Versions of SAP Java Connector (JCo)

I introduced SAP JAVA Connector (JCo) in my previous post. While integrating JAVA and SAP applications one may come to issue because of usage of different version of JCo with combination of different Java JDK/JRE versions. Therefore in this post I briefly go via versions of JCo. In table below see different version of the JCo delivered over the years. Notice that is cases of some versions release dates are just approximate.

Hi Anonymous,

thank for you comment. However in fact it was version no 3 of Note 2301211 that was released on 02.08.2016. Therefore I think the version 3.0.15 of the JCo was released earlier than that. As it is not possible to track release dates of older versions of the SAP Note in new Support portal of SAP I can't tell precisely when the 1st version of the Note and also the 3.0.15 version of the Jco was released. That why I wrote approx in May 2016 in my blog post.

cheers

SAP Notes can already have multiple versions before they are released, or several updates get published on the same day.
I know the exact release date for sure. Believe me or not.
Also have a look at the timestamps of the contained classes and also at the version dialog of the JCo archive which is "3.0.15 (2016-07-26)" (--> java -jar sapjco3.jar ).
Do you still think that May 2016 makes sense? ;)
Anyway, it is not that important. I only thought that you would appreciate to get the actual date from someone.

BTW, nice blog. :)
