File-XI-Idoc

Hi,

I am trying out a scenario with File - XI - IDoc using BPM. I am collecting 3 messages(file) and mapping to IDoc package. I did all Design and configuration parts. I am trying to test that scenario now. In the exercise I am looking at, they say I can send the messages through plain HTTP client. I copied the HTTP client code from some of the discussions and tried using it.

I am having couple of questions.

1. Does the program try to put the XML file in the adapter engine?

2. I am connecting to XI through VPN. SO will this HTTP client still work for me??

3. I gave the values in the HTTP client program and clicked Send XML and it says "Error on page".

4. How do I access the Visual Administrator tool? What are the authorization parameters?

Can anyone give me very clear idea of all these??

I would really appreciate any help..

Thanks

Thilothama

    Follow this weblog

    /people/pooja.pandey/blog/2005/07/27/idocs-multiple-types-collection-in-bpm

    This is for R/3 -> XI -> File

    But you can use as an example to revert it.

    <i>1. Does the program try to put the XML file in the adapter engine?</i>

    Each time you send a message, BPM will collect these and it will be in the Integration Engine runtime (virtual).

    <i>2. I am connecting to XI through VPN. SO will this HTTP client still work for me??</i>

    It should work, because once you VPN you will be in the network. It worked for me.

    <i>3. I gave the values in the HTTP client program and clicked Send XML and it says "Error on page".</i>

    What was the error u r getting ?

    <i>4. How do I access the Visual Administrator tool? What are the authorization parameters?</i>

    <filename> = go for Unix

    Thank you for the replies..

    I might sound very naive here...but Can you please give me steps to enter into visual admin tool? Do I find it in help.sap.com??

    If I am using

    http://abc-abc:50000/rep/start/index.jsp

    for entering into IB, should I go from here to Visual tool? I dont really know how to access the J2EE part of XI..and also how we go into XI BOX..

    Please bear with my innocence..

    Thanks

    Thilothama.

    SO in a normal XI project, XI developers dont need to go into Visual tool?? Is it only for the administrators?

    Tracing and Logging - everything for only the administrators?

    Also is there any freeware that I could use to connect to XI box?

    HTTP client program, when I gave the parameters and pressed Send, It showed me "ERROR on PAGE" in the status bar of Internet Explorer.

    Thanks for the replies once again.

      "Error on Page" comes when the file format is not in XML or if you have any of the other details in correctly populated. Make sure you have the following parameters correct.

      Sender Service

      Sender Interface

      Sender Namespace

      Also make sure you have the QOS etc correct as well.

      These are the three things XI needs to process a XML and only XML file.

      Hope this helps.

      Cheers,
