From my previous posting, you have already learned how to install SAPGUI for Java on Linux and also how to configure them so you can connect and log on to SAP.
Now, I’ll explain to how to uninstall/remove SAPGUI for Java from your Linux system.
Using root user, type this command :
# java -jar PlatinGUI-Platform-Version-.jar uninstall
You can try it. Any comment and suggestion are welcome.
SAP ERP are 3-tiered application. SAP software consist of Database Server, Application Server, and Client program. Database server hold all data and information from user, company data, transaction data, log, etc. Application program responsible to process all client request and route to database server to request data, and then process data presentation before send them to client program. SAP client program which is installed on user PC is named as SAPGUI. Also called SAPLogon.
SAP has provide 3 type of SAPGUI which are :
- SAPGUI for Windows – SAPGUI for Windows is SAPGUI which is installed on Microsoft Windows. According to SAP, this is the best SAPGUI to access all SAP ERP function and tcode. SAP Developer (also called ABAP-er) use this SAPGUI to create all ABAP customer specific program. This SAPGUI can create ALV list, SMARTFORMS, SMARTSTYLES, ABAP OBJECT, etc. The latest SAPGUI for WIndows version 7.10. From my previous post, SAP have already removed this stuff from FTP server so if you want to get it, you need SAP Service Marketplace user ID to download or orde the DVD.
- SAPGUI for Java – SAPGUI for Java are another SAPGUI program. SAP provide SAPGUI for Java for several operating system including Microsoft Windows, Linux, Mac, IBM AIX, HP HP-UX, and SUN Solaris. Prerequirement for this software are your system need to be installed with SUN Java (minimumly version 1.5.0). SAPGUI for Java also have some limitation compared with SAPGUI for Windows. You cannot create SMARTFORMS, SMARTSTYLES using this SAPGUI. You also cannot use Office-integration feature. The latest SAPGUI for Java version are 7.10 rev 6. You still can download this SAPGUI from FTP server (using anonymous access).
- SAPGUI for HTML – This is the last type SAPGUI for HTML. It’s the only one that doesn’t need to be installed because almost every operating system has web browser. The latest mySAP ERP only need to be config so it can be accessed via web.
Ok, that’s all for now. Next time, I’ll explain the detailed about each SAPGUI.
My deepest regret that I have to do this in order to support me maintaining this blog since I have to maintain my internet connection. I need to charge to you if you want to get this simple information.
I am offering paid support to Basis who want to implement Linux Migration on workstation so that by using SAPGUI for Java on Linux can print smoothly as well as Windows-based SAPGUI client. On SAPGUI for Windows, you can easily print SAP documents. But you can’t do that when you’re using SAPGUI for Java on Linux.
If you are interested in this solution, please call me on YM : devratt.
Today I’ll show you how to uninstall old SAPGUI for Java version. To install newer version of SAPGUI for Java, you can check my previuous posting. On this posting, i am going to show you how to uninstall the old version of your SAPGUI for Java.
Coz I use root level to install SAPGUI for Java, so I need to switch my user (ardhian) to my root user :
ardhian@edp-ardhian:~$ su –
edp-ardhian:~ # java -jar PlatinGUI-Linux-710r4.jar uninstall
This last command will uninstall my old (SAPGUI for Java version 7.10rev4) version. Just simple command. I hope this could help you.
SAP had released the latest SAPGUI for Java. It has 7.10 version. As this 2007, SAPGUI for Java had been improved. Currently, SAPGUI for Java 7.10 had significant update including input history capability had been integrated.
For most SAP End User, this feature (Input History) was very helpful since it’s only available on SAPGUI for Windows. I had been try and test it on my several SAP end user and they said “its awesome”, “very helpful”, etc.
For me as SAP Basis, it’s time for SAP to accelerate this SAPGUI development and improvement because of its multiplatform. Almost all OS user could use it from Windows, Linux, Solaris, AIX, HP-UX, and Mac OS X.
Another SAPGUI for Java feature that had been amazed me is its capability to use frontend printing. Not “F” type as you thought, but “G” access method. If you’re SAP using Basis release 620, just check your SPAM level using SPAM tcode. If you had minimumly on level 52, then you could use this access method (“G”).
Also, i had just mentioned about my new SAPGUI for Java on Linux deployment. I used to deploy SAPGUI for Java on Linux manually. But starting now, I am using remotely and silently method. Its very simple and helpful for such “lazy Basis” like me :D.
Prepare your SAPGUI for Java installer on remote machine. Then, create a simple responfile like this sample on the same directory as your SAPGUI for Java installer :
# Example of a typical installation response file # suppress user interaction disableui=true # install to the default path installpath=default # reinstall gui if already present reinstall=true
And you just type this command on your console :
#java -jar PlatinGUI-Linux-710.jar -i[name_of_your_responfile]
Its very simple, isn’t it ? Happy deploying !! Let me know if you have question.
