Defining Back-end Connections for Agentry

Define back-end connections for the selected Agentry application after publishing the application. Before then, the Back End tab is blank. The application developer creates initial back-end connection settings during development, and then publishes the application to SAP Mobile Platform Server. Once you publish the application, you must modify the initial back-end connection values for the SAP Mobile Platform environment.

Communication between SAP Mobile Platform Server and the back-end system is represented within the application by the back-end connection type. Each type of back end has its own configuration options. Back-end connection types include:
  • SQL database connections (both Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle) – between the Agentry application and a single SQL database
  • Java Virtual Machine connections – between the Agentry application and custom code (use this option to connect to SAP from Agentry via custom Java code)
  • HTTP-XML Server (Web Service) connections – between the Agentry application and an XML-based Web service (use this option to connect to SAP from Agentry via web services)
  • OData connections – between the Agentry application and OData back-end service.
  • File system connections – between the Agentry application and a file system
