SAP Gateway

Purpose

The SAP Gateway carries out CPI-C services within the R/3 world.

The SAP Gateway consists of several processes. In R/3, one SAP Gateway is started for each Application Server (from Release 2.1I).

For certain constellations, an SAP Gateway comes into use as a separately installed R/3 instance or outside an R/3 System:

Installation:
You should install the SAP Gateway components in the same way as you install all other SAP programs, i.e. in the executable files directory of the corresponding system tree.

CPI-C services can be subdivided according to their implementation:

CPI-C services can be used either in the ABAP program or for the external programs via the interfaces.
