Support for bgRFC RRS feed

Answers

  • Hi,

    The MSDN documentation indicates the only supported RFC protocol is transactional RFC (tRFC), the previous version supported queued transactional RFC (qRFC).  However, it was deprecipted in BizTalk Adapter 3.0 for mySAP Business Suite.

    See MSDN http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc185531(BTS.10).aspx

    Thanks,

    William

  • From my personal point of view I would not expect bgRFC to be supported in BT2009 or BT2010. To be honest, bgRFC isn't very common even in the SAP world. Even if it would have some advantages the normal BizTalk scenarios won't have a real benefit.

    There are different techniques for transferring data to SAP for bulk load that do not base on RFC calls (SSIS, IDOC, Z functions, etc).

    But if you think that it would be a real advantage for your solutions to have a bgRFC connection to SAP you should be able to develop an own SAP-WCF adapter based on bgRFC. Find information about adapter development here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee268560(BTS.10).aspx

  • Thanks guys for your replies.  One of my fellow ABAP developers was wanting to do some bench marks to see how much of a performance gain we might get if we used bgRFC, but it looks like I have some more work to do before we can try that.  Have you seen or heard of any such benchmarking?  We also have TIBCO in our environment and their SAP adapter doesn't support bgRFC either.
