I need to develop a software as external java client (application, not in the browser) which must be able to use SAP database tables and BAPIs. The software should be started out of the SAPGui with a connection against SAP already. The customer mentioned something like "should use the J2EE"...
Where can I find help/documentation for this issue how to develop such a program/about possible technologies?
Can I develop a stand-alone java program with the NetWeaver developer studio or only web dynpros?
Can I use normal SQL/Open SQL to access the tables with java or do I have to use some BAPIs to get the data?
