IF_VBC_GEOMAP2_AD_GENERIC SAP Interface - GeoMap2 generic Adapter







IF_VBC_GEOMAP2_AD_GENERIC is a standard SAP interface, see below for any documentation including details of methods, attributes, events etc. Interfaces are defined much the same as a class using the same transactions but act a bit like a template (in none OO terms).
