Software Components for XI in SLD.

I'm starting with my first project in XI, and I have the following doubts.

The SAP ERP systems are loaded as Technical Systems into the SLD with their products and software components, which are contents of Content Repository of the SLD. If, for example, I have to develop a scenario in XI to integrate my SAP ERP system with a legacy system, if I create a new Software Component version to create the XI design objects I need for the SAP ERP side, should I create and assign a new Product version with this SWCV to my SAP ERP Technical System, or I could use it without doing that, and make the connection with the system directly in the Integration Directory?

If anyone has information or tutorials about best practices for creating Products and Software Components depending on the scenario to develop in XI, that would be a lot of help for me.

Thanks in advance

Sebastian Pereira.

    hi sebastian,

    SLD is the central information provider in a system landscape. SLD contains two types of information:

    1.Component Information

    2.Landscape Description

    At design time of the integration objects, the component information is extracted from the SLD to define integration scenarios.

    SLD Objects used in <b>

    I. Integration Repository

    I.1. Products

    I.2. Software component Versions

    II. Integration Directory

    II.1. Bussiness System

    II.2. Technical System

    </b>

    refer: System Landscape Directory in SAP XI

    Hi Sebastian,

    As far as I know, you need not assign the new SWC to ERP Tech SYs on SLD. But it would be better to do that, so that you would know what all the tech sys are being used by each of the Product and SWC you create in SLD.

    Make sure that for every third party systems you do maintain this data in SLD.

    Sebastian,

    -->if I create a new Software Component version to create the XI design objects I need for the SAP ERP side, should I create and assign a new Product version with this SWCV to my SAP ERP Technical System, or I could use it without doing that, and make the connection with the system directly in the Integration Directory?

    Yep you can ...Software component takes part only in design time...at configuration time You need to import the Business system in Integration Directory..

    Configuration time activity:

    1. Create Technical and Business systems in SLD( Business system should be associated with this Technical system only)

    2. Now import Business System from tool menu item of ID

    3. Right lick and Create a scenario in ID

    5. Under this scenario you can see the configuration objects you need to configure an create..these objects

    PS : Don't forget to activate the objects in ID

    Let me know if you want further clarification of thoughts..

    Regards,
