Avoiding BDC in development.

Former Member

Hello all,

I have very many custom developments in 4.0B ver with IS Oil add-on which posts transactions via BDCs.

We are upgrading to Enterprise version and I would like to know :

(a) How to find out if BDCs can be replaced by function call, Bapis, etc. For e.g I want to know whether I can avoid BDCs for o4F1/o4G1/o4H1 - Shipment/LC/DC. I have searched OSS but no luck.

(b) BDCs give error each time some customising changes, hence I would like to avoid it.

Is there a better way of doing without BDCs ? Where to find the answers ?

Hi

IDOC could very often replace the use of BDC. Also you can use BAPI´s, but the advantage of the IDOC is the storage of documents and the error-handling.

If your Enterprise system is running you can use the BAPI-browser (trans. BAPI), to find BAPI´s.

Maybee you also can get som information here: http://ifr.sap.com

Hi

Thanks for the reply.

I have checked for Bapi - nothing available in 4.6C.

How can i check for Idoc and their function modules ? For example, I want to see if Idoc ,

process code and relevant function calls are available for o4f1 - how do i check it up.

Thanks
