Querying SAP database using Python

Python is one of the most used object-oriented programming languages which is very easy to code and understand.

In order to use Python with SAP, we need to install Python SAP RFC module which is known as PyRFC. One of its available methods is RFC_READ_TABLE which can be called to read data from a table in SAP database.

Also, the PyRFC package provides various bindings which can be utilized to make calls either way. We can use to make calls either from ABAP modules to Python modules or the other way round. One can define equivalent SAP data types which are used in data exchange.

Also, we can create Web Service in Python which can be used for inter-communication. SAP NetWeaver is fully compatible with web services either state full or stateless.
