Guaranteed Delivery

Does the HTTP or SOAP adapter provide guaranteed delivery to SAP and/or non-SAP systems? Meaning does SAP XI wait for a technical confirmation from an HTTP site to ensure the message was posted successfully or does it just ensure a connection was made and then delivered without this technical response? Is this considered non-repudiation of origin (a feature only a part of industry-based adapters like RNIF)?

    Hi Kirk,

    Based on whether its synchronous or asynchronous mode, if the interface is synchronous then the caller will get the response that it is expecting from XI, if the interface is asynchronous, XI will return a recieve acknowledgement to the caller as per the W3 recomendations of a asynchronous webservice.

    in either case Xi will ensure there is guarenteed delivery

    cheers,

    Naveen

    Infact (even though the interface is asynchronous) XI waits for the whole message to be submitted to the HTTP before it updated the trace. Which means that even though the interface was async, if the message is too large and it exceeds the time limit for message submition to the HTTP client (configurable parameter), you will see an error in XI.
