|com.sap.ip.bi.sdk.dac.connector||Provides interfaces and implementation for a client to access data from connectors such as the BI Java Connectors.|
|com.sap.ip.bi.sdk.dac.connector.capabilities||Provides functionality to determine whether a given connector supports a particular feature.|
|OLAP Query API|
|com.sap.ip.bi.sdk.dac.olap.query||Contains the OLAP Command Processor and all the sub-packages of the OLAP Query API, generated from the OLAP Query Model, which provides the building blocks for creating OLAP queries.|
|com.sap.ip.bi.sdk.dac.olap.query.assoc||Contains all associations between objects of the model.|
|com.sap.ip.bi.sdk.dac.olap.query.main||Contains the major OLAP query objects that help you build queries to specify multidimensional result sets.|
|com.sap.ip.bi.sdk.dac.olap.query.msx||Provides classes for creating
|com.sap.ip.bi.sdk.dac.olap.query.tsx||Provides classes for creating
|com.sap.ip.bi.sdk.dac.olap.query.types||Defines several types, with their corresponding enumerations, that are used as type safe input for other expressions.|
|com.sap.ip.bi.sdk.dac.olap.query.var||Provides classes for the support of SAP variables.|
|Relational Query API|
|com.sap.ip.bi.sdk.dac.relational.query||The main package of the Relational Query API, which provides classes to create and execute relational queries independently of the underlying resource adapter (one of the BI Java Connectors).|
|com.sap.ip.bi.sdk.dac.relational.query.sapq||Provides interfaces for data structures relevant to SAP Query.|
Provides classes and interfaces to represent a
|com.sap.ip.bi.sdk.dac.result||Provides applications created with the SDK with a complete set of interfaces to access the results of a query, delivering a relational result set from a relational data source, and an OLAP result set from an OLAP data source.|
|com.sap.ip.bi.sdk.dac.result.model||Provides classes that define the OLAP Table Model, which facilitates the rendering of a multidimensional data set into a two-dimensional matrix.|
|com.sap.ip.bi.sdk.exception||Provides classes and interfaces for handling exceptions thrown by the SDK layer.|
|com.sap.ip.bi.sdk.util||Provides functionality for configuring logging and tracing, and JARM (monitoring) functionality, via properties files.|
With the BI Java SDK, you can build analytical applications that access, manipulate, and display both multidimensional (Online Analytical Processing, or OLAP) and tabular (relational) data. This Javadoc overview page is the entrypoint for all documentation related to the BI Java SDK, including:
This overview page introduces the main components and APIs of the BI Java SDK in the following sections:
The BI Java SDK provides an object-oriented framework in which to:
The following diagram provides a simplified picture of the core components of the BI Java SDK:
As pictured above, the BI Java SDK consists of the following components:
The SDK's APIs are described in detail in their Javadoc packages, and in the chapters of the Developer's Guide.
The SDK also includes an exception framework, utility interfaces for configuring logging and tracing, and complete documentation and examples.
BI Java Connectors are a group of four JCA (J2EE Connector Architecture)-compliant resource adapters that implement the BI Java SDK's APIs and allow you to connect the applications you build with the SDK to heterogeneous data sources. They are deployed to SAP NetWeaver's Web Application Server with the optional BI UDI component.
The BI Java SDK contains the JAR files you need to develop applications using any of the BI Java Connectors and to use them in an unmanaged scenario, but to use your application with a data source in the managed environment of the J2EE server, you need to deploy the appropriate BI Java Connector and create a system with it.
Four connectors are provided:
The BI Java SDK distribution archive's documentation set interconnects two sets of Javadocs: this set of BI Java SDK Javadocs, and a set of Javadocs for the Common Warehouse Metamodel (CWM) packages upon which the SDK's metadata models and Relational Query Model are built. See Documentation for a complete summary of SDK and CWM packages.
Many of the SDK and CWM packages contain UML class diagrams. The classes or packages in these diagrams are linked to the corresponding Javadoc class or package documentation. Navigate these diagrams in your Web browser for easy, visual access to documentation.
Due to Javadoc limitations, some links between the SDK and CWM Javadocs may not resolve properly on non-Windows systems. If this is the case for you, you may always navigate from the start pages of the respective Javadoc packages to find specific documentation.
