Working with External DB and SQLJ


I came across the following statement in an official SAP article:"You can use the SQLJ API if you store application data in the system database schema of SAP NetWeaver Application Server Java only. "

Article: Working with external Databases , Author:Katarzyna Fecht.

My Question: I am using an external DB but it is identical to the installed system database. Can I still use SQLJ in my application to access data from this particular external DB.


Best Regards

    • Hi MK,

      No, maybe I didn't express it precisely 😊

      It's not about the DB or its vendor, it's about the DB <b>schema</b>.

      You can of course reuse the system JDBC driver to create a DS to this external DB, however it cannot be Open SQL (Open SQL is available <b>only</b> with the system DB <b>schema</b>)and therefore usage of SQLJ is not possible with it.

      Hope it makes more sense now!
