.Net proxy objects - standalone proxy

Former Member

Hi Folks,

I am ABAP developer who is new to the .NET Connector.

Using the .Net Connector Help documentation, I successful developed a sample web forms application in VS 2003 which connects to my SAP system (via a bapi) and displays the results in a datagrid.

My client has a separate team of C developers that want to use my sample application as a base to build a full C application (in VS 2003). They do not have .NET Connector installed on their system. And they don't care to have the result displayed on a webform. Is it possible for them to 'import' my sample application into their VS 2003 (despite not having NCo installed) and proceed with their development in design mode? Will the sapproxy objects still work for them? What if I create my proxies as standalone proxies? Will this allow them to import my project and continue with their development?

Thanks,

Irine

Hi Irene,

a simple (and effective) way would be to wrap the methods exposed by your proxies into web services.

The web services are then free to be consumed by your team. No NCo required for any system to consume web services.

with respect,

Thanks for the reponse, Amit. However, since I'm not from the web development world, so to speak, I am not quite sure how I go about accomplishing this 'wrapping of methods into a web service'. Would you be able to provide some instructions?

Hi Irene,

Instead of creating a Web Application. You need to create a Web Service application. Then you can see .asmx file. you can use that to call the SAP proxy and you need to specify the URL for e.g

http://sysname/Appname/service1.asmx

You can pass the same to your clients who can access the web services by using proxies and incorporate the functionalities of webservice

Hi Irene,

what is the basis release of your system ?

With the Soap Processor that is available in the Web Application Server 6.20 and higher you can publish web services natively and you won't need the SAP connector for Microsoft .NET.
