Android application for R3 with RFC

Hi gurus,

I need to know if there is an RFC for developing android application for communicating with R3 systems, like JCO connector.

In case there isn't, Is there a way to use JCO connector as a library for android?

Thank you very much,

AW

    Hi Alejandro,

    I think in preference to the use of older technologies such as JCo and RFC,, perhaps you should instead consider exposing function modules and BAPIs using RESTful APIs? See this blog as an example ... /people/michael.hardenbol/blog/2010/12/07/android-and-restful-web-service-instead-of-soap .

    Hi John,

    Thank you for your reply.

    It seems to be the way to get communicated with SAP from android.

    By the way, I try the suggested blog using the same code in my Eclipse framework with the Android SDK. But when I run the code emulator gives me the IOException exception. That's curious because if I test the same url on the emulator's browser I can connect successfully!

    Any idea?

    Best regards,

    AW

    Hi John,

    I fixed my issue by changing the Android Manifest permissions.

    Thank you very much.
