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!
