Integrating Java apps and SAP with the JCo API -- resources

The JCo API offers eight distinct JCO.createClient() methods to establish a connection to the SAP application server. This handy step-by-step guide reviews these mechanisms and offers some recommendations on the best way to pass system parameters to an SAP JCo connection.

Obviously, the JCo API was designed with flexible connectivity to the SAP application server in mind. Depending on the type of application you are building, any one of these connection mechanisms should fit your needs. Much of the development I do for SAP must be deployed within a Java application server, so the ResourceBundle approach gives me the ability to bundle the configuration file with the application. Likewise, you may find a combination of these approaches best suits your development needs. Regardless, the SAP connectivity delivered by the JCo API provides an invaluable resource to integrating Java applications within your SAP system landscape.
