Hi Experts!

I'm a complete newbie in PI.

I have created a few simple interfaces (IDoc to ECC and vice versa), and all is good in the world.

But now I have a requirement to create the following process: A 3rd party system generates an XML file with sales data, I have to create a Sales Order on ECC, and if its created successfully then I have to create a delivery and finally a bill document. If there's any error, the process should stop, and have the possibility to continue from the last successful step (ie, if the SO got created correctly, but the delivery had errors, then the interface should try to reprocess the delivery again).

I have been reading about this types of interfaces, and have come across 2 tools: ccBPM and NWBPM.

I just want to know the difference between the two, and which one do I have to use to achieve what I detailed before.

I'm on PI 7.4.

    Hi Jesus,

    Welcome to the community.

    ccBPM is to create the business process on SAP PI dual stack (ABAP+Java), as you are on PI 7.4 and i believe it is dual stack then you need to use ccBPM for any business process modeling.

    But as per my knowledge you do not need the BPM for your requirement. this process needs to manage in ECC.


    Customer sends the sales order

    Customer --> PI --> ECC

    ECC will send the sales order response

    ECC -->> PI -->> Customer

    Once the sales order is confirmed ECC trigger the delivery process and once the delivery is confirmed it sends the invoice to customer. All the messages are asyn so its guarantee the delivery of message.

    Hope this help!

    Thank you Raghuraman and Harish.

    Is there a tutorial or document that I could review to achieve this scenario with NWBPM?

    Thank you for the information Raghuraman and Harish.

    The customer doesn't want to develop anything on the ERP side, they want to use the BPM functionality in PO, and they don't mind if the performance is not optimal.

    So just to confirm: Can I design a process in NWBPM that executes asynchronous BAPIs in sequence, and returns the messages of every BAPI execution on a flat file? And wether the execution was correct, continue with the execution of the next BAPI? And if there was an error, will there be the possibility to continue the process in the step that generated the error?
