SAP::WAS::SOAP - SOAP encoded RFC calls against SAP R/3 / Web Application Server (WAS)
# Setup up a service in the SAP WAS server for an RFC-XML based call to RFC_READ_REPORT # called test:ReadReport to make this example work
my $url = 'http://localhost:8080/sap/bc/soap/rfc';
my $rfcname = 'RFC_READ_REPORT';
# build the connecting object
my $sapsoap = new SAP::WAS::SOAP( URL => $url );
# Discover the interface definition for a function module
my $i = $sapsoap->Iface( $rfcname );
# set a parameter value of the interface
# call the WAS soap service with an interface object
$sapsoap->soaprfc( $i );
print "Name:", $i->TRDIR->structure->NAME, "\n";
print "Array of Code Lines ( a hash per line including struture fieldnames ):\n";
print Dumper ( $i->Tab('QTAB')->rows );
Enabler for HTTP based SOAP calls to SAP using the WAS ( Web Application Server ) using the ICMAN interface ( SAP's Internet Connection MANager ). You need to ensure that login to the /sap/bc/soap/rfc service has been configured correctly using SAP transaction SICF, first, or this will not work ( under the version 6.10 WAS that I used the only thing I had to change was the settings for the auto login user ) - this corresponds directly to the URL that is supplied to the SAP::WAS::SOAP constructor.
my $rfc = new SAP::WAS::SOAP( URL => <url to my WAS SOAP interface > );
my $i = $rfc->Iface( <some RFC name> );
< set some parameters in the interface object > .....
$rfc->soaprfc( $i ); # execute the rfc call encoded in SOAP via the WAS
