What is the official SAP roadmap for the Java BI Platform SDK? I am concerned that is being abandoned prior to the REST API being a 100% functional replacement.

Thank you, Bharath. How did you find that page? It's newer than what's published on the Javadocs index, and the API reference link in the BI4.2 product page is dead.

That's where I went. I just get an empty page that says "We're sorry, but this content is not accessible."

Looks like bug.

Remove "DRAFT" in URL and try.

Hi Joe Peters ,

Please try now to access API reference from below link and share the result. https://help.sap.com/viewer/product/SAP_BUSINESSOBJECTS_BUSINESS_INTELLIGENCE_PLATFORM/

No longer pointing to a "DRAFT" page, but still producing the same "We're sorry" message:

https://help.sap.com/http.svc/rc/7adfc93c56564bb0bade737ea8a3a61f/4.2.4/en-US/index.html

We're sorry, but this content is not accessible.

Hi Joe,

Are you logged onto the help portal when you get that message?
You were able to access the link previously when manually removing DRAFT from the URL but now it is not working for you. I just want to make sure that you have the problem when logged onto the help portal as well before trying to get it fixed.

The majority of the other Developer documents require a logon (padlock icon beside the title) but this API guide does not have that icon so I'm not sure if it should require a logon or not.

Hi, Dan.

Yes, I'm logged in. My name appears if I hover over the icon at the top-right of the screen.

You are right. REST APIs are not 100% replacement.

But REST is also depending JAVA BI Platform SDK (So any APIs which are not in JAVA SDK will be delivered first than REST APIs).

Java SDK also enhanced for all the features delivered in last SPs.

Thank you. So you are saying that SAP is officially supporting the Java Platform SDK for the foreseeable future?

"So any APIs which are not in JAVA SDK will be delivered first than REST APIs ... Java SDK also enhanced for all the features delivered in last SPs"

That is not entirely true from what I am seeing. Interfaces for new features like Recycle Bins, Shared Elements, and DSL Universes are not present in the BI4.2 Javadocs. Yet there is support for all of them via REST.

Sorry. I didn't observe java docs.

But for Recycle Bins Interfaces are available in JAVA SDK.(IRecycleBinObject , IRecycleBinObjectBase)

Sorry for the late reply. I forgot that I need to follow my own questions....

Yes, there are interfaces for Recycle Bin and DSL Universes, but there is no documentation. That is why I'm questioning if the Java SDK is continuing to be actively supported.

There is no support for Shared Elements anywhere in the Java SDK that I can see.
