    HI Ahamad

    1. XI provides you with central routing and central monitoring of messages

    2.SAP CRM Middleware is used to get the data from R/3 back-end system

    though Adapters , where as XI is used to get the data to CRM system without an ERP back-end system though XIF adapter

    3.well main advantage of XI over other middleware tool is central monitoring and centraal development.and one more thing(may be business edge over others) is that its from the leader in ERP,XI is better suited for IDOC and RFC scenario that other middleware tools,so i guess if companies have SAP then they go for XI rather than other middle ware ,

    as far as i remember SAP was recommending Webmethods before they came up with XI.

    4.Comparative study can be done basically on the following notes:

    a.Message processing

    b.Volume

    c.performance

    d.Development help

    e.BPM

    f.MArket acceptance

    Lot of material availbale to do this on net

    Cheers..
