    Ahmad,

    The Integration Engine of XI understands only XML.

    So, before any message hits the Integration Engine of XI, it has to be converted into XML. and that is why you use Content Conversion on the Sender File Adapter to convert the text file into XML.

    It is also possible to convert the data into XML using Java Mapping ( something that is not recommeneded ) , but, the appropriate way is to perfrom content conversion on the file adapter and make sure data coming into the Integration Engine is XML>

    well in case you have to do a mapping from one source to another, then you would require to convert the Flat source to a XML structure. FCC facilitates the conversion of a flat structure to XML as per your req.

    Its not always required to FCC a file, say in the case of sending the same file from the source system to another system.

    if the flat file has the source structure of xml format then there is no need of FCC. But when it is separated by space or any other characters or any deined manner then you might need FCC for identifying the fields.
