Background documentationSAP NetWeaver Application Server as a Web Client Locate this document in the navigation structure


If the AS ABAP is used as a Web client, the running ABAP program creates HTTP requests, sends them to a Web server, and waits for the response from the Web server.

The graphic below illustrates the process.

This graphic is explained in the accompanying text.

The work process writes the data to be processed into a memory pipe (MPI) and sends the request to the ICM via a network connection, using TCP/IP. The ICM then processes the data it receives from the MPI and writes a response back into the MPI. The ICF process is described in detail in the interaction model section.
