EDI with AS2 and Conversion Agent


i am planning a test-scenario with one of our clients. It will be the following:

The Client A has a R/3 4.6c and send some IDoc to his client B via our XI.

For me it seems to be the easier way of getting the IDoc into the XI in opening the communication of both SLDs. Or is it more convinient to use a webservice?!

The communication from our XI to Client B will be more difficult. B wants to get it via AS2 transformed into an EDI-Format.

Now, after checking several posts concerning these topics i ask myself if it is possible NOT to buy an adapter like Seeburger's or Aedaptive's.

Therefore i gonna a AS2-Tool which we can get for free for getting the message transported secure. Additional i was thinking about to use the Conversion Agent to do the transformation into the EDI-Format.

I think this might be possible but i am not aware of the technical implementation like how to connect to the XI. Is there a way to connect the AS2 via JCo?! The result of the Conversion Agent i can add via Module into the receiver-part!?

Can some of you experts give me some hints on this?!

Thanks in advance,
