Data Integration with asp Web application

Hi

I am currently at the research stage of a new asp web application which will use data from the users SAP windows application and integrate it with our online database.

I am not familiar with any SAP applications and would appreciate any help, what I want to know is:

1. Is this possible

2. Is there an export facility in SAP

3. Any other suggestions you may have

Thanks, I am really stuck on this one and would appreciate any feedback.

    Hi Richard,

    could you please provide some more information? What SAP application do you want to connect to?

    Usually you can access SAP applications via standard interfaces which are called BAPIs or RFCs. Therefore you would need to talk to the SAP system administrator. He or she can point you to the right interfaces.

    Many greetings

    Ivo

    Hello Richard,

    if your Web application is written using ASP.NET, one possibility is to use SAP .NET Connector, that can be downloaded from service.sap.com/connectors.

    Note that SAP is not to be regarded as a database, but an application server. You call functions fromn the SAP system or your SAP system calls function from you .NET application.

    Included with the SAP .NET Connector is an interactive demonstration that shows how to call a function that returns a customer list and diplays it on a ASP.NET page.

    Hope that helps,

    Reiner.

    Hi Richard,

    at least I can tell you the way to go. I have seen some nice .NET support we are currently developing, btu that is not out yet (As the Java community is waiting for 6.40...). But at least I can tell you what the buzzword is you should looking for: It is .net connector for Web AS. Best would be to ask your SAP Admins about this.

    Regards,

    Benny
