Each service group can be configured to point to one or many SAP systems. The actual system that is used is determined at runtime via the destination finder. Applications bundle proxies to service groups in a granularity that matches the way the web services are offered by the SAP systems. For example, if an SAP system offers the web service Get Employee, it also offers the web service Create Employee, as they belong to the same deployment unit. A granularity of the service groups has been chosen that matches the entities offered by the GSDO and the deployment units of web services of the SAP systems.
