    Hi Hemanth,

    I am not sure if this will be feasible, but perhaps you can <b>try accessing the RSS feeds</b> of the data that you need. I know about accessing the feeds from Enterprise Portal such that it even gets updated as the data on the actual site gets updated, but I am not very sure if it will work with XI. But, there is some hope since the feeds are XML content which XI can understand.

    Regards,

    Sushumna

      Hi Naveen,

      Correct me here if I am wrong, but I think you can use the SOAP adapter only if the website has a webservice which can provide the necessary data.

    I do think the same way. I am sry if I am giving a wrong opinion, but I think SOAP adapter is used whenever we want to fetch data from the webservices,right?

      I think we can use XI itself as a webservice which will get the data from the website...but I haven't tried this scenario and was wondering if Naveen is suggesting the same.
