Connection to the Application (Connectivity)Locate this document in the navigation structure


TREX can communicate with the application using it by means of an HTTP connection or an RFC connection:

  • ABAP application accesses TREX by means of an ABAP client (RFC connection)

    As a rule, ABAP applications communicate with the TREX servers through the TREX ABAP client using the RFC/SNC protocol. Communication takes place using an Gateway and an RFC server.

  • Java application accesses TREX by means of a Java client (HTTP connection)

    As a rule, Java applications communicate with the TREX servers by means of the TREX Java client using the HTTP or HTTPS protocol. This communication takes place using a Web server that is enhanced with TREX-specific functions.

Initial TREX Basic Configuration

For the initial connection of TREX to the application using TREX, perform the steps described under TREX Post-Installation Configuration and Connecting TREX with an Application immediately after installation.


You work through these and further configuration steps for connecting to the application using TREX using the functions in the TREX admin tool (standalone).

The following functions are available in the Start of the navigation path Landscape Next navigation step Connectivity End of the navigation path area:
