    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

    Joerg

    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
