How to Visualize & Explore SAP NW Gateway OData Services online? : XOData Connect - Beta

As mentioned in my last post , new version of XOData is now available at XOData Connect with several improvements along with the connection/authentication option enabled - so now there is a way to access and explore any OData service from XOData - even if it's local and/or requires user/password.

Also, there is a special feature added for SAP NetWeaver Gateway OData services - to fetch all the available services from 'Gateway Service Catalog'  and populate the Service List drop-down for easier exploration. In this post, I'll provide the details on how to use XOData to start online exploration of SAP Gateway OData Services.

How to visualize & explore any OData Service online? : XOData Connect - Beta

Since we launched our XOData online tool to enable effective visualization and exploration of OData APIs - we received a few requests to enable access to OData services that require authentication or only accessible locally. ( e.g. on workstation or within Intranet over VPN ).

New version of XOData is now available at XOData Connect with several improvements along with the connection/authentication option enabled - so now there is a way to access and explore any OData service from XOData - even if it's local and/or requires user/password.

Updated : 05/06/2014 : Please see XOData Product Page for Details . XOData Chrome-App is now available in place of online version.

Hacking together an ABAP Syntax-Highlighter : Extending Prism.js

Provoked by this post: "SCN Syntax Highlighting for Dummies on SCN", I started looking into the possibility of hacking together a syntax-highlighter for ABAP – preferably a JavaScript library that can highlight the ABAP code at the time of web page load on the client side/Browser.

Way back in 2004/5, remember when we were young :) - I was putting together my first personal website www.geocities.com/rmtiwari with the purpose of sharing ABAP code and world domination :), of course. That site was long abandoned but still exist as a reminder of past at www.passionateaboutsap.com . At that time, I wrote an ABAP utility program, to download ABAP reports/functions as HTML page and *potentially* make the ABAP code presentable and readable on Web. I thought it was cool at that time – specially using html anchors to move from a form-routine or variable use to the declaration part, while reading code on web. It was not perfect or easy to use and I did not use it much myself :).

Prototyping an ABAP OData Entity Data Model Generator: Preparing EDMX XML

Continued from my previous post "Prototyping an ABAP OData Entity Data Model Generator : Table Relationships" :

I’ll now write about the EDMX/CSDL preparation part and completed prototype program. Finally, we’ll do a few test runs to generate edmx/xml files and see how it looks when imported into Eclipse data-modelling plug-in.
