    Hi,

    1. What is XI? Is it a server?

    XI is a EAI tool. It is basically a middleware to connect disparate systems

    2. What is the use of XI?

    3. What is the real time business process example using XI?

    Real time business process example would be sedning credit card data to the Bank for Authorization. This is a synchronous call.

    4. What are the basic knowledges required to start learning XI?

    Knowledge in SAP would be helpful.

    5. Does Learning XI include configuration and coding/development?

    If you are a developer then you would need to do only the configuration in Integration Directory and Integration Repository. some amount of coding if you are doing complex mapping
