Regarding ALE

Dear all,

I am very new to ALE. I know all the concepts. But i got one doubt. I am having one requirement, we are using ECC 6.0 system. client having a Java application, there they will create POs. We need to capture that data in SAP. Which way is best one?? Whether Java supports BAPIs, if we go for ALE, do we need any middle ware??

Please provide the details ASAP.

Thanks in Advance,

    ALE is usually used between two SAP systems. In your case, would suggest you to call a BAPI from the Java system.

    Hi Chandra,

    To make Java communicate with SAP, you have the SAP Java Connector (JCo). With it, you can either call RFC enabled function modules (that includes BAPI) but also send some IDocs (ALE).

    Usually, for synchronous requirements, peolple go for RFC/BAPI, whereas for asynchronous needs, IDoc can be preferred.

    Best regards,
