PHILADELPHIA- Day two of the SAP Professional Journal's SAP Enabling Seminar began with an animated discussion of the intricacies of ITS development and infrastructure. This was a developers dream session, with nearly three hours dedicated to subjects like ITS Function modules, ITS mechanics and Internet landscape design.
SAP guru and ARAsoft founder Thomas Schuessler headed up the afternoon session with a detailed presentation on "Building Web solutions using outside-in techniques." Schuessler also covered "How to build Web applications using Java."
Highlights of the afternoon session included Schuesslers' explanation of "How to integrate your Web Solution Using SAP Java Connector (JCo)" and his presentation on the SAP Web Application Server (Web AS.) JCo is the strategic SAP middleware for Java.
After the presentation, one developer said, "If I had known about Web AS three months ago, I could have saved at least six months of work."
The seminar ended with a presentation by Adolph Allesch of Cap Gemini Ernst & Young. Allesch sought to "Demystify mySAP.com." He explained the features and focus of this often-misunderstood SAP offering.
MySAP.com is an e-marketplace solution set, an e-business platform, an SAP Web extension product and much more," Allesch said. "MySAP.com is available as an entire e-Business platform or in parts as independent solutions, depending on your integration and/or best-of-breed deployment strategy."
Day One speakers, Meera Ramachandran and Jonathon Pokress introduced basic Web-enabling concepts and an in-depth exploration of SAP's ITS (Internet Transaction Server.)
This was the second of four SAP Web-enabling seminars presented by SAP Professional Journal. Nearly 200 SAP developers, managers and administrators attended. The event focused on the tools, tricks, techniques and technical requirements of SAP Web enablement.
Two additional seminars are scheduled in London on May 2-4 and Chicago June 25-27.
