How to obtain the SAP JCo library?

This article explains how to obtain the SAP Java Connector library (SAP JCo) from the SAP marketplace.

To communicate with the SAP server, the SAP Java Connector (SAP JCo) is required. For legal reasons, zapliance is not allowed to make the library available. But every customer of SAP can download the library free of charge in the marketplace as follows:

  1. Browse the SAP marketplace (https://support.sap.com/en/product/connectors/jco.html).
    You require an S-User Account.Please give us a call or send us an email if you struggle to get JCo Library!
  2. Look for the section "Download SAP Java Connector 3.0 SDK".
    1. Choose SAP JCo for Microsoft Windows and Windows Server 64-bit x86
      (JCo 64-bit, Release 3.0.10 or newer).
    2. Note: JCo version 3.1.x in the section "Download SAP Java Connector 3.1 SDK" does not work correctly at the moment.
  3. Log into the marketplace using your log-in details.
  4. After downloading, you have to upload the library (zip file) in zap Audit when asked to.

    Note: only the 64-bit x86 version is working, not the 32-bit version!




    Now you can test the connection by clicking "Start connection test"


    The test only checks if a server responds to the specified connection data.
