The base and flow group of activities consist of the following:

  • Check Condition Activity (IfElse)
  • Switch Cases Activity
  • For Each Activity
  • Do While Activity
  • Custom Code Activity
  • Assign Value Activity
  • Add Item (to collection) Activity

The SAP-related group of activities consist of the following:

  • Execute Table Activity (reads data from a SAP table)

A key feature of the ECS Web Service Designer is the option to use C# expressions for field/property mappings.

Other feature highlights are:

  • One-Click and direct solution deployment on SharePoint servers
  • One-Click SharePoint solution generation
  • One-Click Visual Studio exporting (the visually designed web service can be exported as VS solution)
