Is it advisable to connect SMP with a SAP backend using only Integration Gateway?

Hello dear experts,

Could you please help me with the next architectural doubt?

Exist any way to connect SMP with a SAP backend without use SAP Gateway?. For instance generating SOAP web services and consuming them with Integration Gateway, and if it’s posible, is this advisable?.

The question emerge reading the SAP Press Book "SAP Gateway and OData (Second Edition)" that in the page 59 says that SMP Integration Gateway is just "SAP Gateway (Java)", and that in some scenarios may be beneficial to remove the need of a separate gateway hub server. But, the mentioned scenarios are not specified.

Before the mentioned reading, I always had in mind the usual architecture recomendation, like in the next picture.

Best Regards,

    Yeah it is possible and I do not see an issue in it. In the above architectural diagram, 'ODC via HTTP' is referring to this.

      Hi Krishna, thanks's for your answer.

      But "ODC via HTTP" means to develop the services using "SAP Gateway Backend Enablement" rigth? The doubt is, when to use only "Integration Gateway" without any "SAP Gateway" component at all?

      Also, it would be great to know when is better have only "Integration Gateway" eliminating the need of a "Gateway Hub" server, knowing some Advantages and Disadvantages (In example ODC does not support "Deep insert").

      Best Regards.
