BOBF Expression Type

NW DSM/BRFplus provides integration points that let application developers (SAP but also partners and customers) extend the functionality and enrich the expressiveness for writing business rules. An expression type for reading data using the Business Object Framework BOBF has existed for several years. Recently, it has been improved, especially with respect to code generation. The development team has provided a document describing how to use the expression type. BOBF is used in many SAP applications such as Transportation Management.

Tobias Trapp is a phenomenon! Some month ago he and his organization joined the club of NW DSM/BRFplus users. However, this is not enough for him. Since then Tobias keeps digging deeper and deeper. The result is a list of excellent blogs and comments:

SITSP 2013: Marcelo Ramos – BRFplus Overview

Marcelo Ramos presented BRFplus as part of SAP INSIDE TRACK SÃO PAULO 2013. This is the first time I’ve heard of BRFplus in the Portuguese language. Since there are more and more Brazilian customers, this was just a matter of time. Unfortunately, the growing base of experts in Latin America is doing away with opportunities to visit my second home Sapiranga, RS, Brazil. Desculpa mãe. 😉

      Hi Carsten,

      Thanks for the latest and greatest information, this is very helpful.

      I am trying to be little creative and exploring a way to create one generic RFC to invoke individual BRF calls via a WebService using BRF application name as the key.

      Do you hapend to have a code example where I can pass the Function ID/Application name and get the INPUT and OUTPUT parameters of the BRF application?

      Thanks a lot.

      Deepal Jayagoda.
