currency-conversion-library - v0.1.1

SAP Cloud SDK Currency Conversion Library

The currency conversion library is an extension to the SAP Cloud SDK. You can use this library to facilitate currency exchange rate conversion.

The library does not provide any out of the box market data. You must provide the currency exchange rates to the library from your own data sources. You can use the SAP Market Rates Management service or any other service of your choice.

You can use the library for the following functions:

  • Direct one-to-one conversions - from a source currency to a target currency.
  • Indirect conversions - uses inverse rates or a "reference currency".
  • Fixed rate conversions - you have the exact currency exchange rate that you want to use in your conversion operations.
  • Non-fixed rate conversions - unlike the fixed rate, you have a set of exchange rates. The library will pick the "best rate" from the set depending on various factors.

The library provides the following modules:

Features

Get Bulk Conversions
