Developing adapter queries RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    I'm developing my own adapter for SAP, I've created WCF adapter classes and also configured the Uri part by seeing the Echo example, now question is how can I connect to SAP, do I need to write the code to connect to SAP? if yes, which library has to be used, i've librfc32u.dll but cant add in .NET assemblies, so what are the requirements for developing the adapter. I also have SAP .NET connector, so which one is better? I know Biztalk SAP adapter is based upon librfc32u.dll. Can you give me some sample how to connect to sap if i've this .dll.

    Thanks

  • Could you give some steps of creating Adapter, WCF help is not really that much useful, i've created using WCF Adapter from visual studio so where are the changes need to be done, if I open the connection is that enough, how metadata will be retrieved? is it taken care by generated adapter, when i saw generated code it's the the templates and the files being inherited, interfaces being defined with dummy implementation, so I want to know where should i be doing changes, i dont know the flow exactly. so what's the flow so that i can add my code accordingly.

    Thanks

  • Have you looked at the echo adapter sample that ships with WCF LOB Adapter SDK? You can also take a look at the SQL adapter sample. See the links below:
