Today, I want to share a very handy approach with you about building simple web services in SAP. It's a lightweight alternative to the SOAP web services. I mostly try to avoid building SOAP web services, since they provide very thick interfaces, always need to regenerate the proxies and so on, so it can be a nightmare in complex cases (at least for me). I usually prefer building RESTful web services using the SAP Netweaver Gateway, but what if I don't have it?
To demonstrate the approach, we are going to build a simple web service that uses JSON format and deals with flight schedules.
