New RFC SDK from SAP

It’s not specific PHP but with this release I’d imagine we will soon be seeing the new PHP connector coming out as well, NetWeaver RFC gives the Next generation Ruby and Perl Connectors, even though it’s Ruby and Perl it’s certainly worth taking a look at that’s for sure!

There’s been a lot of activity around this part of things lately and we are already seeing the connectors now being developed to handle both SOA as well as the RFC, and what’s even better:

RFC is a stable technology, and has been for many years, so I can understand why this revelation may not seem very exciting. What is exciting is the unprecedented level of cooperation, understanding and good will that has come out in a relatively short time, as I have moved through the process of redeveloping the Ruby and Perl RFC Connectors. The result is (and will be more so), a better fit in terms of how the SDK works with Dynamic Languages, allowing the API that the Dynamic Languages offer for RFC connectivity, to better reflect the nature of those programming languages. For example – there are better features in the new NW RFC SDK that allow for easy translation of ABAP types to Ruby/Perl types.

So as you can see many a new change coming to the world of SAP and Scripting Languages!

New SAP PHP framework?

What’s this? Seems that some folks over in the SAP Developer Network (SDN) are working on a new framework for SAP and PHP, the SAP Network Wiki is a being developed as complete transaction based framework around the SAP transactions.

As you may see…My main goal is to develop an SAP PHP based Framework, name it SAPHP, or something else. Of course, a lot of work must be done and a lot of things must be improved…For example:

  • SE11 –> Be able to create Tables, Domains, Data Elements. 
  • SE10 –> Be able to create new Transport Orders.
  • SE38 –> Be able to create programs and save them on SAP.
  • ST22 –> Be able to read the Short Dump information.

Something to take a peek at and maybe keep one eye on for awhile to see where it goes…
