PowerExchange for SAP NetWeaver

Effective in version 10.2, Informatica implemented the following changes in PowerExchange for SAP NetWeaver support for PowerCenter:
Dropped Support for the CPI-C Protocol
Effective in version 10.2, Informatica dropped support for the CPI-C protocol.
Use the RFC or HTTP protocol to generate and install ABAP programs while reading data from SAP tables.
If you upgrade ABAP mappings that were generated with the CPI-C protocol, you must complete the following tasks:
  1. Regenerate and reinstall the ABAP program by using stream (RFC/HTTP) mode.
  2. Create a System user or a communication user with the appropriate authorization profile to enable dialog-free communication between SAP and Informatica.
For more information, see the
Informatica PowerExchange for SAP NetWeaver 10.2 User Guide for PowerCenter
.
Dropped Support for ABAP Table Reader Standard Transports
Effective in version 10.2, Informatica dropped support for the ABAP table reader standard transports. Informatica will not ship the standard transports for ABAP table reader. Informatica will ship only secure transports for ABAP table reader.
If you upgrade from an earlier version, you must delete the standard transports and install the secure transports.
For more information, see the
Informatica PowerExchange for SAP NetWeaver 10.2 Transport Versions Installation Notice
.
Added Support for HTTP Streaming for ABAP Table Reader Mappings
Effective in version 10.2, when you run ABAP mappings to read data from SAP tables, you can configure HTTP streaming.
To use HTTP stream mode for upgraded ABAP mappings, perform the following tasks:
  1. Regenerate and reinstall the ABAP program in stream mode.
  2. Create an SAP ABAP HTTP streaming connection.
  3. Configure the session to use the SAP streaming reader, an SAP ABAP HTTP streaming connection, and an SAP R/3 application connection.
If you configure HTTP streaming, but do not regenerate and reinstall the ABAP program in stream mode, the session fails.
