So I just wanted to run a quick experiment.
I got a new MacBook Air as a replacement of my previous machine. Installed Java JRE smoothly and, just immediately after, the SAPGUI for the Java Environment. After sorting out the syntax for the connection string (i.e.: in the most simple scenarios it’s something like
/H/hostname/S/3200 ) then connection to SAP works like a charm.
Why do I blog this
Usually most users and consultants working with SAP are lead to believe it’s a very strict and well framed ERP environment. This is true from several perspectives, however with a simple research on the SDN and Googling around, there are also several interesting related products and technologies. Potentially this could prove that “the best run businesses run SAP” leveraging connections from several platforms.
