Have you installed WAS 6.40, if not get it from ot incase it is installed is it local or remote

you have to specify the server host in NWDS as mentioned by other posts if it is local mention local if it is remote <servername>, indicate port as 3601, new in windows show view -> j2ee enginee -> you will see



Server should show Green signal .. now you are ready tobuild and run applications..

hopw this helped you

Hi Naidu,

There are two possibilities.

One is as described in above posts where you have to set your J2EE server.

second is to check whether specified J2EE server is up and running.

You can check this by opening J2EE engine view from Windows->show view->J2EE Engine.

If it shows dispacher, sdm and server0 instances as green means server is up and running. otherwise start your J2EE server.

If it works then don't forget to reward points

In your NetWeaver Developer Studio (NDS)

1. Click Windows --> Preferences --> SAP J2EE Engine

2. Enter the SDM host

3. Message Server port

Try deploying it.

Go to Windows>Preferences>J2EE Engine settings and enter your Message Server Host name as "Machine Name where your WEBAS is running" and port as 36<J2EE instance number + 1> For example if your Port number is 50000 then your Message server port would be 3601.

If it is 50100 then your Messager server port would be 3602.

P.S : The points if awarded should be given to Santhosh :).
