employ automatically ?

4) How to upgrade the XI 3.0 form sp 17 to sp 19? step by step expalin in detail?

5) How you will check the XI performance ? what should you do on that if

    Kiran,

    1) Is the BPM must start with receive step ? why? or i can start with any step ?

    Explain me in detail ?

    --Yes, always BPM process start with Receive step, since BPM should receive the file first and then do the remaining processing.

    2) how to set up the Adapter Specific Parameters ? Where ? Why ? explain

    --Choose business system and then from Menu option, choose adapter specific settings

    3) Can you write the java mapping for creating the dynamically new id for new

    employ automatically ?

    --hmm..how do you know if its a new employee or not unless we maintain database which talks to java mapping. But generally in java mappings we do not want to do jdbc operations. technically its possible but is it make sense to do it from there?

    4) How to upgrade the XI 3.0 form sp 17 to sp 19? step by step expalin in detail?

    --upgrade using SDM

    5) How you will check the XI performance ? what should you do on that if

    performance is low? explain indetail ?

    you can check performance monitoring using RWB performance monitoring.

    Generally BPM processes would be performance bottlenecks. Try to see if you can avoid using BPM.

    >> Is the BPM must start with receive step ? why? or i can start with any step ?

    Not necessarily. If receive is not your first step, it should be the first step with in a loop. Means a loop can be the first step.

    From SAP help : <i>Insert the receive step to start a process as the first step of the process or as the first step of a fork, a block, or a loop</i>

    But since the receive step starts the IP, it should be present with in the loop as the first step.

    >>) how to set up the Adapter Specific Parameters ? Where ? Why ? explain

    Sender cc -->ID. Check the check box "Adapter specifc Identifiers"

    >>How to upgrade the XI 3.0 form sp 17 to sp 19? step by step expalin in detail?

    I guess this is more of a Tech consultant's job than a Developers'.

    >>Performace?

    You can use the Performance monitoring option in RWB. If you find the performance too low, you can check for any running BPM instances(for days with out proper correlation) and end them. Try increasing the throughput ie. if a large amount of data is processed over a small time and the rest of the time your XI is idle. You can try to minimize such conditions.

    Ans 1.

    Always yes , it should start with receive step to receive messageand the receive step has the start the integration process option,

    but we can use send step as first step also how it is if we want to test the database connection is existed or not before receive the message into the IP.

    Ans 2.

    In Integration directory , double click on Business System , goto menu and select Adapter specific settings , to assign the logical system and others for ALE .

    Similarly we can have the adapter specific settings in communication channel template also.

    Ans 3

    -- Yes we can write javamapping for creating the dynamically new id for new emplyee as for Business requirement pattern.This can be configured in Communcation channel - adapter settings.

    Ans 4

    first we need to upgrade ABAP stack by upgrade to 18 from there 19, later kernal to be upgraded like this manner, and java stack to be upgraded and netweaver platfrm tbe upgrade..

    Ans 5

    Go to Runtime workbench open the performance monitor .

    Regards

    Chilla..
