External Trigger to export Master Data into Non-SAP System

Good day,

Scenario: An external Non-SAP software is sending a trigger to SAP MDG to export a number of master data. This master data should be preferable XML format. Later the same Non-SAP softwar should import the same data back into SAP MDG.

I am looking for a technical solution to solve this scenario and I am struggeling, as I am pretty new in the SAP field.

The suggestions of my colleagues are: RFC, BAPI, Webservice and IDoc.

After researching on Google, Youtube and here I was not able to find something to help me to wrap my head around how to combine this technologies to export the data.

My understanding right now:

BAPI is a function which can be activated externally and I found BAPI_MATERIAL_GET_DETAIL to get the needed data. Now I am struggeling to understand how I going to "pack" this data in a "container" and send it out to an external Non-SAP software.

I understood that I can use RFC or Webservice to start this BAPI, but which is better for a simple scenario and how to implement it.

I appreciate any suggestions and support to solve it. I am looking forward to learn more about SAP.

    You have to use RFC function module and you need to expose that RFC as web service. You can do this by using PI or SOA MANAGER.
