    RFC is used for sync communications and IDOC is use for async communications.

    you can ofcourse use RFC for async communication,but in that case you need to explicitly define a async message interface for RFC

    thanx

    Hi,

    You can use either of these. It actually depends upon your business requirements. So first check with your functional guys whether for the specific interface they have any standard idoc or rfc. If yes then you can go ahead and use it in XI. Else if you have any close to it you can even extend to it.

    Coming to IDOC and RFC there are many number of advantages and disadvantages when compared with each other. Just google it up.
