Introduction to my Blogs

Motivation:

Back when I started working with SAP MDM and as a next Step programming the Java API 2 of SAP MDM, I experienced a great need to get a good introductive guide. An introductive guide explaining the first steps of working with SAP MDM and showing the best way to find the path into the Java API 2. Since I am a bit more familiar with the Java API now, and I have done some projects with MDM and Programming some GUIs based on the Java API 2, I would like to give a smooth introduction into lessons learned. This Blog series will have the focus on giving a lot of code examples to help understand the Java API 2 better.

 

This Blog will

  • … give an introduction into the Java API 2
  • … give code examples to illustrate the theory
  • … give tips and tricks on lessons learned
  • … show some (sometimes dirty) workarounds on known issues

 

This Blog does not

  • … explain all concepts of MDM
  • … explain all client applications of MDM

Content:

This Blog will have multiple Parts with the Topics:

Getting the connection to MDM Repository

  • Get a connection to MDM
  • Authenticate a User Session
  •      Normal authentication with username and password
  •      Authentication using trusted connections following the SSO scenario
  • Performance issues on connection and authentication

Searching in SAP MDM

  • Content will be published and adopt to the requests and needs of the community

Checkout / Check in of records in SAP MDM

  • Content will be published and adopt to the requests and needs of the community

Retrieve Binary Objects from MDM

  • Content will be published and adopt to the requests and needs of the community

Handling multilingual content in MDM

  • Content will be published and adopt to the requests and needs of the community

Time schedule:

  • This Blog will be the first part of the series.
  • This weekend the second part will be released.
  • Over Christmas till the end of the year I will post the rest of the series.

 

So far for now I am awaiting your first comments and recommendations for the next parts to come.

 

Best regards,

Tobi

    Thanks in advance for your commitment!

      This gives me motivation to continue my work and I really hope I can help you getting to know the MDM Java API 2. So please have a look at the second part i wrote and give me feedback in case you have time to read it.

      Best regards,

    Hi Tobi,

    I think this will be a great asset and I look forward to reading your work!  I have a few suggestions for possible topics for you, they all have to do with attributes. 

    – How to retrieve the images associated with an attribute through API
    – Searching by attribute through API
    – Show/hide specific attributes in the item details (currently it only allows you to choose all or none)
    – How to show attributes in the comparison chart

    Good work, and looking forward to seeing more!
    Sarah
