File->Xi->File & RFC scenario

Hi guys,

I have a scenario where file is picked up from one file system(A) and is put in

file system(B) .

Now there is R/3 system which will pick up the files from file system(B)

by a already developed abap program.

But the problem is R3 doesnot want ot poll the File system (B) every 10 min

to see the file has arrived or not. it needs a trigger in form of RFC from XI

After R3 gets a trigger , it will pick up the file from file system(B).

How can we do this using BPM

Regards

    Hi there!

    FIrst of all: why don't you send the message directly to R/3 and want it to pick up the file?

    a, you have 1 source message

    b, create multimapping to get 2 target messages

    c, first one send to file system

    d, 2nd one send to r/3

    you should also put wait step in front of step d, to be sure, file is already written to FS

    Hi Madhusudhan,

    Without using BPM, u can poll the file system B and trigger the RFC..

    Else if you want to use BPM, include the following steps

    receive step(Receives file input)

    send step(Post file to o/p directory)

    another send step to trigger the RFC

    In between somewhere you need to initialize the message interface container elemnt which you'll use to trigger the RFC

    Hi,

    You can do the mapping.And use this mapping from source to target (RFC)...which you will assign to send step after tranformation.

    This will call RFC.
