BizTalk SAP Adapter - Support for NW RFC SDK RRS feed

  • Question

  • As per the installation guide, the BizTalk SAP Adapter requires the SAP RFC SDK. 

    According to the SAP note on the installation of the RFC SDK it will no longer be supported after March 31, 2016.  The classic RFC SDK was replaced by a new version called the "Netweaver RFC SDK" or NW RFC SDK. 

    http://service.sap.com/sap/support/notes/27517

    "After the maintenance end of SAP Release 7.10 (March 31, 2016), we no longer support the classic RFC SDK or the classic RFC library. The end of maintenance also applies to versions of the classic RFC SDK and RFC library delivered with later kernel releases (7.11 and 7.20)."

    Will the BizTalk adapter be updated to work with the new NW RFC SDK?  If so, is there a timeline on when this will become available?

    Additional details on this can be found in the following notes

  • Hello TomK_

    We are aware and solution is pending currently.

    We don't have an estimated date for it.

    Also don't know which BT versions will receive the update.

  • Hi Tom,

    Thanks for your valuable information on the forums . We are hoping SAP adapter changes  will be done aligning with New RFC SDK for SAP.

    Thanks

  • It seems the fix for this was delivered in the BizTalk 2013 Adapter Pack CU2.

    See http://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3100811

    It now uses the NCo Connector but you have to install the NCo connector and update the port bindings to use the connectortype property.
