Uploading Transport Requests to an SAP CAL System

In the SAP Cloud Appliance Library (CAL), you can use SAP’s latest systems in the cloud with little effort. Some of the systems are free for certain purposes, and are great for learning new technologies. Especially the DEV systems can be used well for this purpose.

If you are a normal developer and get such a system, you will soon reach the point where you want to import or create transports. This is possible in principle, but you need access at the level of the Linux operating system.

I have written a simple program to copy the transport files directly from the client computer to the transport directories (trans/cofiles and trans/data) via the SAP GUI. This makes life much easier.

If necessary, the paths in the source code must be adjusted.
