          Hi Mahesh,

          I understand that the SAP R3 JCA resource adapter should be available from http://service.sap.com.

          There are basically two jar files and a few windows dlls that you will need.

          ra.jar : The resource adapter jar, developed by in-q-my (a subsiduary of SAP)
          jco.jar : Java Connector Object from SAP.
          jRFC11.dll
          jRFC12.dll
          librfc32.dll
          msvcp60.dll : dlls for the JCO

          1) You need to have the dlls aviable in your path
          2) You then need to create a rar file (resource adapter resource). This is just a zip archive with the extension (rar) containing the following files:
          a) jco.jar
          b) ra.jar
          c) manifest.mf
          d) ra.xml : (see end of msg) - just put in your client number, username, password, server settings
          3) You will then need to create a sap-r3-service.xml file. I posted a template to the jboss list.
          4) Put the rar file and the sap-r3-service.xml file in your jboss/server/default/deploy directory.
          5) You will also need to add the following to your jboss/server/default/conf/login-config.xml file:

          <application-policy name = "SAPR3Realm">

          <login-module code = "org.jboss.resource.security.ConfiguredIdentityLoginModule" flag = "required">
          <module-option name = "principal">your username</module-option>
          <module-option name = "userName">your username</module-option>
          <module-option name = "password">your password</module-option>
          <module-option name = "managedConnectionFactoryName">jboss.jca:service=XaTxCM,name=SAPConnectorFactory</module-option>
          </login-module>

          </application-policy>

          6) If all has gone well, when you start up jboss the resource adapter should deploy successfully,

            Hi Chris,

            Thanks for ur help.

            Now whne i deploy sap adapter on JBoss 3.0.2, it throws error for deploying sapr3-service.xml as root element not found.

            Infact, i m getting error for all *-servce.xml which was by default present in deploy driectory.

            Error is noClassDefFoundError

            I am using the same servce.xml which u have sent to me in mail and is available in CVS.

            How to go about it.???

            Thanks
            Mahesh
