hi,

<b>They are different:</b>

SAP Connector : A development tool, that helps classes and RFC function module method calls in Java application.

JCO : They are often called as JCO RFC provider service. They offer two types of connection a)TCP/IP b)Through shared memory

Hi,

which application are you using, if it is web dynpro then its 100% JCO RFC connector. or in short it is JCOs

SAP connector is used mainly in Java applications

But how to check that Connector settings and know that it is JCo only and not SAP Enterprise Connector ?

There is nothing you will see the names SAP Connector or JCO RFC connector.

in case of SAP Connector , we explicitly need to create connection, by giving credentials of backend sysetm programmatically.

In case of JCOs they are created in Content Administrator(goto http://<server ip>:50000/index.htm), here you will find the Content Administrator in which you define the Jcos to be used.

In your program if you want to see the names of the Jcos,

right click on project->properties->WebDynpro references ->JCO references , if something is here so you can say that your application is using JCO(which is bydefault in WD)and their names are what you see here.

hope it helps

Hai,

Using JCO You need to code yourselef to Generate Proxies , but Using EC

that will generate all the ready to use proxies.
