    Hi,

    in the case our partner (market or any other partner) asks us to use EDI standard

    we have a few possiblities:

    EDI adapter (seeburger etc)

    or sometimes we can use an EDI outsorcing company

    (we send SOAP or HTTP) and they transform it to EDI

    - available in some countries

    • Hi,

      It totally depends on the requirement. If the EDI documents comes in files its better to use File adapter and use Conversion Agent (which will take care of converting into EDI format) and save the EDI file.

      Basically conversion agent is just to make work simple as there are lots of EDI libraries. This can be just a work around like saving EDI document as files. As Michal said VAN adapter to do a end to end EDI scenario.

      This is something simillar to posting an IDOC and saving an IDOC as a file 😊

      Thanks,

    Hi,

    As Michal told, it is used whenever your third party systems uses EDI standards, if they are using XI is for integration, then XI can understand the xml format ( XI std). SO there should be some adapter to convert EDI format into xml format. for this there is no built in adapter from SAP like file, jdbc adapter. Then we are going to EDI adapters from third party vendors, like SeeBurger etc..

    Have a look into these with XI integration-

    Hope this helps,

    Hi Seshu

    We have develop a REdi Adapter, which this you can convert flat edi, vda , ansi and inhouse format to a XML structure. With this structure you can make a mapping to any Format (inhouse, idoc, rfz.) But you must make the mapping. The adapter make only the conversion flat to xml or xml to flat. (Very Simple with any hierarchy)

    You some good services in this adapter, he make the counter of segments and messages and more

    Regards Tom
