ArchiveLink - Archiveserver

i would like to test the sap-archivelink interface. now i must define an rfc-destination (sm59). the destination needs a program-id (archiveserver-rfc-program). could I test the archivelink-interface without any archiveserver, if yes, how? or could you name me an freeware archiveserver to test it.

thank you

Hi Markus,

it depends on your SAP basis release. From Release 4.5B you can use any HTTP 4.5 certified archive system. SAP also delivers the SAP Content server which is the reference implementation of the interface.

If you want (or must) use the prior ArchiveLink RFC interface you need a certified archive system. As far as I know, there is no freeware implementation.

But, if you've got a system > 4.5B you can use the SAP content server for most ArchiveLink scenarios.

If you have Web AS 6.20 or higher you can even use the SAP database as a content server.

Best regards
