Integration issue using XI

Hi Gurus,

I have a integration scenario which has XI as one of the components, so request ur inputs on how best you would suggest solving it.

Here is the scenario point wise with all the details.

1) We have a enterprise verison of R/3.

2) We need to Integrate with a client who has XI

installed at his end.

3) The client provides us a XML document form its XI

system which needs to be used by us and a reply to

the document has to be generated to be fed back to

the client's XI system in a near real time scenario.

My questions are,

What are the different options we have to receive the XML document, processes it and generate a reply to the same to be sent back to the client.

Should we install a XI system at our end for receiving the xml and process it using our sap and vice versa?


Should we install Business Connector for receiving the document and processing it ?


Is there any other alternatives to achieve this purpose.

Thanka a ton in advance

    Hi Rupendra,

    You have multiple options...

    1. If you can have a direct http / https connection from the client's XI box to your R/3 box, then you can connect using ABAP proxies without having to install an XI on your end. However this may not work without VPN because of security and network issues.

    2. You can install an XI at your end. The client's XI system can send messages to this XI box, which can then route them as necessary.

    3. You can also install and use a PCK, which provides scaled-down XI functionalities for just this purpose.
