    Hi Kali,

    First try to understand the architecture of XI. It will be useful when you start configuring scenarios.. You can visualize the flow of msg with this approach.. and then do take a look into help.sap.com to know a few basics on adapters(like file, jdbc). Then you have wonderful blogs in SDN which will help you configure end-to-end scenario...

    Here are a few blogs to begin with

    HI

    I hope your ABAP experience will help you to learn XI.

    First go through the Architecture of XI.

    Try to understand the components of XI.This will help you to do some scenarios.

    Go through this link for introduction.

    File to File Scenario

    file to file scenario

    Hey,

    Check it out.......

    First I thought I will just give u the basic steps involved in doing any scenario in

    XI. This is very essential for a beginner.

    First of all you would need to define your product, software component,

    business system and configure the technical landscape in the sld.

    You then go on to create the objects in the repository, you import your

    software component here and then begin your design steps. To import your

    RFCs n Idocs if you require any before proceeding.

    Then under the name space which you want, you go on to define your data

    types, message types and message interfaces.

    Then you do your message mappings where you specify your source and target

    message types and the relation between them, then you do your interface

    mapping. If you are using a BPM, you do the integration process.

    Once you have this done, you will have to move to the directory, here is where

    you define how you use the objects and how you configure them to work as a

    scenario.

    You assign your business system to the configuration scenario which you have

    created, and create the communication channels. Then you go on to configure

    the receiver determination, interface determination, and the sender and

    receiver agreements. Once you’re done you will have make sure you activate

    your objects. The exact parameters steps depend on what kind of scenario you

    are implementing.

    You can use sxmb moni or the runtime workbench to monitor the entire

    scenario which you have done.

    Also I would suggest this link on SAP help for any info that you want on XI,

    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/14/80243b4a66ae0ce10000

    000a11402f/frameset.htm

    Further, this thread deals with everything that is needed for a starter on XI. Do

    check them out,

    JDBC Receiver: exact SQL statement

    /thread/51336 [original link is broken]

    sageID=527697

    And after you are done with the documentation probably you can go through

    this scenario,

    JDBC Receiver: exact SQL statement

    Also check the following threads which might help you a little more,

    Also for more info related to XI go through these links:

    Following is the link for 'how to guides', A step by step guide to create

    XI is all about configuration of Adapters, to learn more please go through this

    0000a114084/frameset.htm

    One of the most powerful feature of XI, Business Process Management:

    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/3c/831620a4f1044dba38b3

    000a1550b0/frameset.htm

    Once you go through these links and are a bit aware what all XI objects do, you

    can try a simple "File to File Scenario" which would help you to understand XI

    objects in a much better manner.

    For help on this scenario go through this blog it is in two parts thus I am

    providing both links below:

    /people/venkat.donela/blog/2005/03/02/introduction-to-simplefile-xi-filescenario-and-complete-walk-through-for-starterspart1

    /people/venkat.donela/blog/2005/03/03/introduction-to-simple-file-xi-filescenario-and-complete-walk-through-for-starterspart2

    XI Cerification

    /thread/25311 [original link is broken]

    For XI in General:

    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/e3/e60138fede083de10000

    009b38f8cf/frameset.htm

    Now lets see the installation of SAP XI,

    Follow these steps while installing XI:

    1. Windows server or advanced server with latest service patch.

    2. IE 6.0 with latest service patch

    3. Install Microsoft office and winzip, acrobat

    4. Install JDK with version 1.4.2_03 or above with the corresponding JVM

    5. Install the SAP GUI 6.20

    6. Make sure that you have hard disk space of 10 GB in C drive and 50 GB in the

    installation drive.

    7. Make sure the virtual memory is between 512 and 1594 or above for the

    installation drive.

    8. Copy the dumps of following DVDs into the installation drive.

    • Installation Master DVD

    • Installation Export

    • Additonal Components for SAP BW/SAP XI,SAP MI,SAP KW

    • SAP Web As Java

    9. Start the installation from the DVD dump Installation Master DVD.

    10. When installing the ABAP Database the SID of the oracle default database

    should be different the ABAP database SID.

    U can go through the Installtion Guides for Installing XI from

    http://service.sap.com/instguides (SR1 installation)

    u can also refer to service.sap.com/platforms to see the available platform on

    which XI can be installed. ( Windows/linux/UNIX)

    or you can even go through this weblog which clearly talks to you about XI

    installation

    XI installation

    In addition to this installation guide you also need to download the XI

    configuration guide which is very useful for technical configurations of various

    adapters and XI system.

    At the same place you will also get the XI configuration guide e.g

    XI30ConfigGuideSPS11.pdf.

    U can also download SAP Exchange Infrastructure 3.0 SR1 Installtion Guide from

    the articles scetion.

    In simple words regarding learning XI, there is an abundance of information on

    SDN and help.sap.com…. So I think it will be better for you to search

    information there rather than me just providing you links….which will just go on

    and on and on….so I felt it is better for you to go and search so that not only

    you get information on SAP XI but also explore SDN in its real sense.

    Following are the links to weblogs which will help to develop the basic

    scenarios.
