Urgent: Data from external website

Hi All,

I have posted this same question earlier also but at that time, it was not as urgent as it is now, i want to know how can i get data from an external website, i have netweaver Studio , WebAS 6.40 installed, R/3 is ECC 5.0.

I want the data which is entered in that website to be continuously sent back to R/3 and i will schedule batch jobs to process those data according to its priority and content.

Is it at all possible with the products that i have? Or do i have to install any other product. If yes, then what is that? and how to configure?

Regards

Siddhartha Sengupta

    Hi Sid,

    of course this is possible. How else could the WAS consume a web service. 😊

    Look at this examplehttp://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/1f/93163f9959a808e10000000a114084/frameset.htm">example> in SAP Help.

    Cheers

    • Hi Sid,

      the example code shows how you can perform a HTTP request from an ABAP program.

      Therefore your ABAP program can send a HTTP request to your web server and retrieve the HTTP response payload and process it. If the response is XML you can use the iXML library to parse it, but if it is HTML you will probably need to use string handling to extract the required data.

      Cheers

    SAP WAS supports a number of ways to get data from external sources - but you will need code at the external source to supply the data in a format suitable for the input mechanism you choose.

    Incoming data can be Web Service called from the web page or SAP can read a Web service supplied by the page. Look in SDN Blogs for lots of examples of how to do this this way or using many other mechanisms (HTTP, JCO, etc - take a look in the sap-->bc tree in transaction SICF for lots of ideas of possibilities).

    You could also have the web page hosted by SAP as a BSP or WEB Dynpro page. Again - see SDN Blogs for examples.
