WebSphere Business Integration Adapter for SAP provides the features that can be migrated into different runtimes like WebSphere MQ and WebSphere Integration Designer.
This blog will outline the steps that one has to follow when migrating SAP adapter from WBI to WID runtime. This process has been made easier as WID provides an automated migration wizard to migrate a WBI project to JCA message base project.
Here are the steps that one has to follow:
1.The first step to any migration process is to have a project on a previous version of the product. So a WBI project for SAP built on a 6.0 or 7.0 is taken and imported into the WID workspace.
2.On WID click on “Import” and “WebSphere InterChange Server Repository” and import your WBI rar project.
3.Click “Next” and then select SAP connector Binding as transaction from the drop down. On the next screen select the recommended properties and Finish.
4.This will bring your WBI project into the WID workspace and gives a message “Migration has completed”. Check your error logs to check everything is ok and nothing is missing that is causing an error or problem to deploy the project.
5.Now import your latest adapter build to which you wish to import the project to, perhaps a 7.5+ adapter version.
6.In the project area now you will have two folders added other than your module. They are SAPConnector and PortConnector. For both of them right click -> Properties -> Java Build Path and add the adapter rar you added in the previous step.
7.Now click on the adapter build and click “Migrate connector project”. This will present to you the migration wizard.
8.For this wizard, select you Source connector to what you wish to migrate and Target as to what version you want to migrate it to. Click on “Next” and then click on Finish in the wizard.
This automated process provided by WID to migrate the projects from one version to another has made it extremely easy and reduced the amount of time to taken for migration of projects from WBIA to WID.
