In a recent post to his blog Ant Phillips looks at how you can integrate the SAP Netweaver softare into Zero PHP (a Java PHP clone).
I thought it would be interesting to hook up a Zero PHP application with a SAP NetWeaver system. So last weekend I summoned up the courage and, armed with a bottle of red wine, set about the task. Surprisingly enough it wasn't too difficult (setting aside finding 20GB of disk space needed by the installer).
He talks about making the connection via SAP's JCo middleware component and the PHP/Java bridge that comes with the standard Zero installation. Code is included showing how to make the connection and grab information from the SAP data store.
