Free SAP Wizard for Talend Open Studio

Our company develops several Talend Open Studio plugins, including this SAP Connection wizard for TOS. The connection wizzard part looks like and behaves like the Integration Studio's SAP Connection wizard but of course it is built on a different code basis. For the table downloading it uses PLSAP Connector's technology, which is approximately 10-20 times faster than calling RFC_READ_TABLE or other BAPIs. However, it is also support RFC_READ_TABLE out of the box.
If someone is interested, the source code is available here (feel free to fork):
https://github.com/starschema/starschema-talend-plugins/
https://github.com/starschema/starschema-talend-plugins/tree/wizard_only-0.1
While the precompiled binaries are available for download on talendforge:
http://www.talendforge.org/exchange/index.php?eid=463&product=tos&action=view (ALL platforms)

To install simply unzip it to TalendOS plugins directory.

Re: Free SAP Wizard for Talend Open Studio

Some screenshots about the plugin, maybe it is interesting for those, who are working with SAP tables and find Talend Open Studio a bit complicated for this task:
SAP Repository view in Talend Open Studio:

The free SAP Connection wizard:

The SAP Table wizard for generating schema/components for data fetch:

And how the component looks like:

The new version will support:
* Table joins in SAP Side. It means for instance, that you can join any table with , so you can make real incremental jobs.
* Standalone installer for last support talend os versions
If someone is interested, just contact me.

The attached binary works only with Talend OS 4.1.xx. What version do you use? I can also upload the jars for TOS v4.2.2 as well, if you'd like to use it

Re: Free SAP Wizard for Talend Open Studio

Congratulations for the Plugin.
Is anybody able to describe the prerequesits within SAP? Are there any special RFC
or BAPI's needed or does the whole connector works over "RFC_ABAP_INSTALL_AND_RUN"?
If additional functions within SAP are needed could somebody describe where the ABAP
Code is located?

Re: Free SAP Wizard for Talend Open Studio

Sorry for the late response, but I am porting the stuff and the installer to 4.2.3 ... As with the new version we have changed some of the core Talend modules, a full installer will be required to make the plugin install process easier.

For the standard wizards (eg. sap connection wizard) you do not need any RFC, you can use the talend metadata to store connections and drag-and-drop talend tSAPInput/Output components. It is free, and does not have any external dependencies.
For the high performance table downloads (including simple table fetching and SAP side transformations like table joins, CDPOS based change tracking) you will need a copy of the PL/SAP Connector package, which costs around 1000EUR. It contains the required abap codes and install instructions.

Re: Free SAP Wizard for Talend Open Studio

I have uploaded the binaries to
http://www.plsapconnector.com/free-download/Starschema_PLSAP_Connector_TOS4.2.3.exe (windows)
http://www.plsapconnector.com/free-download/Starschema_PLSAP_Connector_TOS4.2.3.zip (Linux)
And also a good news: this version supports also RFC_READ_TABLE, so you now just able to manage SAP connections, but also to use some lightweight, wizard driven data transfers as well.
There is also a documentation on usage here: http://www.plsapconnector.com/free-download/PLSC_user_manual_v03.pdf

Re: Free SAP Wizard for Talend Open Studio

Foldi
I extracted files in lib and plugin directories of TOS 4.2.3 but when I then launch TOS, I can not find the connection wizard. In pdf doc, it is written : "The wizard is available from ?Repository panel -> Metadata -> SAP Connection -> right click -> Create connection".
I can not find SAP Connection under Metadata after copying files in lib and plugin directories.
Can you please assist ?
thank you

Foldi
Can you please assist ?

Sure, first of all make sure that you have installed the sapjco3 libraries (native+jars). Then please check if there was any exception message in the log file (workspace/.metadata/.log).
Are you using the TOS 4.2.3 r67267?

I have spent most of my career in the SAP space and this plugin does exactly what I need for Data Migration purposes between SAP & Non-SAP systems.
Now my BIG Q: Do you perhaps have it for version 5.0.1 yet?
I hope you do Smiley Happy
