Does B1if leverage DI-API at all?

Former Member

I have implemented multiple DI-API solutions for one of my clients, but am not thrilled with the performance of DI-API in version 9.x.

I'm starting to investigate alternate integration options and am wondering if the B1 integration framework would be a better choice?  I know that the B1WS interface still hits the DI-API behind the scenes (where the web service layer is really a wrapper around the DI-API framework).  What about the B1if?  Does this utilize the DI-API technology at all, or is it based on a different core layer?  Would the performance be better and would the B1if be an optimal way to go in the future?

Thanks in advance for responses!

Hi Jonathan,

there seems to be a misunderstanding, the Integration Framework of SAP Business One (B1if) does not replace the DI API, B1if is using the following technical adapters to connect towards a B1 company:

  1. DI API Connection.
  2. Service Layer connection (only for B1 on HANA version 9.1 and higher).
  3. Using the JDBC connection for read only.

Best regards
