    Hi jaya,

    that is just a definition question. Every B2B has a A2A in its stomach.

    If the FTPs reside in partner companies it is B2B.

    If the FTPs reside in your companie it is A2A.

    You see, just a definition.

    Regards Mario

    Hi Jaya,

    As pointed out in previous post B2B is extention of A2A communication. It is important to understand rationals behind B2B communication. Normally in A2A communication sender and receiver is inside one organization and developer have freedom to define communication rules but in case of B2B every party has it rules which must be followed if we want to communicate between different organization.

    don't confuse with Party/Service etc, they are logical grouping to emulate real world scenario in XI. you can still use A2A for B2B requirement but even then it will be called B2B 😉

    dont hesitate to ask further if you still confused.

      Hi Jaya,

      You can create party using configuration wizard in integration directory. Select communication type party communication (i dont remember exactly) and it will help you to create party/service etc.
