Logical System in IDOC-XI scenario

Hi,

I need help to understand few things in IDOC-XI scenario, could any one help me in this regard.

we use Adapter specific identifiers to map services, we have following type of identifiers 1) Sys.ID & Client No. 2) Logical System.

my questions are

a) Are we use Logical System in B to B scenario ?

b) Are we use LS in reference to the SAP system or Non SAP system ? if a non SAP system....how a non SAP system send an IDOC and why a non SAP system receive an IDOC ( conversion is possible in XI ) ?

Thanks and Regards

Mahesh.

    That just means that the system isn't essentially there at the moment, but is defined in XI, so when the system actually gets put there, XI will be ready to handle it.

    Here's a wiki on how virtual placeholder works with queues, although I don't know if it is too related to this, it will give you a general idea:

    Hay Kumar,

    Logical systems can also be used for SAp sytems wich are not installed yet as a virtuall placeholder.

    a) yes. if on of your business is a non sap system or a propritery system that you developed yuo'll ue LS.

    b) non SAP system can send and recieve IDOCs. so it's possiable to get an IDOC from a system and turn it into an RFC for SAP or get an IDOC from an SAP system and then turn it into something else for another system.

    Have a Good One,
