Using SAP Enterprise Service with Microsoft's Windows Communication Foundation The Handling of GDT's
In this article we address the consumption of SAP Enterprise Services (SAP ES) with Microsoft's WCF. Every web service technology has the ability of building reusable types that can be used in different services. In SAP ES these types are called Core Data Types (CDT) or Global Data Types (GDT) and published in a Data Type Catalogue. If your task is only the integration of only one service in your WCF application, the standard Microsoft NET 3.5 tool svcutil.exe works well. But if your task is the integration of many services, you will not import the same basic type n times in your project. So this paper gives you some hints for solving this problem.
