SAP Mobile Platform Server 3.0 SP8 – What is new ?
We are pleased to announce that SAP Mobile Platform 3.0 (SP08) was released for download on SAP Service Marketplace on 2015-06-28.
We are delivering new capabilities in the following three big areas:
- Developer Experience
- Security Enhancements
- Administration enhancements
The enhancements for “Developer Experience” are around the integration Services and enhancements for retail scenarios.
For the Integration Services the performance and functionality was enhanced. This enables, for example, developers to do deep inserts to any level on the REST connector. With deep inserts the developer can now insert a parent with several children with a single REST call. Further the delta tokes for complex models are enabled for the JDBC connector. This will give mobile solutions, which integrate a Database the option to improve the runtime performance through the use of delta tokens.
The second enhancements for the retail scenarios include a Point of Sale (POS) optimized API, and Paypal integration. Through the POS API developers can now connect their remote POS system through the SMP to simplify the landscape for a specific solution. Through the Paypal integration developers can now leverage the Payment options in their mobile solutions through the SMP.
We also continue with our enhancements around Security.
With the new Service Pack 08, Administrators are enabled to now leverage the SMP3 as a SAP SSO2 provider. This allows Administrators to generate SAP SSO2 tickets for their mobile solutions. So the System Landscape can be optimized and no extra SAP Java stack is needed to generate such tickets anymore. Additionally the administrator can now validate with a single click if a security configuration which was just created. This saves the administrator testing and validation time to provide the expected services.
In the area enhancements for Administration we expanded the capabilities of the Solution Manager. Now the SAP Mobile Platform fully supports the System Landscape Directory, which gives Administrators easy access to the system information of the running mobile solutions.
Further we added the capability to import and delete certificates on the SAP Mobile Platform, which are deployed on a cluster. An Admin can now centrally manage the certificates.
Additional enhancements were made the SAP Mobile Platform Admin console, which is now unified with the Admin console for the Integration services. This Allows Administrators to easily drill into mobile solutions leveraging the Integration Services. Additionally we
You can consult the SMP PAM on Service Marketplace for details (SMP3 PAM (access to the Service Market Place is needed)).
