ABAP APIs / Java APIs (MDM Extraction)

Hi All,

If I have to extract data out of MDM Repository without using the MDM Syndication functionality, How can I do that?

I know there is something called ABAP APIs / Java APIs. Can this ABAP/Java APIs be used to extract data out of MDM Repositories?

If yes, where exactly are these ABAP/Java programs written? In MDM server? Or Portal server?

Thanks,

    • Hi.

      Software / Tools you need to write Java API's

      1. Any Java Developer Studio or Netweaver Developer Studio + Java SDK

      2. If you are designing a web-application then you need a webserver(like Java WAS, Apache etc)

      3. MDM Java API Jars: To be referenced in the developer studio to write code

      4. MDM Java Connector: To be deployed in the webserver in case of web-application

      Regards

    yes you can use WS or APIs to fetch records.

    for eg . u can use Web Service MDMSearchRecords that fetches multiple records in an array of MDMRecord.

    then what you want to do with that data is ur choice.

    on ur second question : where to write ?? am not sure what you meant here ?!

    where do u write java code ?? in ur custom application ofcourse - from a java env where you call a external webservice

    get the data back and do whatever you want ... u can call the WS from portal as well (you have SAP supplied MDM content for the portal) which you just need to deploy in the Portal server

    hope this helps

    thanks
