ZFlow includes a sophisticated SAP adapter based on JCo (SAP’s Java connector library) that can be used to connect ZFlow workflows and objects to SAP BAPIs and RFCs. ZFlow can be connected to multiple Netweaver based SAP systems and often within the same workflow. This makes ZFlow ideal for process orchestration with SAP for many scenarios.
Connecting to SAP requires downloading 2 SAP libraries that can be downloaded from SAP Service Marketplace
- libsapjco3.so (for linux)
- sapjco3.jar (jar)
These files should be placed in the following locations
- libsapjco3.so (/usr/lib/ and if needed /usr/lib64)
- sapjco3.jar (/opt/tomcat/lib), where /opt/tomcat is CATALINA_HOME
Once the files are placed in this location, you need to restart tomcat.
