SAP ERP provides different approaches to integrate Java applications with business logic written in ABAP. With JBoss Fuse, the SOA Platform, and Data Services Platform, Red Hat offers flexible middleware solutions for service-oriented integration and orchestration. As a leading provider of integrated solutions and longtime Premier Partner, akquinet has a long history of projects integrating individual applications based on JBoss with standard ERP software such as SAP or Navision.

Based on various real world examples, we will show different ways to integrate SAP ABAP backends with JBoss Middleware. We will discuss the pros and cons of integrating Java EE applications using (a) the REST based approach with NetWeaver Gateway, (b) JBoss Data Services Platform with NetWeaver Gateway (c) SOAP based Web Services and (d) Remote Function Calls with the Java EE Connector Architecture (JCA) and the SAP Java Connector (JCo) library

  • Red Hat JBoss Fuse – Build Your Own Way ● Elastic footprint and flexible architecture ● Based on open source Apache projects – – Apache ActiveMQ – ● Apache CXF, Apache Camel Apache Karaf + Fuse Fabric Apache CXF (HTTP, SOAP, REST ) or Apache Camel (SAP NetWeaver Gateway Camel Component) supports the integration with ERP systems Session title SAP Integration with JBoss Technologies Non -confidential 4
  • Red Hat JBoss SOA Platform 6 – More in the Box ● A standard based, service development, deployment and integration platform ● Ease of use ● SOA 6 Platform Architecture Technology refresh (EAP 6, OASIS ” SCA, S-RAMP”, Core ESB “Camel, CXF, ActiveMQ”, Maven) ● Governance ● Functional equivalence with SOA 5 Session title SAP Integration with JBoss Technologies Non -confidential 5
  • SOA 6 Gateways – Connectivity with external systems Camel FTP SOA 6 Platform Architecture File HTTP REST SOAP JCA JMS JPA Scheduling SQL SCA Netty TCP Netty UDP Mail ... Session title SAP Integration with JBoss Technologies Non -confidential 6
  • Red Hat JBoss Data Services - Data Virtualization EDS v5 ● JBoss Data Services is a data federation and virtualization engine, that allows you to query multiple data sources (RDBMs, Web Services, Files, Applications, etc.) as though they were a single unified source Session title SAP Integration with JBoss Technologies Non -confidential 7
  • How do Red Hat JBoss Data Services Work? Session title SAP Integration with JBoss Technologies Non -confidential 8
  • Supported Data Sources Enterprise & Cloud Applications: Salesforce.com SAP Enterprise RDBMS: Oracle IBM DB2 Microsoft SQL Server Sybase ASE MySQL PostgreSQL Ingres Big Data: Apache Hive NoSQL: JBoss Data Grid (Infinispan) MongoDB Enterprise EDW: Teradata Netezza Greenplum Technology Connectors: Flat Files, XML Files, XML over HTTP SOAP Web Services REST Web Services OData Services Specialty Data Sources: S-RAMP/ModeShape Repository Mondrian MetaMatrix LDAP Office Productivity: Microsoft Excel Microsoft Access Google Spreadsheets Session title SAP Integration with JBoss Technologies Non -confidential 9
  • Different Approaches User Experiences Web Mobile Enterprise Social Custom Java Applications SAP NetWeaver Gateway SAP Enterprise Services SAP Application Integration REST SOAP RFC JBoss EAP JBoss Fuse JBoss SOA-P / EDS SAP Business Suite CRM SRM SCM PLM ERP JBoss Middleware Non-SAP Systems/Databases Session title SAP Integration with JBoss Technologies Non -confidential 10
  • Introduction to integration technologies SAP NetWeaver Gateway Session title Confidential / NDA Required 11
  • SAP NetWeaver Gateway: Goals ● No SAP knowledge required ● Use of open, non-proprietary technologies ● Language independent ● Embrace mobile and tablet devices ● Data-centric approach Session title SAP Integration with JBoss Technologies Non -confidential 12
  • SAP NetWeaver Gateway: Characteristics ● A set of add-ons to existing SAP ABAP stack ● Embraces REST architectural style – – ● HTTP(S) XML or JSON data formats Tools for Eclipse, Visual Studio and Xcode – Find exposed services and generate code Session title SAP Integration with JBoss Technologies Non -confidential 13
  • SAP NetWeaver Gateway: Pros and Cons ● Pros – – ● Familiar tools and technologies for Java devs Existing ABAP functions/dialogs can easily be exposed as a Gateway service Cons – NetWeaver Gateway needs to be installed in SAP backend or separately – Creating services in ABAP not trivial for more complex scenarios – Not transactional Session title SAP Integration with JBoss Technologies Non -confidential 14
  • SAP Enterprise Services Introduction to integration technologies Session title Confidential / NDA Required 15
  • SAP Enterprise Services: Goals ● No SAP knowledge required ● Use of open, non-proprietary technologies ● Language independent ● Process-centric approach Session title SAP Integration with JBoss Technologies Non -confidential 16
  • SAP Enterprise Services: Characteristics ● Expose existing ABAP functions as Web Services – – SOAP – ● HTTP(S) XML In SAP ERP, a WS wrapper can be created for existing functions Session title SAP Integration with JBoss Technologies Non -confidential 17
  • SAP Enterprise Services: Pros and Cons ● Pros – – Familiar tools and technologies for Java devs – Use WDSL to generate client code – Trivial to create Web Service wrapper in SAP – ● Work well with SOA platforms No additional installs / hardware Cons – SOAP / WS* hell ;-) – Not transactional Session title SAP Integration with JBoss Technologies Non -confidential 18
  • Introduction to integration technologies Remote Function Calls Session title Confidential / NDA Required 19
  • SAP Remote Function Call (RFC) ● Call ABAP functions in SAP ERP ● SAP Java Connector (JCo) – Java library – Uses the binary SAP RFC protocol, supports ● Connection pooling ● Transactions ● Security ● Process-centric approach ● Does not fit very well into Java EE... Session title SAP Integration with JBoss Technologies Non -confidential 20
  • Java EE Connector Architecture (JCA) ● Interaction of Java EE apps with Enterprise Information Systems (EIS) – ● … such as SAP ERP A Resource Adapter – is deployed in a Java EE application server – implements the JCA for a specific EIS ● Defines inbound and outbound connectivity ● Takes care of connections, security, transactions, configuration Session title SAP Integration with JBoss Technologies Non -confidential 21
  • Resource Adapters for SAP: Availability ● SAP's own RA only runs on SAP NetWeaver Application Server ;-( ● Open Source alternatives: – Cuckoo Resource Adapter for SAP ● ● – Status: Stable (LGPL) http://sourceforge.net/projects/cuckoo-ra/ JBoss SAP JCA Connector ● ● ● Status: In Development (LGPL) https://github.com/punkhorn/jboss-sap-jca All these use the SAP Java Connector (JCo) under the hood Session title SAP Integration with JBoss Technologies Non -confidential 22
  • JCA + JCo: Pros and Cons ● Pros – – No additional installs on SAP backend – Bidirectional communication possible (Java calls SAP, SAP calls Java) – ● Fits well into Java EE world Transactional Cons – Proprietary protocol – JCA Common Client Interface (CCI): overly generic, lots of glue code Session title SAP Integration with JBoss Technologies Non -confidential 23
  • Hibersap ● “O/R-Mapper for SAP” ● Mapping of ABAP functions to Java objects – with Java annotations ● Lean API ● On top of JCA Resource Adapter or JCo ● Open Source (LGPL) Session title SAP Integration with JBoss Technologies Non -confidential 24
  • Where to go? Session title Confidential / NDA Required 25
  • The data-centric approach ● When you expose data from an SAP ERP system to your application – ● Use SAP NetWeaver Gateway The JBoss Data Services Platform with NetWeaver Gateway gives you – … a common way to unify virtualized view of information combined from multiple disparate sources (SAPs, …) – … the ability to enable users and applications to query and manage the integrated data as if it were located in a single database via a single uniform API Session title SAP Integration with JBoss Technologies Non -confidential 26
  • The data-centric approach: Example 1 ● ● ● Web app for S&D for use by mobile and desktop devices Search, view, change and create customers and related data Customer data resides in SAP ERP Session title SAP Integration with JBoss Technologies Non -confidential 27
  • The data-centric approach: Example 2 ● ● ● Reporting App for an online credit platform Aggregate and virtualize credit request customer's data Customer's data resides in different sources (DB, SAP, Salesforce) Session title SAP Integration with JBoss Technologies Non -confidential 28
  • The process-centric approach ● ● When integrating business processes into your Java EE app, consider using Hibersap with JCA This makes sure – ... your data stays consistent in all systems – … you are ready for complex scenarios – … your code remains expressive and maintainable Session title SAP Integration with JBoss Technologies Non -confidential 29
  • The process-centric approach: Example ● Hospital Information System ● Java EE application w/ Rich Client ● ● ● Invoices are created in Java EE application Further financial processes take place in SAP ERP Distributed transactions guarantee data consistency in both systems Session title SAP Integration with JBoss Technologies Non -confidential 30
