Can I use PDK on a non SAP Platform

Hi Everyone,

We have SAP ECC available with us with certain modules. I am not too sure which ones. Now, we are brainstorming if we can develop a plain normal web application using JSP/Servlets but connect to SAP ECC using JCO protocol. We will import the netweaver PDK jar files in our plain web application in the lib folder and that application will be deployed on Apache Tomcat 6.0 web server. Other than these jar files they wont be any other SAP libraries on this tomcat server.

Is this a feasible approach? Does anyone have any experience on such a kind of application? Are there any kind of documentation that we can use?

If this is not a feasible approach, does anyone know what is the correct way of going about it without the JCO connectors. Do I need to expose the exisiting ECC functionality using web services and then call those web services from the tomcat web application.

Your insight will be of great help.

Nikhil

    Hi,

    I think that this would be the more sensible choice.

    Keeep RFC and JCO for SAP client products.

    Use non propriatary standards for non SAP tools.

    You may have a legal problem using the PDK with Tomcat ?

    This is just my opinion.

    Regards,
