    Hi Krishna Mukar,

    Change Management Service (CMS) is the java counter part of R/3’ transport mechanism. CMS architecture is comparable to the classical R/3 transport in many ways. SAP maintains the same terminologies like Domain, Track, etc in CMS also. The architecture is also similar and is maintained by a dedicated CMS controller system.

    CMS/Transport is important in an enterprise landscape because of the fact that the environment will be multi-layered, like for example, Development (DEV), Quality Assurance (QA) and Production (PROD). The most common pattern for the system landscape will be DEV-QA-PROD, though in some cases systems like Integration environment, Staging, etc will be present. Whichever the chosen pattern is, no rational enterprise will allow development activities and production code in the same system. So a defined mechanism for transferring the objects is required. In SAP R/3, transport facilitates this process.

    But in SAP Exchange Infrastructure (XI) the components which are dealt with are java components and their transport and deployment is not done using the classical SAP transport mechanism.

    There are 2 possible options to doing the transport of the components; using File System and using CMS

    Try this pdf from sdn....."HowToTransportXIwithCMS.pdf

    But u need service Market Place ID and password.

    With Regards,
