    Often we need to transfer heavy files between Web Applications in Java and SAP in ABAP. Information passed as XML will Increase the performance of your Java-ABAP applications interfaces. So the data that needs to be passed from ABAP needs to be XML Compatible and so we are using the XSTRING.

    XSTRING is one of the predefined Data types in ABAP with variable length.

    It is a Data type for variable-length byte sequence used in XML outputs

    XSTRING Data types are used in Transformation of an XML Doument.

    • This will also help.

      The predefined data types string and xstring describe data objects of variable length (dynamic data objects). While the length of data objects in all other elementary data types is determined for its whole lifetime, the length of text and byte strings varies according to their content (the maximum size of a string is determined by profile parameter ztta/max_memreq_MB)
