I am having an requirement where no of my modules in the web based application have to pick up data from SAP system.
I wanted to know from you great architechs which is the technology through which we can perform this??
Can we achieve this through MQ Series or we have to use XML (CXml) to read and insert data?Is there any other way through which i can achive this?

Any help will be appreciated.

SAP provides a (free) resource adapter that complies with the Java Connector Architecture (JCO).
You can download it from
I used it a few years ago and it worked well
This allows you to invoke SAP BAPIs from Java applications (J2EE apps, web apps, and so on).

We are using SAP Connector(JCO) mentioned by Bruno for the same purpose and that is working well too.

Our development environment is WSAD 4.1 with WAS 4.x.
I agree. Here's the link:
