FunctionImports in metadata documents


Using oData Channel (minimal gateway) how do I expose FunctionImports in the metadata document?

My understanding is that a FunctionImport is used to support 'actions' or 'operations' that don't map to collections, and allow clients to use OData documents to be used to perform some (arbitrary) backend operation,

But I have no idea how to tie the backend BAPI/RFM to either the metadata description or the runtime behaviour.

I guess this is documented someplace, but I have not found out where.

Anyone point me in the right direction?

    Hi Chris -

    Chris Whealy provides an example of this in Part 2 of his HTG: [How to Write an OData Channel Gateway Service. Part 2 - The Runtime Data Provider Class|].
