SAP has provided a new resource for Solvers working on the Polestar Innovation Challenge. Ted Ueda, who works for SAP Business Objects has posted some sample API code on his blog to get you up and running quickly:
If you're interested in Polestar OnDemand and the recently announced Polestar OnDemand API $20K IDEAtion Challenge, then this blog entry may be of interest to you. I'm going to present here a few sample codes for that API, so you'll quickly get up to speed and have a head start on the competition!
Each of the sample codes follow the same workflow: retrieve data, upload the dataset to OnDemand, then view it in Polestar OnDemand. What differs is the programming language used and the data source. The four samples are:
1. Python script with inline dataSet.
2. C# with data retrieved from Query as a Web Service
3. Xcelsius SDK - Adobe Flex component.
4. Java with RSS Feed data.
