Three New How-To Guides for the BI Java SDK

Shan Jiang, engineer on the NetWeaver BI team in Palo Alto, has crafted three new how-to guides that users of the BI Java SDK should enjoy:

How To Use the BI Java SDK in a Portal iView:

This document provides detailed instructions on how to use the BI Java SDK and its BI Java Connectors in an Enterprise Portal iView. It contains step-by-step instructions for creating an iView which uses the BI Java SDK’s BI XMLA Connector to connect to a BW system and retrieve a list of schemas.

How To Use the BI Java SDK in a J2EE Application:

This document provides detailed instructions on how to use the BI Java SDK and its BI Java Connectors in a J2EE application. It contains step-by-step instructions for creating a servlet that uses the BI XMLA Connector to connect to a BW system.

How To Use the BI Java SDK in a Web Dynpro Application:

This document provides detailed instructions on how to use the BI Java SDK and its BI Java Connectors in a Web Dynpro Application. It contains step-by-step instructions for adding the required library references to use the BI Java SDK, and for establishing a connection using one of the BI Java Connectors in the Web Dynpro and J2EE environment.

These guides are packed full of concrete steps and screenshots that help you use the NetWeaver Developer Studio, the Web Application Server’s Visual Administrator, and the Enterprise Portal in the ways you need in order to create and deploy your own analytical applications.

Moya says: check ’em out!

p.s.: if you don’t already have the BI Java SDK, download it from the SDN Download Catalog.

      Do you also have an example how to use the SAP Query connector ?

      hi hannes;

      for examples of how to work with relational data in general, see the relational examples in the documentation set - https://media.sdn.sap.com/public/html/submitted_docs/BW/BI_SDK_JavaDocs/bi_sdk_doc/docs/examples.html.

      in this case, instead of using the BI JDBC Connector, you'd use the BI SAP Query Connector.

      as sample tables, the sflight-demo tables have been recommended.

      hope that helps --

      thanks,

      Moya,
      could you show an example of IBICompositeMemberSetExpression?
      Thanks.

      Hi Moya,

      I tried to use the "How To Use the BI Java SDK in a Web Dynpro Application" and it assumes you already have a TestSDK project or would know how to make one.  Can you either provide the project and its source code, or provide a step by step tutorial/how-to on how the project is setup and how you get it connected how to show a report based on the data retrieved from the BI Java SDK?

      Also there doesn't seem to be any tutorials on BI Java SDK for Web Dynpro that I could find yours was the closest. I need to use the SDK via JDBC and I am new to Web Dynpro so trying to figure out how to create a report in Web Dynpro using the SDK.

      Regards,

      Rodney

      Probably a wrong place to ask for it. It looks like you should start from Web Dynpro side. WD is too complicated to be explained in two paragraphs.

      My 2 cents.
