Creating Composite Applications

Composite applications are built and deployed on top of data and functions provided as services by platforms and applications, combining these into user-centric processes and views, supported by their own business logic and specific user interfaces. Composite applications are loosely coupled to the backend systems on which they are based, resulting in a new logical application tier which can be deployed and upgraded independently of the backend infrastructure.

The SAP Composite Application Framework (SAP CAF) provides a set of tools and environment for creating and running composite applications.

This documentation explains how you use SAP CAF to build composites.
