Connecting to the Ge neric Object Services

ArchiveLink functions starting from business objects implemented in SAP applications,
regardless of the application. The Generic Object Services integrate these functions into all

• Assigning an Object the Bar Code of a Document [Page 54]

To go to the Generic Object Services from the application document, choose the central
menu path System → Object Services.

Integrating the Document Viewer in Control
The Document Viewer can be displayed in the control Dialog Box Container. This can be
integrated into an SAP screen, or you can incorporate it in the user interface of your

Displaying documents in the SAP screen has the following advantages:

• Document display can be directly integrated into the transaction where application
documents are entered. Two areas are displayed on the screen: On one side, the input
template for the application document, and on the other side, the document containing
the data to be entered in the application document.

• The space in the Document Viewer normally reserved for menus and icons is also used
for displaying the document.

• The documents are closed automatically when the user leaves the transaction.
You can decide whether document display is integrated into the application document
transaction, or whether documents are displayed in a separate session. ArchiveLink provides
methods for displaying in control.

For more information, see the online documentation for the class

If you do not implement display in control, the Document Viewer is always called in a new
session. In this case, you can call the Document Viewer either in control or not. You make
this selection in Customizing. Choose the following in the Implementation Guide (IMG): SAP
Web Application Server → Basis Services → ArchiveLink → Front End Communication
Customizing → Make Storage and Display Settings.
