WebServices-Role of XI

Hi All SDNers,

I am new to the concept of Webservices and SOAP, I have invoked a WebService through R/3, so I want to know the role and use of XI in terms of WebServices, If a WebService can be created directly through R/3 what is the use of SOAP adapter in XI. Please guide.

Regards,

Gautam.

    Hi

    Take an example

    A SAP Web Dynpro client sends a Web service request to SAP XI. The request performs

    a credit limit check and contains the amount as one of the input parameters. Based on a

    routing rule in SAP XI, the Web service request is directed to an SAP R/3 system (for

    small amounts) or to a .NET application (for larger amounts).

    Will it be possible otherwise??

    To only make these things possible we use XI and particularly Soap Adapter of XI.

    Thanks

    Hi

    About Soap Adapter.

    Some remote clients or Web service providers are only able to communicate by means of SOAP messages.The SOAP adapter enables you to exchange SOAP messages between remote clients or Web services and the Integration Server.

    Thanks
