Exposing Inbound Interfaces as Web Service


when it comes to expose XI interfaces as web services, the XI documentation quotes:

"Sie können sowohl von Outbound- als auch von Inbound-Message-Interfaces WSDL-Beschreibungen erzeugen."

-> i.e. Inbound interfaces can be exposed as web services.

But the web service definition wizard expects the quotation of an outbound interface. So am I right when I say that I always need an outbound interface? If yes, why is it possible to expose inbound interfaces???

    no, inbound interfaces can only call web services

    that are exposed on some other web servers

    only outobund XI interfaces can be exposed as web services

    (in this case XI acts as a web server)

    and other applicaitons can call this outbound interface
