Multithread DI API.


Is the DI API Multithread safe?

I have to generate hundreads of orders and hundred of deliveryNotes programatically, but the time each document object takes to save the data into the database is hugh, because it makes several round trips to the DB, in the visinity of 0.5 to 1 minute for each document. Because my total time is the accomulative round trip time, i have only one solution, to generate one thread for each document in witch I will have two steps:

1º add all the lines in a cycle.

2º add the document (header)

Note: The is a litle problem of getting all the numbers of the documents generated because the interface only get's the last document generated, but I can work around it.

The problem is to know if DI API is thread Safe?

Best regards,

Carlos Goetz

    Hi Carlos,

    If speed is of great importance, consider going to a 64Bit Windows and SQL server, we di some test for a customer and has DI API improvements up to 80%.(creating a Goods Issue and Goods Receipt, and Journal Entry and Stock Transfer went from 10 seconds down to 2 seconds).

    going to 64bit will also improved the speed of the SBO Client.

    ps. The DI API is thread safe, but you have the possibility of lock (error -2038).

    i think DIAPI ist Multithread safe, but you will have no real advantage.

    because when one thread adds a big document the sap is anyway "frozen".

    so the second thread can create the document but the add will anyway happen sequently.
