What are some resources for connecting into SAP with C++ similar to JCo?
SAP provides an RFC Software Development Kit (RFC SDK) with the SAP Automation Toolkit. This toolkit used to be available from the SAPLabs Web site, but has since been removed. Ask your Basis administrator to check previous R/3 release CDs as these should contain a version of the Automation Toolkit.
The C libraries used with JCo are the same provided through the RFC SDK. SAP wrote a Java wrapper (Java Native Interface) around these libraries for use by JCo. SAP has not released a specific C++ connector as the RFC SDK can be used to provide C library connectivity without a JCo-style wrapper.
