Liquid UI - WS Reference Library

5.1 Configuring Liquid UI SDK


After installing SDK, you need to configure the SDK environment to work on the SAP customizations. Follow below steps to configure Liquid UI SDK:

1. guixt.sjs
2. sapproxy.ini
3. Restart Liquid UI Server
4. Configuring SAP GUI
5. Configuring Mobile Devices

These files are located in your local drive --> Liquid UI SDK --> Liquid UI Server

The path would vary depending upon the SDK installation. For example:

For 64 bit OS: C:\Program Files (x86)\Liquid UI SDK\LUI Server
For 32 bit OS: C:\Program Files\Liquid UI SDK\LUI Server


1. guixt.sjs

The settings of Liquid UI SDK in a local implementation is present in the guixt.sjs file. The WS scripts that you create to customize SAP screens/transaction, needs to be saved in a specific accessible folder. The SDK setup, after installation, creates the following folder on your computer:

C:\LiquidUI\Scripts

If you intend to use a different folder to store your scripts, then ensure that you mention the path of the scripts folder in the guixt.sjs file. The configuration file includes different parameters, as shown below:

 
//WS Configuration File 
directory1 = "C:\\LiquidUI\\Scripts";
OPENCONSOLE 	= 	0x00008000;
HIDECONSOLE 	= 	0x00000000;
TRACEFLAGS = OPENCONSOLE;
//TRACEFLAGS = HIDECONSOLE;

The configuration parameters are defined as follows:

Directory1 Specifies the path for the WS scripts
OPENCONSOLE Enables to view the output in the console mode
HIDECONSOLE Disables the console mode output
TRACEFLAGS Traceflags are used for developers debugging. It can be set to either Openconsole or Hideconsole


2. sapproxy.ini

After installing the SDK, the Liquid UI Server gets installed on your computer. Based on the operating system setup (32bit/64bit), the server installation is in the path:

C:\Program Files\Liquid UI SDK\LUI Server (or C:\Program Files (x86)\Liquid UI SDK)\LUI Server.

In the LUI Server folder, you will need to configure the sapproxy.ini file, based on your SAP environment. The SAPProxy.ini file is where the you will define the server configuration parameters. The sapproxy.ini file will appear as shown below:

 

 

[control]
proxycount=1
[Proxy1]
ListenPort=3210
TargetServer=YOURSAPSERVER
TargetServerPort=3200
GuiXT = 10

The Server configuration parameters are defined as follows:

proxycount Enter the number of connection between SAP Server and Liquid UI Server.
ListenPort Enter the port number of the Liquid UI Server to accept connections.
Note: You must use only port numbers that start with 32. (32xx series)
TargetServer Specify the name or IP address of the SAP application server.
TargetServerPort Specify the port number of the SAP Server to which Liquid UI Server connects
GuiXT
  • Enter 10 to load customized SAP scripts.
  • Enter 0 to load default SAP scripts.


3. Restart Liquid UI Server

SDK installation also adds the batch files to start and stop the Liquid UI Server. Instead of managing the server manually, you can add the Liquid UI Server as a windows service, so that the server starts automatically.


4. Configuring SAP GUI

After installing Liquid UI SDK, you can view default Liquid UI SDK connection created on your SAPGUI

To start working with Liquid UI SDK, you need to configure Liquid UI Server on SAP Logon as follows:

  1. Open your SAP logon window.
     
  2. On the SAP logon window, right click on Connection folder to add connection parameters. Select Add New Entry.
     
  3. Create New System Entry window appears. Click Next.
     
  4. Fill out your Liquid UI Server information in the form and click OK.
    • Connection Type - Select Custom Application Server
    • Application Server - localhost (if on network machine, IP address)
    • Instance Number - 10 (to enable WS scripts to customize SAP)
    • System ID - The system id of your SAP server
     
  5. Click OK. Then it will ask to choose the network settings. Select the activate secure network communication and click Next.
     
  6. Select the preferred language from the Language dropdownlist and click Finish.
     
  7. Click OK. The server connection appears in the list of connections on your SAP logon pad.
