' use iway but i think the connections is directly to the system SAP.

I check the istruction for the ibi manual for r/3 and i create the development class and function group but when i install ibi component not write in the miniSAP???

you have an idea for resolve this problems??

more thanks

Stefano,

Unfortunately, I have never tried to configure WebFOCUS with SAP or miniSAP. My previous post was just the supposition, but it is not as easy as I supposed.

I hope someone else on the forum will give you a hint.

Good Luck

In order to access SAP R3 files as a data source
you have to license this WebFocus option.
Contact your local IBI sales office.
