I am working on the integration aspect of ARIS with SAP Solution Manager. While doing 'transfer project' during the initial synch process I am getting an error as shown in the attached image. Unable to find sapjco3.jar. I downloaded the file form the SAP service market place. And followed the instructions mentioned in the help topics. The JCO and JRE on teh system are 64 bit as is the Windows. Place the '.dll' extention file in the windows >> system32 directory. Placed the '.jar' extension file in the ARIS >> localserver > lib directory as is mentioned in the help topics. Still the problem is unresolved. I still get the same error.

Can anybody please advise on what am I not doing to proceed properly on this.

Thanks and Regards,

Dear Vaibhav,

Did you place sapjco3.jar also in the ARIS client's folder C:\ARIS9\client\lib and not only to the server (C:\ARIS9\LOCALSERVER\bin\work\work_abs_local\base\webapps\abs\WEB-I NF\lib)?

You can verify that SAP JCo has been properly added by calling it from a command line:

  • Verify SAP JCo installation for ARIS LOCAL server:
    C:\ARIS9\server\jre\bin\java.exe -jar C:\ARIS9\server\bin\work\work_abs_local\base\webapps\abs\WEB-INF\lib\sapjco3.jar
  • Verify SAP JCo installation for installed ARIS client:
    C:\ARIS9\client\jre\bin\java.exe -jar C:\ARIS9\client\lib\sapjco3.jar
  • In case of installed ARIS Design/Connect Server, verify SAP JCo installation for downloadable ARIS client:
    C:\ARIS9\client\jre\bin\java.exe -jar C:\ARIS9\server\bin\work\work_abs_s\base\webapps\abs\downloadClient\lib\sapjco3.jar

Has the problem been solved Vaibhav?

Hi Anshul.

I contacted the Software AG team.

They gave a solution to that. What you need to do is that even if your windows is 64 bit, you have to download the sapjco3.dll file for 32 bit windows too. This .dll file needs to be placed in C: >> Windows >> syswow64 folder. The software AG person herself said that the solution sounds a bit odd but it actually works. 

Thanks and Regards,
