Viewing J2EE to SAP R3 Remote Calls

The Remote Function Call (RFC) protocol in SAP allows communication to take place between SAP J2EE and SAP R3 environments. When remote calls take place between SAP J2EE and SAP R3 environments, Analysis displays information about the RFC functions, including the name of each function.

You view information about RFC functions by breaking down the SAP R3 layer. You can view the RFC function information in a graph display or in the Chain Of Calls window.
