SAP Process Integration 7.3 will not only provide new options for single stack installations and more flexible ICO object, it will also give us a few enhancement to the already existing adapters. In this article I’d like to show you a few of those:
1. Adapter timeout
It is finally possible to specify the timeout for every java based adapter that uses CallSapAdapter module bean. CallSapAdapter module has now a new parameter – syncTimeout which allows to specify in milliseconds the timeout after which the adapter will throw a MessageExpiredException.
2. Maximum message size and row size fetched with JDBC adapter
You can now specify two additional parameters maxMsgSize and maxRowSize (as per OSS note – 1253826) which will limit the message which JDBC adapter will be processing.
3. HTTP – GET
Finally we not only have an HTTP adapter on the java stack but we can also use a GET method without any workarounds.
4. Topic support (publish/subscribe scenarios) for JMS adapters.
JMS adapter now supports working with topics.
These are not all improvements for PI 7.3 adapters but I’m sure the most noticeable and I bet many of you have been waiting for a few of those for a long time. Now we still need to wait for PI 7.3 but at least we know that those functionalities exist.
