Messages in RFC Processing

As long as no list or dialog processing takes place during the processing of a function module called up using the RFC interface, messages behave as follows:

  • Messages of types "I", "S", and "W" are ignored.
  • Messages of types "A", "E", and "X" cause processing to terminated, followed by a database rollback. In the calling program, the classic exception SYSTEM_FAILURE is raised.

If dialog processing or list processing takes place during RFC processing, any messages sent behave as described there.

Other versions: 7.31 | 7.40 | 7.54


If a message of type "E" is sent in a remote-enabled function module, note that it depends on the type of call whether a database rollback will occur or not. If the call does not take place using the RFC interface, a database rollback usually does not occur.
