A new maintenance release of the E2E Bridge has been released. With this edition of our E2E Developer Newsletter we inform you about the latest features and bug fixes of the E2E Bridge software components. As usual, you find all details in our release notes that are provided in our Online Documentation.
In this release we present major improvements for REST. It is now much easier to build restful services with the Bridge. Don’t hesitate to check it out in our online documentation (see REST Service). Please note that concerning the new REST features this is a preview release, which means that we do not yet guarantee backwards compatibility from this version on, as the REST features may be still subject of change. The next release will be a stable REST version.
We would like to encourage you to test our new way of building REST services. We have prepared a little Support Manger application that shows how you now can easily implement REST services. You can download the executable UML example directly from our online documentation (see REST Service, top of the page). We also have set up a comprehensive online documentation that describes, how to Define a REST Service Interface, Implement REST Methods, Call REST Services and Test REST Services.
Use the new stereotype “E2ERESTPortType” for your REST API:
Define REST resources and methods:
The implemented verb methods could look like this:
Test your REST service either with the E2E Embedded Runtime:
Or test it with the new E2E Bridge REST Test Tool:
|E2E Bridge||E2E Builder||E2E Analyzer||E2E Runtime|
|Please note that on all operating systems, E2E Builder and E2E Bridge of version 6.0 are distributed in 64bit only.|
Important note: Whether or not you are required to upgrade one or more of your E2E Bridge platform components may depend on a variety of factors. Please check the relevant release notes for details. Please pay special attention to the Builder Release Notes and Analyzer Release Notes, which list all dependencies between Builder / Analyzer and xUML Runtime.
The release provides new features and improvements in different areas, as well as bug fixes. These are the highlights:
|Please note that this is the last Runtime that will be available with the old SAP package. As of Runtime 2016.4, only the new SAPNW package will be delivered.|
