    I was involved in a similar project.I have R/3 sending me Idoc's and we need to send the Idoc to MDM. We have configured R/3 and XI so that R/3 can send Idoc's to XI and when the mapping is done XI we have used a file adapter to send the Idoc in XML format to MDM, MDM has the capability to poll a directory and pick up that file.

    Hope this helps.

      You can configure the MDM inbound and outbound folder in the OS level fo the MDM server and this place will be used by XI to put the files. MDM needs XML files and XI file adapter can supply the same. Apart from the maintenance of MDM as the third party system you need to identify the idoc types to be used and also the configuration to link XI to R/3 system so that you can get the outbound idocs in XI and also post the ones that comes from MDM.

      MDM is capable of clubbing multiple data into single XML file. Hence if you need the inbound idocs as individual ones then you need to handle the same in mapping...else will post it as a mass idoc depending on the cardinality of the idoc type.
