SAP Mobile Platform Server comes with Integration Gateway, which enables you to consume data from SAP and non-SAP back-end and expose that data as OData services using Java Database Connectivity (JDBC), Java Persistency API (JPA), Simple Object Access protocol (SOAP) and OData Channel (ODC). In this release, the following new features are supported: deployment of custom services from Gateway Management Cockpit, additional authentication profiles for HTTP destinations, basic and SSO authentication types for web services, and enabling REST services as OData services.
