RFC Exceptions

For the external function call, you can use the addition EXCEPTIONS of the statement CALL FUNCTION - RFC (RFC variants) to assign return values to the exceptions defined in the interface of the called function module. Class-based exceptions cannot be propagated to the caller from a remotely-called function module, and have the effect of an exception that cannot be processed.

In addition to the exceptions defined in the interface of the called function module, an external function call may trigger the following predefined exceptions:

·        The exception SYSTEM_FAILURE occurs if a runtime error arises during execution of the remotely-called function module.

·        The exception COMMUNICATION_FAILURE occurs if the connection cannot be made to the partner system, or if the connection is broken during communication.

 We strongly recommend that you assign a return value to these two exceptions for each RFC, and that you process these, otherwise a runtime error may occur in the exception situations described.
