SAP NetWeaver Gateway is a development framework that offers connectivity to SAP applications using any programming language or model by leveraging REST services and OData/ATOM protocols. It serves as an entrance to SAP systems, routing requests, commands and data from end users to SAP systems, thereby allowing access to SAP business processes and enterprise information from users' familiar devices, platforms, or environments.
The integration with SAP NetWeaver Gateway happens on two levels - providing Gateway content, and consuming this Gateway content. Certification is offered for end-to-end scenarios (covering both content and consumption), or may focus on consumption or content only.
This Integration Scenario is also available with SAP Business Suite powered by SAP HANA.
The SAP Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) highly recommends that ISVs and partners, who are interested in certifying an integration of their product with SAP solutions, begin with our page Getting Started with Integration and Certification that explains the SAP ICC services and describes the process how to obtain them.
This page helps you select the correct integration scenario and contains technical information, streaming media presentations, step-by-step guides, and much more.
