PDK for .Net and access to a SAP system
i want to write an iView with Portal Development Kit for .Net in VB or C#.
My question is: how can i access an SAP System (for example via RFC) from my iView when it is running on portal? I think, there must be a possibility to get data from a SAP System in runtime of the iView on portal.
Any ideas or hints?

there are different ways of accessing the SAP backend system from an iView developed with the PDK for .NET. You can use
- the SAP Connector for Microsoft .NET (design time supported only in VS 2003, runtime works in VS 2005)
- Web Services if your SAP system is running on Web AS 6.40
- Web Services via XI/PI or BizTalk Server
- 3rd party adapters
- Enterprise Services
If you browse through the forum and sdn.sap.com of www.microsoft.com/sap you will find a lot of information and pros/cons for the different methods of how to connect to the SAP system.
