Hello Experts,

I am SAPUI5 developer and currently working on Vessel Tracking scenario. We have created one dashboard application through which the temp and pressure of the container and current location and other details of the vessel can be tracked. We are using the JSON data and whatever data we could find on the internet. Through some homework,I found that SAP already has Event Management module which provides the container tracking solution. I would like to know about the tables name so that we can integrate our application with SAP with real data. Can someone provide the table names which we can use.

Hi Mayank,

You wouldn't access SAP tables directly if you are looking for data stored there for the container tracking scenario. You would build your application that reads SAP data using the BAPI called /SAPTRX/BAPI_EH_GET_DATA_GEN. In this BAPI you would pass in your selection parameters via the table SELECTIONFIELDS and you get the results in several internal tables such as EVENTHANDLERHEADERS, EVENTMSGS and CONTROLPARAMETERS. These are not easily parsed without knowing the scenario you are working and the way the implementation is done as the values sent in and subsequently retrieved may differ greatly between each implementation. If you really want your application to be flexible then you will need some sort of configurable mapping between SAP EM "fields" and your application's fields. This is not a trivial matter for answer in a blog but rather a short engagement that is needed.

Let me know if you need anything else. All the best.
