This article shows a simple JSP program calling SAP Remote function module via JCo(SAP Java Connector).
How to create JCO and JDK environment is on another article(Japanese).
How to create Eclipse and Jetty environment is on another article(Japanese).

Development Environment

  • IDE: Eclipse(Oxygen.2 Release (4.7.2))
  • JDK: Oracle JDK 1.8.0_152(not SAP JDK)
  • JCo: SAP Java Connector 3.0.17
  • Web Server: Jetty(Eclipse plugin "Eclipse Jetty3.9.0" and "Run-Jetty-Run 1.3.5-nightly")

JSP code

Very simple program calling function module "STFC_CONNECTION".

    <%@ page language="java" contentType="text/html; charset=Windows-31J"%>
    <%@ page
    // ABAP Application Server
    static String ABAP_AS = "ABAP_AS_WITHOUT_POOL"; 

    // Destination Properties
    static {
        Properties connectProperties = new Properties();
        connectProperties.setProperty(DestinationDataProvider.JCO_ASHOST, "XXXX"); //host name or ip address
        connectProperties.setProperty(DestinationDataProvider.JCO_SYSNR, "00");
        connectProperties.setProperty(DestinationDataProvider.JCO_CLIENT, "400");
        connectProperties.setProperty(DestinationDataProvider.JCO_USER, "fukuhara");
        connectProperties.setProperty(DestinationDataProvider.JCO_PASSWD, "XXXX"); //password
        connectProperties.setProperty(DestinationDataProvider.JCO_LANG, "en");
        createDataFile(ABAP_AS, "jcoDestination", connectProperties);

    //Create SAP Destination properties
    static void createDataFile(String name, String suffix, Properties properties) {
        File cfg = new File(name + "." + suffix);
        if (!cfg.exists()) {
            try {
                FileOutputStream fos = new FileOutputStream(cfg, false);
      , "for tests only !");
            } catch (Exception e) {
                throw new RuntimeException("Unable to create the destination file " + cfg.getName(), e);

        //Get Destination
        JCoDestination destination = JCoDestinationManager.getDestination(ABAP_AS);

        //Get metadata of function module "STFC_CONNECTION"
        JCoFunction function = destination.getRepository().getFunction("STFC_CONNECTION");
        if (function == null)
            throw new RuntimeException("TFC_CONNECTION not found in SAP.");

        //Set Import parameter of the function module
        function.getImportParameterList().setValue("REQUTEXT", "Hello SAP");
        try {

            //Call Function
        } catch (AbapException e) {

    <%-- Get result of the function module--%>
