ABAP coding / tables behind IDOC


Hello *,

First some words about the scenario:

I want to design a composite application prototype which aims to replace an existing system.

In the existing application (non-SAP) material master data is periodically (1 x per night) transferred via (customer) IDOC from SAP PLM to the application own database. Real-time read and search functionality is implemented for this database.

Now, with composite application framework, I have the posibility connecting directly (real-time) to the PLM data via entity services. So no redundant keeping of data is necessary.

So now the problem is, that I need the data of the given IDOC but in request/response scenario implemented as an RFC. Am I right?

How can I realize this? Where can I find the ABAP coding behind the IDOC? And the tables and data fields which fill the IDOC?

Can anyone help me? Or are there any good papers/information about IDOCs?

Thanks in advance.

Best regards
