proxies over idocs/rfc

in some of the blogs it is mentioned that::

Proxies communicate with the XI server by means of native SOAP calls over HTTP whereas RFC does not, so you have to convert from RFC to SOAP and vice versa . So XML conversion is required.

so what is done in the case of idocs??whether idocs are also converted to SOAP?

XML conversion is required in case of IDOCS?

    Hi Rohit,

    proxy directly go into XI integration engine.

    So the communication is from sender IE to XI IE to receiver IE.

    When you use idocs you have the idoc adapter that translate the message so that the integration engine is able to understand it.

    XML conversion is required if there is a mapping, if the Idoc is just passed through XI it is not needed.

      Hi Rohit,

      without XI there is no conversion into XML but the idoc is transfered using idoc structure (non XML based).

      You can check this sending an IDoc from R3 to a file port.

      Additionally, inside XI the idoc is not converted into XML when u use idoc tunneling technique

      Kind Regards,

      Sergio

    Hi rohit,

    You are right, Idocs are converted to idoc xml format.
