RFC Series Part 2, Mining R3 with the RFCSDK, RFC the Gory Details
This is the second article in the series by Piers Harding on "Mining R/3 with the RFCSDK". In this article Piers methodically walks through the basics of connecting to RFC and the pitfalls both beginners and experts routinely encounter. Piers explains these concepts using sample programs written in both Ruby and Perl that can be run against the downloadable evaluation version of the SAP Web Application Server that runs on Linux. This means that programmers don't have to be sitting in front of a million-dollar mainframe to create an experimental environment to improve their knowledge of how to use RFCs.
