Simulation of a SAP system for testing

We want to test(develope) a Service which gets “incomming” IDOC’s from the SAP-System (SAP-Listener). How can I simulate the sending, I don’t want to use the SAP-System during the development?

Any suggestions?


There is a HTML file to simulate an IDOC submission to the Partner Manager that comes bundled in the SAP Adapter. The only catch is that the IDOC needs to be in XML so watch out if your data contains &,; ', "… These need to be excaped correctly when converted to XML.

The file is located in the SAP adapter’s “pub” directory and is called “Submit_IDocXML.html”. I use it all the time to test flows without actually generating IDOCs from SAP.
