Develop 3rd party application to connect SAP ariba account

0 Kudos

I want to develop an application for one of my customers who is using SAP Ariba as a supplier to receive orders from buyers. I want to create an application for them to download orders and upload invoices and other docs in the CXML structure.

How should I start?

I am not getting the concept of DSC. How can I get one?

I have registered myself as SAP supplier free user in the EU to try out supplier portal but I can not get the full version until I pay. Is there any developer account or something to build API integration?
