Interface programming, especially writing programs that send or receive SAP Intermediate Documents (IDocs) for data exchange, can be a time-consuming and labor-intensive task. The new SAP Java IDoc Class Library reduces the complexity, time, and expense associated with writing such programs in Java. This second installment picks up where the first leaves off and shows you how to use this library to write Java programs that receive and process IDocs coming from an SAP system (i.e., IDoc server programs), and how to implement robust transactional RFC (tRFC) management for the IDoc server programs.
