Hi Experts ,

I have a requirement.

There is a scenario in which clients architecture is as foolows:

R/3 ->Business connector >Middleware ->SAP ADAPTER ->MQ SERIES

Now SAP adapter has coding in java (alot of coding including validation etc),Middleware is not XI,System is 4.6c,They have inbuilt Business connector.

Now the question is can we have XI Replacing this existing Business connector and Middleware.If yes will XI be able to handle SAP adapter with lots of Java Coding.

How to go bout it?

Will really appreciate an early reaponse.

    HI Saras

    Yes, It is possible. YOu can you XI by eleminating BC.

    The SAP Business Connector is a middleware product based on webMethodsÂ’ B2B Integration Server. It allows you to integrate with R/3 using open and non proprietary technology. SAP BC uses the Internet as communication platform and XML/HTML as data format. Thus it seamlessly integrates different IT architectures with R/3.

    SAP BC allows for full bi-directional communication to and from R/3. On the one hand all SAP functionality accessible using BAPIs and IDocs can be made available to business partners over the Internet as secure XML-based services. On the other hand applications and information running on a remote web site can be instantly invoked by a simple SAP function call thus making the information of the Web available to an R/3 System.

    SAP BC provides an XML layer on top of R/3 functionality so that other applications do not need any understanding of R/3 internal data structures or protocols. You can deploy SAP BC to simply but effectively achieve business-to-business integration between trading partners, thereby extending the reach of your SAP infrastructure to customers, partners and suppliers. Examples for applications may include real-time integration between supplier inventories and your SAP System or multi-vendor product, price and availability information and your purchasing application.
