Start SAP batch job (SM36) from XI

I would like to start an existing job (defined in SM36) from XI. I have a file that is created once a day but not on a regular schedule.

My SAP job runs every hour looking for the file (created by XI) so 23 out of 24 times there is nothing to process.

I would like to have XI start this job. So can I trigger a SAP job (from RFC call maybe) via XI?

    you need to use BPM or change ur interface.

    you need to have ur ABAP code look only once when you knowthe file available . to do that you need scedule ur file adapter in XI.

      Hi!

      Just a suggestion if you will have SP19 in production:

      Adapter Scheduling no BPM

      /people/shabarish.vijayakumar/blog/2006/11/26/adapter-scheduling--hail-sp-19-

      and

      BPM vs NO BPM solution
