Changing market demands, bug fixes, and feature requests all conspire to confound software development, deployment, and ongoing maintenance efforts. While isolating application logic from the underlying system infrastructure is a well-established object-oriented design concept for simplifying such efforts, there is no similar model for SAP Java Connector (JCo) server environments. This article shows you how to apply object-oriented design to JCo server programming, and simplify your software development lifecycle, by using the JCo API to create a framework that implements the Java-side application logic independent from the JCo server infrastructure.
