    Hi Narayanan,

    The roles of Xi developer and administrator are distinguished. I'll mention some examples,

    XI Administrator....

    1. Installation and configuration of XI server.

    2. Post installation steps of XI server.

    3. Creating software Component and Software products in SLD.

    4. Also creation of namespaces will come under the roles of admin, as in our enviornment developer does'nt have the rights to create a new namespaces . Developer files up a request form to Basis team and an Administrator does the creation.

    5.Then there are many periodic activities like archiving of messages, deletion of messages , performance tuning if required, etc.

    6.Creating Business system in SLD .

    7. Assigning proper roles to individual user etc.

    8. Also Creation of an XI Track in CMS to transport your objects is a task of XI Administrator.

    XI developer.

    1 XI developer deals with the Scenario specific Repository objects like creation of Data type , message type , message interface,mapping ,etc.

    He is also responsible for the creating the configuration objects in ID.

    Hope this helps you,

      Administrator jobs basically will be done by the Basis guys. If you wanna be a Developer you will develop the interfaces according to the companys requirements. For ex. if you join the company who is upgrading from Mainframes to SAP and if they are using XI as an Middleware then you might be working with some scenarios like File-XI-File, File-XI-IDoc, File-XI-RFC, JDBC-XI-File, JDBC-XI-JDBC etc.

      So depending upon the requirement and the field which the company is into is what you will be going to work as an XI developer. But basically you might be working the follwoing example scenarios:
