Hi All,

Finally thought of writing blog  after struggling to create simple o-data service to perform basic operations including media and deep entities.

So I don’t want you all to struggle and waste your time…

This is for Beginners not for Experts 😉 ,

Create your simple gateway service by following provided steps.

Service is all about Employee Information System.

Tables Used.

   1. Employee Details table[Principle data]Or[Header Information]

EmployeeTable[Header].PNG

   2. Employee Contact details(Ph no on working days and on leave)[Line Item]

EmployeeContactDetails[Line]Sub.PNG

3.  Employee Photo Details.

EmployeePhoto[Sub].PNG

Structures Used

[But U can directly use Database tables to include structure to create Data types]

1. Employee Details.

EmployeeDetailsStructure.PNG

 

2.  Employee Address Info[Include structure in Emp Details table].

EmployeeDetailsAddressInclude.PNG


3.  Employee Contact details(Info like Contact no during working days and on leave).

EmployeeContactDetailsStructure.PNG

 

4. Employee Photo details.

EmployeePhotoStructure.PNG

Lets start rocket science 😆 ,

Here we go,

Create your simple gateway service, following provided steps.

using table and structure list below with Project Details.

     1. Log onto the SAP NetWeaver Gateway system.

     2. Open transaction SEGW.

     3. The SAP NetWeaver Gateway Service Builder opens.

     4. Create a new project.

    create.PNG

            5.  Enter project name and meaningful description.

               CreateProjectDetails.PNG

               Your project is created,


Entity Type

      6.  Right click on the Data Model folder and select  Import DDIC  Structure .

  1. DDIC.png

7. Following window will appear, In ABAP Structure field

          You can import the following DDIC structures

          into the Service Builder:

        • Views
        • Database tables
        • Structures

     8.  Press enter below window will appear,

     9.  Select at-least one key or more than one keys according to requirement

         in Usage column.

     10. You can directly create complex types by adding

         Deep structure (Structure within structure).

               /wp-content/uploads/2014/11/add_struc_577381.png

Entity Set

      11. Create Entity set for each Entity type.

Right click on Entity sets->select create

CreateEset.png


     12. Press F4 on Entity type field and select entity type,

                 Enter Entity Set name click okay,

          EntitySetCreate.PNG

     13.     Create Entity Sets for each entity type.

    

Association.

     14.     If you have Header Entity[Principal or Parent]

             and LineItem Entity[Dependent Information]

      Or

      If you want to create Relationship between 2 entities

          Ex: Purchase Order header and Line Items.

              Or

          Ex: Employee Details[Main] like id and name and Employee

              Contatct details[Dependent] many.

      15.      Right click on Association->create

          CreateAssoc.png

     16. Enter the Association name,

     17. Press F4 on Entity Type name and select Parent[Header Info]

         Entity type.

     18. Specify proper cardinality between entity types.

     19. Specify Navigation Property name[This will be used in URL to navigate from parent to child and child           to parent, In our case its only from parent to child] .

     AssociationWin.PNG

     20. Click next.

     21. Press F4 on Dependent property select the key field which is

         common among both.

     22. Click next.

  1. RelationShip.PNG

     23. Check Entries are proper.

     24. Click Finish,

          Next window.PNG

Once after creating Entity Types, Entity Sets, Associations, Navigation Properties.

Your Project View look like this.

     4. Redefine the methods which mentioned below.

     5. Paste the code[Put break-point if u want to check behavior of methods called    based on URL].

     6. Expand Service maintenance.

     7. Right click on system in which you created these objects.

     8. Click on  Register and select proper System in RFC System alias.

     9. Right click again on Selected system and click maintain.

    10. Pop up will appear asking for redirection Click Yes.

    11. Click on Gateway Client.

CREATE


Steps :

  1. 1.Get any record from GET_ENTITY ..
  2. 2.After getting click on Use as request.
  3. 3.Change details what you want to create in left window.
  4. 4.Check POST method of HTTP.
  5. 5.Use URL..

—————————/sap/ZEMPLOYEE_INFO_SRV/EmpDetailsSet

method ZEMPDETSTRSET_CREATE_ENTITY.

MOVE-CORRESPONDING er_entitydetails TO ls_emp_details.
INSERT zxx_emp_det FROM ls_emp_details
endmethod.

SUCCESS CODE : 201



UPDATE

To Update the Record.

Follow same steps as for CREATE_ENTITY.

Just Change URL and Check HTTP  PUT Method.

  1. URL.

—————————/sap/ZEMPLOYEE_INFO_SRV/EmpDetailsSet(EMP_ID=’1′)

But on response   body nothing will be displayed..

For that we need to call get entity internally.

method EMPDETAILSSET_UPDATE_ENTITY.
DATA: ls_emp_details TYPE zxx_emp_det.

“Get the created entity here
io_data_provider
->read_entry_data( IMPORTING es_data = er_entity ).

MOVE-CORRESPONDING er_entitydetails TO ls_emp_details.
MODIFY zxx_emp_det FROM ls_emp_details.

endmethod.

SUCCESS CODE : 204



DELETE


To delete record Follow same steps for create.

Check http method DELETE.

URL .

method EMPDETAILSSET_DELETE_ENTITY.
DATA: ls_key_tab TYPE /iwbep/s_mgw_name_value_pair,

Guys,


If you observe here we are processing only one entity at a time,But in real time scenario we may have to process multiple entities in an instance. 

so for multiple entity processing we need batch processing, Please refer this blog Simple steps to perform Batch Operations in SAP Gateway Services.

      Yeah, We can..But I included address details structures to achieve Complex type concept,

      If we don’t want some fields then we can eliminate at the time of adding Entity Type.

        Hi Arshad,

        Thank you for sharing valuable info..

         

        I’m struggling when create file in service.

        Please check it once.

        This is my Entity type and Entity set in my service.

         

        /wp-content/uploads/2015/02/q1_639670.png

        This is my DEFINE method.

        /wp-content/uploads/2015/02/q2_639671.png

        And here is my create_stream method.

        /wp-content/uploads/2015/02/q3_639672.png

        So when i add selected service I’m getting this warning.

        /wp-content/uploads/2015/02/q4_639673.png

        And when click on EntitySets, displays this information message.

        /wp-content/uploads/2015/02/q5_639674.png

        If i use Define method getting warning “Service was created but meta data could not be loaded” when add service.

        Problem there is in DEFINE method i guess.

        How can i resolve it.?

         

        Thanks,

        Siva R.

            I have taken Entity as you said above.Again I’m facing same issue.

            Check here is my screen shorts.

            /wp-content/uploads/2015/02/a_1_639757.png

            Taken Entity as a media type.

            /wp-content/uploads/2015/02/a_2_639758.png

            Imported Dictionary structure.

            /wp-content/uploads/2015/02/a_3_639759.png

    Is it possible to have Details structure as a table type to cater for scenarios where you have more than one detail records for an employee?

      No need to create navigation for uploading document.Create Entity(Check Media Type) and redefine the method define(mpc_ext).

      Use following URL for uploading  document from gateway client(/iwfnd/gw_client):-

      /sap/opu……/ServiceName/EntitySet‘  and select method as post.

       

      Step for Redefining ‘Define’ method:

      Click On Runtime Artifacts->zcl_service_name.._mpc_ext->Right Click->Go to ABAP ->Workbench ->Redefine ‘Define’ method having code below-

      super->define( ).

       

         DATA:

           lo_entity   TYPE REF TO /iwbep/if_mgw_odata_entity_typ,

           lo_property TYPE REF TO /iwbep/if_mgw_odata_property.

       

         “Attachment is your media type entity name

         lo_entity = model->get_entity_type( iv_entity_name = Attachment).

        “MimeType  is a property of Attachment Entity

         IF lo_entity IS BOUND.

           lo_property = lo_entity->get_property( iv_property_name = ‘MimeType).

           lo_property->set_as_content_type( ).

         ENDIF.
