There are three things that are important when you build a program that uses Semantic Layer SDK.
- You need to include sl_sdk.jar to the class path.
- You need to use 32 bit java
- The system property businessobjects.connectivity.directory should be set to the connection server folder
-Dbusinessobjects.connectivity.directory="C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\dataAccess\connectionServer"
- The system variable PATH should be set to win32_x86
C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP BusinessObjects\SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 4.0\win32_x86
It is quite easy to see if sl_sdk.jar is included, your program will fail quickly with NoClassDefFoundError. It might be not so obvious with the other three. The following code may help you to check them:
System.out.println("java = " + System.getProperty("java.version") + ", " + System.getProperty("sun.arch.data.model") + " bit"); System.out.println("path = " + System.getenv("PATH")); System.out.println("businessobjects.connectivity.directory = " + System.getProperty("businessobjects.connectivity.directory"));
