SMP 2.3 SAP Netweaver
In SMP 2.3 we can add sap netweaver as a backend data source..In that i am able to get access to BAPI and RFC's Function, is there any other function module which can be supported for mobile application other than RFC and BAPI.If there please let me know or else give me a suggestion were I can get.
Thanks in advance.

Odata services exposed from NW gateway can be used instead of BAPI/RFC and it is recommended by SAP now since offline capabilities are going to be added with apps based on the Odata services.
Now we go for BAPI/RFC if the requirement is an offline mobile application (update operations can be performed while the app is offline, once the app comes online it will be updated to backend) and Odata service for online mobile apps. The bunch of apps released by SAP(present is apple store, google play etc) are based on Odata services.
