The TREX Java client (part of the J2EE Engine) accesses the TREX functions using the TREX Web server. Communication between the TREX Java client and the TREX Web server takes place using HTTP or HTTPS and XML. The TREX name server offers a watchdog function that serves to monitor the active TREX servers. The watchdog regulularly checks whether the active TREX servers (in this case, the TREX Web server) can still be reached, The name server is then able to recognize the Web server and forward its address on request. If the TREX Java client and TREX Web server are to communicate using HTTPS protocol, you have to configure the TREX name server for secure communication with the TREX Web server.
You have installed and configured the SAP cryptography tool SAPGENPSE on the host on which the TREX preprocessor is running.
