As a member of the integration framework for SAP Business One team, I am responsible for the technical documentation.

Usually, integration developers do not directly work on integration platform (B1iP) level, but they use the models built on top of the platform.

In this blog, I would like to give you an overview of technical articles around the integration platform.

The integration platform is the basis of the integration framework for SAP Business One and this platform:

  • Takes care of the overall execution control, internal cache, database handling, transaction  consistency, and the data transfer to and from the outside world

  • Provides parallel processing, allows monitoring, offers security functions and provides a programming environment for integration

  • Hosts integration applications, such as the framework version 1 and 2 models, as well as business process management


The following technical articles offer some insight into integration topics on platform level:

Handling of JavaScript and Java

This article shows you how you can work with JavaScript and access JSON objects in integration processing for transformations using XSL or JavaScript. When it comes to message processing, XSL and XML, as well as JavaScript and JSON are natural fits.

Ghost in the Machine

This article shows you how to use JavaScript in development with the option to debug your coding.

Building Individual Adapters Using the ECMA Adapter

The ECMA adapter is part of the integration framework delivery. The adapter is a meta adapter or adapter shell. Add adapter-specific coding to the shell to implement adapters that you need in your integration projects.

Internet of Things (IoT)

As an edge component in IoT scenarios, you can run the integration framework on single board computers, such as Raspberry Pi. Connecting sensors, defining rules for sensor data creation and forwarding offers the opportunity to combine thing data with business application data for the intelligent enterprise. For more information about the integration framework on single board computers, see SAP Note 2708915

If you want to use the integration framework to connect to sensors and use sensor data, the following articles give you some details:
