I have a RFC->XI->Webservice synchronous scenario.

After setting up all the things and after executing RFC, I get an error in sxmb_moni. I am pasting that error here,

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes" ?>

- <!-- Call Adapter


- <SAP:Error xmlns:SAP="" xmlns:SOAP="" SOAP:mustUnderstand="1">



<SAP:P1 />

<SAP:P2 />

<SAP:P3 />

<SAP:P4 />

<SAP:AdditionalText> failed to get the input stream from socket: java.lang.NullPointerException</SAP:AdditionalText>

<SAP:ApplicationFaultMessage namespace="" />

<SAP:Stack />



Can somebody explain me, what is this?

Or to cross-verify plz explain me steps for this scenario in detail.

Plz dont take me to the documentation present here for configuring Web service scenario. I have already read it and found out that it's not very useful at this stage.

Thanks & Regards,

Hi Smita,

Is This a Async or Synchron Connection ?

Is Your Error the Response from Webservice?

I my Opinion you have a Synchron Connection but your Webservice send no Response. So you get the "java.lang.NullPointerException".

Take a look to Adapter Monitor and Message Monitoring in Runtime Workbench. Maybe you find a detail Error description there.
