- Users who wish to run SAP Connectivity sample need to have a login to SAP server and to do this they need to install SAPGUI to login to SAP server.
The SAPGUI that needs to be installed is "SAP - SAPGUI 7.10+Add-ons with SAPLOGON Customizer"
- Once SAPGUI is installed open the connection and add the login details as follows:
Click on SAP LOGON select Systems tab and click on ‘new item’ then press ‘Next’ to go to the following screen and fill in the SAP server details
Save this setting and now we are ready to logon to the SAP Server.

The JCo libraries and JAR files is available at the following location
Users need to have valid user id and password to access the above files.
