I am new to MI, would like to know one basic thing. I am going to develop a simple JSP Application in Netweaver Developer Studio, Do I need to have a Sync BO generated for this purpose? i.e just to devlop and test it in the frontend do i need to have a Sync BO before hand?
Please clarify me.
if you are developing a generic sync application, then you
don't need any SyncBo. if it is a smart sync, then you will
need at least the structure of your data as will be defined
in your syncbo/bapi.
MDK offers some tools to generate your bean codes for your
data objects from the xml metadata downloaded from your syncbo
definition in the middleware. if you still don't have the
BAPIs available, but already had the data structure known
for both sides i.e. client and server side developers, then
you can develop in parallel. you can create the meRepMeta.xml
file manually and deploy it with your dummy application
for your metadata to be deployed in the client. your dummy
application may just have the meRepMeta.xml on it without
you servlet implementations yet. this deployment is necessary
to have your application metadata deployed as well as for
your application to be assigned with a conversation id and
registered in the client's registry.
