SAP BW Web API

I have been reading documentation and playing with the SAP interface and the BW WAD interface.

I have a few questions.

There is a lot of reference to the Web API but does not cover how to connect to this API and what are the methods associated with it. Do you know where I can find that information ? I have been on the SAP help site and have not seen that info.

There is also a lot tutorials that reference accessing / redirecting to another HTML /web based application. Also, I have seen where the data can be exported in an XML format after it is executed.

What I was wondering is if we can make a direct call from a .NET web application to a query that lives in the SAP/BW infrastructure

    Hi,

    this will be more easy with BW 3.5. There you can use the Web Service for QueryView data.

    For release < BW 3.5 theres the XMLA web service (which requries MDX knowledge)
