Background Processing, Job Scheduling (BC-XBP)
BC-XBP enables external job management software to schedule, start, and monitor jobs outside of the SAP NetWeaver system. Through this interface, the SAP NetWeaver Computer Center Management System (CCMS) supports software vendors that integrate their products with SAP's existing administration tools.
Please note that the existing BC-XBP 6.10 and 7.0 interfaces have now been technically merged into one interface called BC-XBP 7.20. Furthermore, there are no longer any optional, but only mandatory components to test.
The SAP Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) highly recommends that ISVs and partners, who are interested in certifying an integration of their product with SAP solutions, begin with our page Getting Started with Integration and Certification that explains the SAP ICC services and describes the process how to obtain them. This page helps you select the correct integration scenario and contains technical information, streaming media presentations, step-by-step guides, and much more.
The technology platform of the interface has changed; the scope of certification has not been changed. Recertification is optional, but advised.
For more information about this interface, please access the BC-XBP Description document.
