Using BAPIs to create materials in R/3 4.7 Enterprise

We just upgraded from R/3 3.1I to 4.7 Enterprise. We used BDC to create materials in 3.1I and we'd like to use BAPIs in 4.7. My questions are: Is "BAPI_MATERIAL_SAVEDATA" the right BAPI to use, and is it enough? Which BAPI's are necessary to create a material? The program that creates materials are used internally in SAP and via Web (ITS). Please advise.
In 31I, I used to use the function module 'MATERIAL_MAINTAIN_DARK' to create materials in background. The BAPI you mention also uses this, so it is probably fine for your needs. It will do all the validation checks for you, and it has easier parameters to use. It is also fully documented.
