Learning SAP Connector for .NET


I want to learn how to use SAP Connector for .NET either through VB.NET or Delphi.NET. Can someone here help me get started by pointing me where I can find sample source (or share that sample source directly here)?

I'm interested in:
   1) Logging on the system
   2) Downloading table entries (SE16)
   3) Getting Job Status (SM37)
   4) Getting ALE Status (WE02, WE05)

Hello Jay,
please visit the site : http://www.microsoft-sap.com
 ->under "technologie" is the link: http://www.microsoft-sap.com/docs/Create%20SAP%20Web%20Service%20in%205%20Minu interresting.

on the other side, you can visit the SAP Developer Network : http://sdn.sap.com

If you installed SAP .NET Connector 2, take a look on this:
  SAP .NET Connector 2.0 (final) is available for download

  You need Visual Studio Professional (or higher) to install.

  If you have a older version of SAP .NET Connector, deinstall it first. Also delete
  the "SAP Proxy" toolbox tab with all items.
  Deinstallation of SAP .NET Connector 1.x can cause problems with Visual Studio.
  To fix them, execute the following command:
     regsvr32 "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\Vc7\vcpackages\csproj.dll"

  As the things work fairly different from Version 1.0, here some tips to get started:

  - Download the ZIP and extract the MSI.
  - Installl it. You need Visual Studio 2003 beeing installed.
  - Start Visual Studio.
  - You see the documentation in "Content".
  - Create or open a VB or C# project.
  - Add new item "SAP Connector Proxy" (go down the list).
  - Open Server Explorer.
  - Select the "Data Connections" node and click on "Refresh" button.
    Do not right click and select "Refresh", but click the small button on top of
    the Server Explorer Window. You should see the SAP root node. If you still
    don't see it, perhaps you have a "Standard" Edition of Visual Studio that is
    not supported.
  - Add your SAP Server nodes and drag Functions or BOR objects to the designer.

Thanks okionka! =)

My next challange now is to check table contents (without developing a custom BAPI) and view jobs status and spool (without requiring the additional authentication of XBP)...

Again, thanks!
