Sap Java Deployment Logs

We will have a guide on viewing the SAP Java deployment logs. But, before that, we will have a brief explanation of what SAP and JAVA are.

What is SAP?

SAP is an acronym for Systems, Applications, and Products in Data Processing. It is a corporate software suite that allows enterprise-wide information access, security, and business transactions.

What is JAVA?

Java is a programming language that is developed by Sun Microsystems. It allows the user to write programs that can run on any platform or operating system without the need for recompilation.

The SAP Java deployment logs allow you to know if the code has been deployed successfully or not. It also helps you know if it has been used or not. You can view it in various ways. Like Flat files, Text files, and XML files.

So now that we have brief details about the SAP and JAVA, we process the deployment logs.

Viewing Sap Java Deployment

SAP presents several ways to view the Java deployment log but the easiest way is to use transaction SE80. The other is SAPGUI.

To view the log in SE80,

Log in to SAP. Select System Logistics (GL). Go to Transaction SE80 and select Java Deployment Logs. Now you can view all the deployment logs on a summary page or you can view them by clicking on a specific one like SE80-JAVA-DEPLOYMENT-1.

To view the log in SAP GUI,

Go to transaction SE80. Click on Java Deployment Logs at the bottom of the page. Select the specific log that you want to see from System Logistics (GL) -> Java Deployment Logs -> (Enter Transaction ID) -> Java Deployment Logs.

That’s it! This is how you will be able to view your SAP Java deployment logs on both platforms, i.e., CLI and GUI.

There are various methods to view the deployment logs. The most common method is using the SAPGUI.

You can view it by logging in to eXtreme Download Manager (DXM). Also, you can view it in the Windows command prompt or Linux. So let’s begin.

To view the deployment logs, you have to navigate to DXM -> SAP -> Java -> Deployment Logs. You can see that there are two predefined views. You can choose either of them and view it.

The flat file view is more simple than the text file. But the text file is more detailed and easy to understand than the flat file.

The text file also uses more space than a flat-file.

Viewing Sap Java Deployment Logs In DXM

The next step is to open Deployment Logs in DXM. You can do this by navigating to DXM -> SAP -> Java -> Deployment Logs. Now that you have opened Deployment Logs, you can see there are two options for viewing it:

  • Flat file and
  • Text File.

We will be discussing both of them in this article:

Flat File

A flat File is the simpler form of viewing the deployment log files. It uses less space than a text file and is easier to read than a text file. If you select this option. Then you will be able to see a line with three columns;

  • Date,
  • MACHINE, and
  • Status.

The following image shows an example:

Text File – Unlike flat files, this format allows users to see detailed information about the code deployment process. Like date of execution, time is taken for execution, etc

If you choose this option then it will show all of this data in a table.
