Hi all,

Is it possible use PCK as a standalone without XI, I already read some posts here and there are some different opinions! Somebody said yes and somebody said not!!! Anyone tried this? One more thing, does PCK provide BPM?

Thanks in advance,

    Hi Ricardo,

    In PCK you have a Adapter engine and a Monitoring but you are not able to process any message from adapter to adapter wihout going throu the XI Pipeline.

    So it isn't possible to run it standalone.

    You can use PCK to be close to some Client wihout an own XI for example. So you are able to communicate over XI/SOAP Protokoll on one Side and on the other you can use the PCK provided Adapter.

    The PCK didn't provide any BPM functions.

    As far as i know you can use Adapter Engine from PI 7.1 to process messages from Adapter to Adapter without involving the Integration Server. So in future you could maybe run a standalone Adapter Engine for simple scenarios.

    Adding to the excellent answer provided by Robin which makes a lot of sense, PCK is basically a stripped down version of XI that runs purely on Web AS Java.

    The entire reason for providing the concept of a PCK is to allow partners not having XI talk to XI and vice versa. So, a PCK though can exist without XI, it does need to talk to a XI server. A standalone PCK without any XI server in the landscapre makes no sense apart from the fact that you can maybe develop and test custom adapters and your module programs!
