Data Integration using Integration GatewayLocate this document in the navigation structure

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.

Enhancements for HTTP Destinations
When defining an HTTP destination using Gateway Management Cockpit, depending on the authentication providers defined, you can choose SSO mechanisms:
  • Kerberos
  • Basic authentication
  • X.509
  • SSO2

Deploying Services from Gateway Management Cockpit

You can now deploy an SAP Mobile Platform OData Implementation Project directly from the Gateway Management Cockpit web interface.

REST Services as OData Services

REST services are one of the common services used along with SOAP. In this release you can enable REST services as OData services. Only get feed, select, and filter operations are supported.

Enabling End-to-End User Authentication Propagation

Two authentication types can be enabled for web services that are exposed via SOAP: basic and SSO2.
