Now developers can get a detailed look at the functions of the SAP Business Connector (BC), using the practical examples and sample scenarios in this exceptional new technical reference guide

Beginning with the initial system administration steps - connecting and monitoring one or more R/3 Systems - you'll move quickly to the development arena. Learn how to use out-of-the-box solutions (such as BAPI calls via XML) and how to implement your own custom transformations and programming services (integrated BC function packages). The examples and solutions provided are designed for immediate use, with only minor modifications. Screenshots and flow charts, along with comprehensive notes on source coding, complement the text. Plus, you'll learn about IDoc-based communication and more.
