Generic Channel CookbookLocate this document in the navigation structure


This cookbook describes how to generate a data model from a data source using SAP Gateway with the Generic Channel programming paradigm.


We strongly recommend using the OData Channel (ODC) programming paradigm for all SAP Gateway development.

As of SAP Gateway 2.0 Support Package 05, you are strongly recommended to use the Service Builder (transaction SEGW) for your OData design-time development . For more information, see SAP Gateway Service Builder.

Depending on whether you want to develop SAP Gateway content in an SAP Business Suite backend system or in an SAP Gateway hub system, you can choose between embedded deployment or central hub deployment. For more information, see Embedded Versus Hub Deployment and Deployment Options.
