I need to retrieve data from a specific table in the SAP database using JCo. Is this possible? If so, please give me some pointers on how to go about it.
The best way to do this is using 'RFC_READ_TABLE'. This allows you to specify a table, fields, and search parameters to retrieve data directly from an SAP database table. Bear in mind, if you need to do multiple table lookups or joins, using this RFC over and over will add additional stress to the application server.
