B2B Adapters

File(PO's) ---> XI ---> Supplier Hub

We are going to use the B2B (CIDX or Ariba) adapter for the above scenario.

1) How does the B2B adapters differs from the standard adapters like HTTP or IDOC adapter?

2) How to Install this B2B Adapters? Who will install this adapters (basis ???)

3) Whether the B2B adapters supply the Mappings along with that or we need to develop it?

4) What are all the other points that I need to keep it in mind when I work with B2B Adapters?

Thanks.

    hi,

    >>>>>2) How to Install this B2B Adapters? Who will install this adapters (basis ???)

    CIDX already installed

    >>>>3) Whether the B2B adapters supply the Mappings along with that or we need to develop it?

    some of them (like from seeburger) also give you predefined mappings

    >>>>1) How does the B2B adapters differs from the standard adapters like HTTP or IDOC adapter?

    their config is pretty much the same as with standard

    as they are build using the same technology

    >>Yes, I am not sure till what extent. But they are providing some of the mappings.
