    hi,

    XI is a middleware tool (you can send message to many apdaters:

    SOAP, mail, file/ftp ) by XML messages

    ALE is just for distributing IDOCs to R3 system (nothing more)

    Hi,

    Yes. You can integrate 2 SAP systems using ALE.

    >>Then why do we need XI. Is there Any extra functionalities in XI.

    Of course. Ther are a lot. Some of them are

    1. Integrate SAP and Non SAP

    2. Avoids point to point and brings in a Hub model integration.

    3. Manipulation of data to suit the requirement of target.

    4. Transparency

    Hi Rajesh,

    Yes you are correct, we do integration in XI.

    Without XI we cal also do integration using other EAI tool such as Biztalk, IBM Websphere and many more.

    XI is having various advantage over other EAI tool as mentioned in earlier replies and for more check this thread:
