Webservices possible with SAP R/3 4.72 ?

I have a question about webservices for SAP HR.

At this moment we have:

- SAP R/3 4.72

- Solutionmanager, KM and Enterprise Portal (Netweaver)

Is it possible to use webservices for HR with SAP R/3 4.72 in combination with this Netweaver installation we have? Or do we have to wait until ERP2005 before we can use webservices for HR?

We like to use a webservice to interface between SAP TimeManagement and a time clock.

Kind Regards

You can use XI as a middleware for exposing R/3 4.72 functionality. All you need to do is create an RFC enabled function module and implement your functionality in that function, use XI to expose that FM as a webservice and consume that service anywhere..

I am not sure about R/3 4.72 but AFAIK for exposing webservices, you need an Internet Communication Framework. Which is available since release WAS 6.20 or later.

Also try to execute transaction WSADMIN in your R/3 system, if it is working then you can expose your functionality as a webservice.
