Data Federator and ERP Connector (Prototype)

Dear Experts,

when connecting with Data Federator to a ERP System the installation of the ERP Connector (Prototype) is necessary.

Is there an official way to connect to a ERP System with Data Federator without using a Prototype which is not supported?

Is there a newer version of this prototype which is now officially available?

A link to the document which describes the ERP Connector Prototype

[original link is broken]

Thanks a lot

Daniel

    Hi,

    please explain what type of ERP object (ABAP function, SAP Query or Infoset) you want to connect to.

    For example you can connect DF to any ABAP function w/o the connector package:

    - Create an RFC wrapper around the function, if it's not already RFC-enabled

    - Generate a WebService wrapper around the RFC wrapper

    - Connect DF to this Web Service using the DF Web Service adaptor

    PS: If the ABAP function has tables as import parameters then neither the DF web service adaptor nor the connector package are suitable. Workaround using BW:

    - Create a BW extractor around the function

    - Create a BW virtual provider on top of this datasource

    - Connect DF to the BW virtual provider using the DF BW adptor

    Hi Daniel,

    I couldn't find a non prototype version of the Data Federator to SAP ERP JCO connector on the SAP Support side. The prototype is over a year old and a DF release has occured since it came out but I haven't seen anything about a non-prototype connection. It'd be nice since this would be a useful use case for Data Federator.

    I'm asking SAP but haven't gotten a response yet.

    Edit: For DF questions, you'd probably have somewhat more luck at the "Data Integration and Quality Management Forum"

    Thanks,

    Kerby
