We originally landed on the SAP Commerce platform because of our respective Java development backgrounds. I started learning Java in 1996, and deployed my first production Java application in 1997. Even though I have been working as a professional software engineer for over two decades, I am still very excited to learn something new that can help our clients save money and/or deliver solutions more quickly. Low-Code/No-Code (LCNC) Application Development I had been hearing so much …

Send SMS Using Only Native SAP Commerce Libraries with Twilio API

Hi Everyone! I hope everyone is doing well. It's no surprise that SMS delivery messages are an important communication channel for B2B and B2C customers. Customers expect to receive opted-in SMS-based notifications, as well as, email-based notifications for order tracking and delivery. Recently, I built a Groovy script to send customer-facing SMS-Based delivery notifications using the Twilio SMS API.  I decided to leverage out-of-the-box Java libraries that are natively bundled with SAP Commerce instead of adding the Twilio JAR library to the client's long list of custom libraries already used in its SAP Commerce implementation. If you are a regular …

Text Game-Based Learning for SAP Commerce in the Public Cloud (CCV2) Migration Projects

Hello Everyone! I recently created an SAP Commerce Business Analyst Simulator to help BAs prepare for  SAP Commerce in the Public Cloud (CCV2) migration projects. The main genesis behind the game-learning approach is to hopefully make the CCV2 learning process more enjoyable.  During the Simulator, a delivery manager will ask the Business Analyst (you)  ten questions related to migrating to CCV2 from on-premise.  The delivery manager will also provide feedback whether you answered the question correctly or incorrectly. The UI is a little rough still, but I would appreciate your feedback! Here's the link to access the Simulator: https://hybrisarchitect.com/simulation.html?courseID=ba-ccv2&language=EN La versión …
