Is it Worth Considering the Integration Framework Version 2?

With SAP Business One Release 9.3 PL04, we released the integration framework version 2 (also called B1if 2.0). This is a new and more sophisticated approach for the creation of integration scenarios.
Key Benefits of Version 2

  • Up to 10x faster processing at runtime
  • Runs in the cloud and on premise
  • Almost fully automated migration of scenarios from version 1 to version 2
  • Installable on single board computers such as Raspberry Pi for sensors and processes of Internet of Things (IoT) scenarios
  • Familiar UI for scenario development available in an Integrated Development Environment (IDE)

Running Integration Framework Version 2 in the Cloud

  • Use integration framework version 2 as a Platform as a Service tenant (PaaS) for partners. A partner can develop, run and administrate integration scenarios for all customers, in a truly multi-tenant approach.
  • The Scenario Package contains Scenarios and Scenario Steps. This gives the flexibility to administrate and deploy scenarios and scenario steps individually for each customer.
  • Changes of scenarios or individual steps become valid immediately after generation.

Why Providing the IDE?

The different elements to develop an integration scenario are now available at one place and improves the developer experience:

  • The Navigation Tree shows all needed artefacts and related elements simplifying the navigation and handling of scenarios
  • The Design Area offers all elements to develop scenarios on one screen with faster access to relevant integration elements
    • Authentications can be easily entered at the individual steps to secure system access
    • Details appear when clicking on an element to get more insights of each step/element and to enter required information
  • The Notification Area shows information if anything is wrong or missing when saving the scenario step to get fast system feedback
  • Multiple tabs open in parallel such as step design, monitoring etc. to increase the user experience

In Case You Wonder about the Coexistence of Version 1 and 2
Both framework versions, the previous version 1.x and the new version 2

  • Are automatically available in the SAP Business One installation
  • Can be used in parallel because they run independently of each other
  • Can be accessed within each version – 1 and 2

Start using version 2.

Best regards
Annemarie Kiefer and Miriam Rieger

      Hi Alexandr,


      have you download the B1iF 2.p already for Raspberry Pi? If not please download "Integration Framework for SME". Within the installation files you also find the Administrator_Guide for SBC. There is described how to install Integration Framework on a Raspberry.

      Regards, Nicolas

      Hi Nicolas,

      Yes, I have doc version 1.2 from 2018-06-05 and did everything as described
      (except needs to rename files (i have .bin instead .sh) but it doesn`t matter as i got error later while file executed):


      Preparing to install
      Extracting the JRE from the installer archive...
      Unpacking the JRE...
      Extracting the installation resources from the installer archive...
      Configuring the installer for this system's environment...

      Launching installer...

      JRE libraries are missing or not compatible....


      And as described before I`ve tried (i guess) all available on repo JREs and have same response

      Thanks in advance for any help

      it is very difficult to understand and documentation is not managed , i am trying to manage the B1if with CCC (Cloud Control Center ) i did not find any document explain how to install it .. i am really confused , even searching in knowledge base of support blog is very hard it is does not find matching term you are searching about for example if you search for B1if with cloud , it will find all results related to "B1if , with , cloud" and also categorizing the results is very hard why they don't categorize by product name instead , we are partners for SAP and we suffer , we always try to do it ourselves because the SAP documentation blog and support blog is very hard to search on it , i don't for how long sap will continue like this.

      Hi Miriam, hi Nicolas,

      i´m trying to install the B1iF for SME with the Administrators Guide on the rasperry pi model 3 b+ and it´s very hard to get it done.

      I´m getting several errors:

      @Aleksandr Shtyrov I solved the error with the missing JRE libraries when starting the setup with the following command:

      sudo ./setup.bin LAX_VM /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-oracle/jre/bin/java

      After that the B1i Installation Wizard will be started and on the step with the database connection there is the Database Type dropdown field empty so i cannot select any database type.

      I installed the mysql database server on the rasperry pi but cannot select them in the installation wizard can anyone help?

      Perhaps there is any further documentation about how to install and configure mysql on the rasperry pi or a complete configured image where i can check the IoT scenarios.

      Thanks for any help

      Regards Ronald

      Hi Ronald,

      actually we the installation of B1i on Raspberry Pi comes along with derby database. It is not planned to support mySQL.

      The installation of the Integration Framework on Raspberry PI Model 3 B+ requires Raspian STRECH instead of Jessie. We also plan to deliver an updated version also supporting the newest version called BUSTER probably by end of this year.

      Regards, Nicolas
