Outbound Interface from Sales Order CRM and mapping to XML elements


I've two interfaces outbound/inbound from SAP CRM 4.0 to an external system. First option is, they want to use XI server using XML files with ABAP proxies as well or sencond option, is to use SAP Web Server to accomplish those interfaces. The external system only use XML process, URL (HTTP) connectivity too. They want to create outbound interface with data from SAP CRM Sales Order and write to XML elements. Question-1: What is the best option to use and accomplish those interfaces? Question-2: How do you mapping the data to the XML elements? Question-3: Do you do the mapping inside SAP or in XI?

      Hi Felipe,

      Java and XLST mappings are developed outside XI and can be imported as JAR files in IR for using in interface mappings.Message Mappings can be developed within XI using inbuilt mapping editor in IR. ABAP mappings are developed on ABAP stack of XI.

      And regarding structures from SAP CRM, you can import idoc and RFC structures from SAP CRM into IR of XI.

      Incase of ABAP proxies the structures are defined in IR and then proxies are generated in application systems like SAP CRM using the structures defined in IR.
