How To... Create Complex Business Entities using the Gateway OData Channel
Some business objects, such as Sales Orders or Purchase Orders, consist of header and line item data. Thus, when creating such business objects, it makes sense to use hierarchical or nested data in the creation request. SAP NetWeaver Gateway can be used to create and expose a service that allows for the creation of these business objects. The Gateway OData Channel provides deep insert functionality to accommodate the creation of an entity along with its associated entities in one request.
