What’s the BI Java SDK?
The BI Java SDK – Business Intelligence Java Software Development Kit – is a key new component of SAP NetWeaver that opens up both SAP and non-SAP data sources to your own analytical Java interfaces. With the SDK, you can build Java applications that render results of custom-designed queries on diverse, heterogeneous OLAP systems as well as relational databases.
The SDK includes a rich documentation set with comprehensive Javadocs, code samples, and a Developer’s Guide including two tutorials to get you up and running quickly with the SDK.
When you download the SDK, you’ll have everything you need to design Java applications that rely on a data source in the absence of a J2EE server. To deploy these applications to SAP’s J2EE server, you will need the official SAP NetWeaver ’04 platform (see the SAP NetWeaver Platform Developer Area for more on NetWeaver availability).
Download the SDK from the downloads page to get started! And be sure to let us know what you think by posting to the Business Information Warehouse forum. Enjoy!
