sapnwrfc - SAP Netweaver RFC support for Ruby 1.9.x

Summary

Welcome to the sapnwrfc Ruby package. This package is intended to facilitate RFC calls to an SAP R/3 system of release NW2004x and above. It may work for earlier versions but it hasn't been tested. The fundamental purpose of the production of this package, is to provide a clean object oriented interface to RFC calls from within Ruby. This will hopefully have a number of effects: (1) make it really easy to do RFC calls to SAP from Ruby in an object oriented fashion (Doh!) (2) promote Ruby as the interface/scripting/glue language of choice for interaction with SAP R/3. (3) make the combination of Linux, Apache, and Ruby the killer app for internet connectivity with SAP. (4) Establish a small fun open source project that people are more than welcome to contribute to, if they so wish.

Installation

After you have unpacked your kit, you should have all the files listed in the MANIFEST.

In brief, the following should work on most systems:

ruby setup.rb

if your rfcsdk is not findable in the system search path, then use the command line switches for mkmf/setup.rb like so: ruby setup.rb config –with-nwrfcsdk-dir=/path/to/rfcsdk ruby setup.rb setup

Now you can either install like so: ruby setup.rb install

or build the gem and install that like so: gem build sapnwrfc.linux.gemspec gem uninstall sapnwrfc gem install sapnwrfc-<version>-<architecture>.gem

VERY IMPORTANT - make sure that you add the library path to LD_LIBRARY_PATH eg - mine is:

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/piers/code/sap/nwrfcsdk/lib

One last thing - The SAP RFCSDK is a prerequisite for this perl package to work. The RFCSDK is proprietrary software owned by SAP AG. For this reason I will not supply ANY component part of the RFCSDK with this perl package, and further more you must obtain it through the normal channels with SAP AG - ie. you must have a licensed SAP R/3 installation at your disposal.
