How to access SAP River using Python
Inspired by the excellent blog from John Appleby introducing Top 10 tips for SAP River developers, we’ve added three new video tutorials to the SAP HANA Academy that show how to combine Python and SAP River.
Python is great for prototyping where, for example, you’d like to verify specific functionality of your SAP River application – but without first having to write a proper UI. You can also use Python to quickly and easily load test data.
In the videos I cover the following:
- Getting Started: How to install and configure Python – including the HTTP Requests package & a very simple example of how to read data from SAP River using OData
- Data and Actions: How to perform OData requests from Python – CRUD (create, read, update, delete) and how to call SAP River actions
- Bulk Loading: How to bulk load data from a CSV file into SAP River
Each tutorial includes downloadable code snippets of the examples presented to help you get up and running quickly.
