    Hi Keerthi,

    File adapters are protocol that used to transfer the data [file (as XML format or as CSV (Comma Separated Value) format)] between systems in OS level. The main use is that it can interchange data between SAP and NonSAP systems. Considerably, these are the easiest way to integration between the systems.

    Hope this ans will help you.

    The Qst is not properly understandable, I can help you if it is properly asked..

    Regards

      Hi Keerthi,

      <b>it means that what systems use file adapter?</b>

      Whenever u need to send one/multiple file from one system to another system XI uses FILE Adapter.

      see when XI is communicating with other SAP sytem ..XI communicates by RFC/IDoc/Proxy... so no question of FILE adapter.

      Whenever XI communicates with a Database it uses JDBC.

      So mostly..FILE adapters are used to pick file from LEGACY systems..like java systems,.net systems,webservices, ms sql server,AS400 (mainframe system) etc and vice versa.

    If i have understood your question correctly.

    Applications which are mainly closed systems which process the data in the format varying from normal UTF or encoding type in files.

    If not elobrate your question.

    Hi Keerthi,

    what do you mean by applications here??

    If you want to know the use of file adapter:

    1) It is used to read and write the files at OS level.

    2)It can act as an FTP client,meaning it can perform Get and Put in the sender and receiver case respectively.

    For more information:

    hi keerthi,

    The applications which consumes files as input or can provide file as an output to other application then we use file adapter.

    clearly, if

    System A can produce and consume only files as resource then we will go for file adapters
