How to connect to SAP Database from a Adobe flex application?

Hi

I am an intern currently working on designing an Adobe flex interface that interacts with an SAP Database, although im torn between methods of implementing the most efficient connection without over-complicating the problem. I believe the best approach would be to use SAPJCo but am unfamiliar with how to approach this method and am finding it hard to get detailed documentation or code examples which show connecting to a Database. Another approach would be using a web service but my problems again arise with my lack of knowledge to connect to the Database.

Any advice or help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Jonny

    Hi Jonathan.

    I believe webservice is the best approach, steps to create webservice is very simple.

    1. create a webservice from a standard rfc or bapi.

    2. release and activate webservice.

    3. it will generate wsdl file which can be used in flex environment.

    creating webservice.
