We have released new versions of the SAP Cloud SDK. In detail, the following components are now available in new versions:
- Java libraries in version 3.6.0
- Java libraries in version 2.22.1
At the end of the article, you will find a set of instructions on how to update to the new versions.
Java Libraries: Release Highlights 3.6.0
You can update your dependencies of the SAP Cloud SDK for Java to version 3.6.0 and consume the new version from Maven Central.
Retries for resilience
Several patterns can contribute to making an application more resilient. Some, like circuit breakers and bulkheads have always been supported by the resilience capabilities of the SDK, which since version 3 are provided via the
Version 3.6.0 now additionally offers the option to configure retries as part of
ResilienceConfiguration via a
RetryConfiguration. Retries allow for re-attempting a request in case it fails a limited number of times. The configuration offers to specify the maximum amount of attempts, a wait duration between attempts and a predicate that determines, whether or not a failure should be retried.
The OData VDM generator Maven plugin (
odata-generator-maven-plugin) can now mark generated sources for compilation. For this feature just add the property
<compileScope>...</compileScope> with the compilation phase as value to your configuration. Valid values are
NONE, representing the different compile phases or no automatic compilation at all. The default value (for backwards compatibility reasons) is
Version 3.6.0 fixes an issue where the response of function imports was not correctly handled by the OData VDM before. The response is now parsed according to the OData specification. The deviating behavior of OData services in some SAP solutions is still supported as in previous versions.
We have fixed an issue regarding timeouts in the execution of resilient requests. The issue prevented threads from being terminated when a timeout occurs.
We have also updated several dependencies. This and several further improvements are listed in the full release notes.
Java Libraries: Release Highlights 2.22.1
We have also released the SDK for Java in a new maintenance version 2.22.1. Everyone who did not yet migrate to version 3 of the SDK for Java can consume that version from Maven Central.
For a complete view on what has changed, take a look at the full release notes.
The new version mainly updates the OData client generator and therein introduces the features for batch requests and CSN files that have been available for the pre-generated OData client libraries for SAP S/4HANA Cloud since version 1.11.2.
That means, when you use the generator in version 1.11.3, the created client will support batch requests (provided the service supports it).
Furthermore, the generator will create Core Data Services Schema Notation (CSN) files based on the metadata of each OData service if you pass the command line parameter
--generateCSN=true. The default value is false.
CSN files are used in SAP Cloud Application Programming Model (CAP) when modeling a business domain using CDS. Having them generated by the generator of the SAP Cloud SDK allows immediately leveraging the entity types of the OData service in CDS models.
As usual, the full release notes contain a list of all improvements in this release.
How to Update
To update the version of the SAP Cloud SDK Java libraries used in an existing project, proceed as follows:
- Open the pom.xml file in the root folder of your project.
- Locate the dependency management section and therein the
- Update the version of that dependency to
With this, you are already done thanks to the “bill of material” (BOM) approach. Your dependency should look like this:
<dependencyManagement> <dependencies> <dependency> <groupId>com.sap.cloud.sdk</groupId> <artifactId>sdk-bom</artifactId> <version>3.6.0</version> <type>pom</type> <scope>import</scope> </dependency> </dependencies> <!-- possibly further managed dependencies ... --> </dependencyManagement>
If you update from a version prior to 3.0.0, have a look at our migration guide.
If you are using the SAP Cloud SDK in a project of the SAP Cloud Application Programming Model, replace
sdk-modules-bom to only update the version of SDK modules, not further dependencies.
You can now recompile your project (be aware of the compatibility notes, though) and leverage the new features of the SAP Cloud SDK in version 3.6.0.
Of course, you can also generate a new project that uses version 3.6.0 from the start by running the Maven archetypes for Neo or Cloud Foundry with
npm update in the root folder of your module. Note that this will also update other modules, unless you explicitly specify which packages to update. If you want to check beforehand what will change, use
Is there some kind of roadmap what to expect in upcoming versions?
