Use proxy or not

Is it COMPULSARY to use a ABAP proxy to communicate with a SAP BW system. I am trying to send data to SAP BW system from XI,can't i just use a RFC as my communication channel and send it to BW. I am pretty new to XI,i don't know if this is a dumb question,if the proxy usage is compulsary can some one guide me.

Thank you

Venkat

    Hi,

    You can very much use RFC to communicate with BW system. Refer to following weblog for the same.

    Check the below link at service market place:

    https://websmp106.sap-ag.de/~form/sapnet?_SHORTKEY=01100035870000461570&

    Here is an how to guide on (How to ...Push Data into BW from XI)

    Hi Venkat,

    <i>Is it COMPULSARY to use a ABAP proxy to communicate with a SAP BW system.</i>

    Not neccessary. This depends on many factors.

    But it is advisable to use Proxy rather RFC because of the Perfomance criteria.

    Good links on SAP BW and XI are as follows-

    Hi,

    It is not compulsory to use proxies. RFC also can be used. But proxies is an advantage when it comes to performance. Since RFCs reside on the J2EE stack, it would take longer to execute than proxies which use the ABAP stack.
