There are three gateways in SwitchYard at the moment:
The list is short and a bit misleading, since you can use the Camel gateway to talk email, ftp, file, jms, etc. For the 0.4 release, we plan to add a REST gateway based on RESTEasy. In 0.5, we will pick up JCA inflow and possibly port some other gateways from JBoss ESB.
You could go with SOAP-based web service integration or through SAP's Java API (called JCo, IIRC). The former option should work just fine with our SOAP gateway. For the latter, there are three options:
1) Write your own gateway using the JCo APIs directly.
2) Look for a Camel component that already provides this integration. (interesting recent thread)
3) Use a JCA adapter once we support a JCA gateway in 0.5.
Once again thanks Keith.
I have been working on webMethods, Mule, WSO2. Now, started explore in JBoss ESB and Switchyard and I am finding very difficult to get the technical specifications on the same. Whereas in other ESB the detailed data sheet is provided.
For example, Mule data sheet link: http://www.mulesoft.com/downloads/mule-esb.pdf
I am expecting such a kind, Why dont you provide for JBoss ESB/Switchyard?
You'll see more glossy data sheets from us on the product side. For JBoss ESB (and eventually SwitchYard), that would be JBoss SOA Platform. Check here under the 'Resources' tab.
I like the table in that Mule datasheet. Provides a quick view of the various features. When I get a chance, I will throw something similar together on the community side for SwitchYard.
We provide a generic configuration interface for JCA resource adapters. The actual configuration and properties used for SAP depend on the resource adapter you choose to connect to SAP. Details on configuring our JCA gateway can be found here:
