Connecting my Java or ideally nodeJS application to ABAP on Cloud Foundry

Hi all,

I was wondering is there a way to connect my application (ideally nodeJS) on CF to ABAP system , I see that RFC is not supported on CF. Is there anything I can do to call function on On-Premise system?

Or is there better/modern way even without using RFC at all?

Many thanks

Anton

    Hi Anton,

    the best way to connect your ABAP System with the Cloud Platform is the SAP Cloud Connector.

    Broadly speaking: You can create a destination (representation of your ABAP System) in the Cloud Cockpit and use this destination to from any application running in the cloud foundry env.

    I hope this helps you.

    Regards,

    Marius

    Hi Marius,

    Unfortunately RFCs are not supported on CF so far.

    https://help.sap.com/viewer/cca91383641e40ffbe03bdc78f00f681/Cloud/en-US/e54cc8fbbb571014beb5caaf6aa31280.html

    Even if RFC will be there, I am not sure I can do RFC from Nodejs. I saw something like https://github.com/SAP/node-rfc but it did not work for me and looks like discontinued.

    I was wondering what good options are for exposing some logic in ABAP and consume in e.g. nodejs app.

    I saw there are ABAP web services but it looks also not that good with alls those wsdls.

    Many thanks

    Anton
