REST Adapter for


SAP NetWeaver PI

SAP Certified Solution for RESTful Services


Web Services are the key point of integration for
different applications belonging to different platforms,
languages and systems. The two common approaches
for interfacing with the web via APIs are REST
(Representational State Transfer) and SOAP (Simple
Object Access Protocol). REST, an architectural style
for distributed hypermedia systems, can be executed
on any client or server that has HTTP/HTTPS, while
SOAP requires dedicated server programs (producer of
data) and client programs (consumer of data) for data
exchange. REST permits many different data formats
whereas SOAP only permits XML. REST supports JSON
and Atom. which are part of the OData web protocol.
Since REST is based on standard HTTP/HTTPS, it is
the ideal protocol for consumption by light-weight
devices such as smart phones, tablets, and web-based
applications such as Facebook, twitter, Amazon or ebay.
Creating clients to consume REST services is much
easier to develop, and most enterprise services can be
built using REST instead of the more complicated SOAP
protocol.
The Advantco REST Adapter for SAP Netweaver PI
enables system integration between SAP and Non-SAP
back-end systems with applications on smart phones
and tablets or other web-based applications. It allows for
fast and efficient data exchange with minimal network
bandwidth. Combining the proven SAP Netweaver PI
capabilities - such as message transformation, dynamic
routing and reliable messaging - with the Advantco
REST Adapter for SAP Netweaver PI broadens the field
of applications and devices that benefit from enterprise
Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA).

Netweaver PI is that the Adapter is fully integrated
