    Hi !

    the main point of integration is the ALE connection.

    You can view everything about the ALE-Connectio within the "WEDI" Menu (Tcode WEDI).

    Just browse through the transactions of the menu.

    Regards

    Rainer

    Some points would be nice if that helped a bit.

    Hi Aditya

    There are different ways of connecting non-sap systems.

    Mainly these settings are done thru SM59 like logical/TCPIP etc.

    Refer to this link for remote connection setup

    Aditya,

    1) how to integrate sap to non-sap

    It depends on the system in question. SAP provides Java connector, .Net connector to integrate with respective Java or .Net applications. You can also integrate via flat files.

    2) what are the methods to integrate

    There are multiple ways in which the integration can happen.

    1. Either through BAPI / RFC calls

    2. Either through ALE / IDOCS

    3. Throug flat files.

    In the first case, the BAPI's are nothing objects the methods of which can be called from an external system at the same time, RFC's are nothing remote enabled function modules making them possible to be invoked from a external system. You need to know which BAPI/RFC need to be used.

    In the second case, IDOCS are nothing but a specific business document in a predefined template format. These IDOCS use a specific message type for a given business document. This method is predominantly used in SAP-SAP integration, however can be used while integrating SAP with a non-SAP / middelware system as well.

    3) what function modules are used.

    We cannot generally identify the functions to be used, it will be dependent on the business requirement as I mentioned in 1.

    You will probably get more details here about the integration aspects.
