XI Message flow

I am trying to integrate a r/3 system with XI, can someone point me to possible data flow diagrams.

What can be a possible scenario here...?

Can someone also point me to the message flow within IR and ID for the above scenario..

Regards

Ravi

    Hi,

    Pipeline steps for XI Message flow steps , This might help you to understand

    Pipeline :

    When a source message reaches the Integration server

    the messages under goes this

    a) Receiver Determination:

    This steps determines the system that participates in the exchange of the message.

    b) Interface Detremination:

    For each receiver determine which interface will should receieve the message.

    c) Message Split:

    If more than one receievers are found, XI will instantiate new message for each receiver.

    d) Message Mapping:

    Mapping to transform the source message to destination message format.

    e) Technical Routing:

    Bind a specific destination and protocol to the message.

    f) Call outbound Adapter:

    Send the transformed message to the adapter or a proxy.

    to interact with R/3,use can use either IDOC or RFC or proxies.

    depends upon ur requirement

      R/3 to XI we can acheive by IDOC Adapter/RFC Adapter /Proxies.. IF IDOC Adapter no need sender agreement.

    Ravi,

    Check with your funcitonal team whether you have any standard IDoc or Standard RFC. If yes then you use corresponding adapter to push data into XI. If it is something like report etc. then you can use proxy and send data to XI.

    This all depneds upon your requirements. So check the functional specifications for this interface integration.

    Alright........My Mistake.........i guess i wasnt being clear in what i am looking for...

    I am looking for a XI Message flow from External System(File) to IDOC to r/3 system and back on the same route, But from a business user standpoint.

    Hope that helps clarify my question.

    Regards

    Ravi

      Hey

      >>External System(File) to IDOC to r/3 system

      Its File to R/3 using IDOC,and u cant have a response for this type of scenario coz IDOC can't be synchronous,u can only get an acknowledgement,if u want a response go for File to RFC

      thanx
