    hi keerthi,

    <u>Business Connector.</u>

    This is XML Based communication over the internet is achieved through SAP's Business Connector. This is based one only XML/HTML internet based standards. But XI is more than a business connector, XI has capabilities to integrate not only business system but legacy also.

    For more on BC : http://www.erpgenie.com/mysap/bus_connector.htm

    <u>BAPI </u>

    BAPI is just an interface not a middleware..
