Virtual Receiver

Hi All,

Could you tell me why we use Virtual receiver in Sender Aggrement and Receiver Deteremination.

Case1: Sender is Party

and receiver is Service without party

Case2:

Sender is Service without party

and reciever is Party

Pls advice...

    it is usually used in B2B scenarios,also have a look at the following blog to read more about it,even a simple SDN search won't hurt either.

    <i>Receiver-Dependent Routing

    You can define receiver determinations as receiver-dependent.

    You can use this property when configuring cross-company processes where not all communication parties know the entire system landscape description. In this case, you can release an external view of your system landscape for your communication parties. Your communication party then knows the externally released virtual receiver to which he can send his messages. By defining one receiver determination that is dependent on a virtual receiver, you can define the internal receiver system to which the message is to be forwarded.

    If you want to create a receiver-dependent receiver determination, select the Sender Uses Virtual Receiver checkbox in the create dialog.The system then displays the input fields for the receiver (party, service).

    </i>

    As per the excerpts it can be used for both receivers (service and party)

    Hi

    When we are using virtual receivers, the need for interface determination is avoided by providing some dummy names. This could be used when there is no actual mapping between the sender and the receiver structures. At that time the IR development could prove out to be time consuming and useless. So to avoid that, we may use dummy names in ID.

    A real world scenario

    /people/william.li/blog/2006/09/08/how-to-send-any-data-even-binary-through-xi-without-using-the-integration-repository

    You can look into a sample B2B scenario and use of the virtual receiver in this document - https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/docs/library/uuid/b0b355ae-0501-0010-3b83-8f2bb566fa47

    Thanks
