Business Connector to XI


I have tried to find some documents on replacing XI with BC. I found one document, how-to migrate sap bc scenarios to sap xi. I am little bit confused with that doc. It says URL, I dont see any URL there to import.

If anybody worked on replacing BC with XI, can you please help me on what can we import from BC in XI and how to do that?.

what can i do with the XML file from BC(Flow Service) in XI?. Any pointers, or further information is highly appreciated.

    Hi Raj,

    there a few a few tools like this one:

    however we did the migration by replacing the flow

    with the BPMs or not in the XI manually

    if you know BC and XI it's not that difficult to migrate

    - but sometimes it's good to replace some things

    with XI tools and not migrate everything as it goes...

      Hi Raj,

      The url should be the URL for your SAP BC Server.

      It should be something like http://<SAP BC ServerName>:<SAP BC Port>/invoke/<folder>/<service>. Default port is 5555. But Find out correct port from SAP BC Administrator and use that in your URL.

    Hi Raj,

    If you are an SAP Customer, SAP allows you to download SAPBC4.7 from Service Market Place. Download both Server and Integrator and play with it little bit to understand the SAPBC.

    Once you download and install the SAP BC, You can start the SAP BC from the command prompt with the following command.

    c:\ <BC Install Dir>/Server/bin/Server.bat -log none.

    To view the homepage of the SAPBC Server enter the url.

    http://localhost:5555 (5555 default port)

    Once you start the server, you should be able to start the Developer or Integrator by clicking on the Integrator.bat file located in the <SAP BC Install directory>/Developer/bin directory.

    SAP BC has some example Scenarios(WMExamples) which you could use to play and integrate with SAP XI.

    Hope this helps.
