Difference between Adapter an Proxy-Objects

I am reading the SAP Exchange Infrastructure manuel on help.sap.com but I don't really understand the difference between a direct communication with proxies and on the other side with an adapter.

Can someone give me a briefly introduction?

Does anybody know if there is a printable version of the manual available?? I don't want to print every page on its own 😔

thanks

chris

    Hi ,

    Did you go thru this part of SAP Help-

    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw2004s/helpdata/en/86/58cd3b11571962e10000000a11402f/frameset.htm

    XI will communicate in native language with SAP systems via proxies.

    In simpler way ,Adapters will convert one format into another expected/target format.

    >>You can get some pdfs/ppts from the service market place. But it may not be covering everything like Book.

    Regards,

    Hi Chris,

    >>>>Can someone give me a briefly introduction?

    the main difference:

    proxies do not convert from any format to any

    they are native connections so they use XML (SOAP)

    (abap proxies java proxies)

    adapters convert from any format (file, jdbc etc)

    to XML

    BTW

    of course you <b>can </b>create a proxy that will

    use jdbc or http etc.

    Thank you both. This information is enough

    and I can go on reading the manuel.

    @Krishna Moorthy P

    No, I didn't read this chapter yet. It's more

    further in my manuel. But I thought I have to

    understand the basics befor I scroll to another

    mor detail chapter. But thanks for searching

    this link 😊

    regards

    chris
