XI and Unix script integration

Hi Friends,

I have a scenario where i need to integrate a legacy application with XI. The legacy runs a schedule cron unix scripts on daily basis and XI should receive and acknowledge the messages.

Can we use JMS adapter for this? If so can somebody explain me more.

No external adapters as my client is not willing to pay.

    the simplest solution is to make the Unix script write file on some FTP or NFS folder.then use File sender adapter to pick up this file.

    • Hi,

      >>Triggering from XI using OS command is not possible as the trigger is always controlled from Manugistics.

      I think,this is ok,but need to make sure that script can place all the files in the specified directory from where Sender file adapter picks the files.

      >>Yeah, we may use file adapter but we have to acknowledge the message back to manugistics.

      sender file adapter can handle system acknowledgments and system error acknowledgments if they are requested by the sender as said in the help link below

      >>Also, It should be sync call, after getting the acknowledgement from SAP XI , manugistics will continue their job in fetching some other data from different application.

      are you saying that you need Sync call ,beacuse once you get the ack from XI to trigger another application?you may not need sync.I am thinking like to approach this way,get the system ack from XI and should be handle by script and trigger another application once after only receiving the ACK from XI for the first Application and then trigger the second application.again pick the files using the sender file adapter,may be same interface or different interface depending upon the structure.

      so triggering and receiving the ACk from XI have to be handle by the scriptd that are running on your SCM.

      see if this can be done in your application,if not we will what other people might suggest.
