REST JSON Web services Support in SUP ?

Recently I had a requirement to create a sample demo application to showcase the capability of Sybase Unwired Platform (SUP) by integrating it with a REST based EIS system. I checked in the SUP documentation and found that SUP supports REST web service as back-end system. I confirmed the same to the customer.

In few days, we got the Access to the web service machine. We tested the same using the browser and it was working fine. When we tried to configure web service URL in the Sybase Workspace, it was expecting the XSLT. But we were not able to find the same in the REST web service. After much struggle, I found that the web services given by the customer are JSON based REST web services. Later I found that SUP support only XML based REST services.

It took lot of time for me to convince the customer regarding this. Finally I got the XML based service and I was able to create MBO’s for the same.

    • Yes, SUP DCN uses JSON for sending notification. But doesn’t support JSON as the Data Source. Sybase is working on it to Support for JSON and we can expect it in future release.

  1. I am new to SAP and I am dealing withe the same issue. I want to connect an Android App via SUP to a XML based RestWebservice. Could you please explain step buy step how you did this. Thanks and regards,
