    Hi,

    When ever we are dealing with proxies we dont use any adapter to talk with IS.

    Proxies will directly talk with IS .

    While Proxies are receiver end we use XI adapter , this for internal communication only.to talk with Integration Engine with IS , we use it.

    In Case of Sender means proxies will directly talk with IS . then no need of Adapter here.

    If you observe means in case of any receiver means we have to use the receiver adapter ( like IDOC, HTTP )

    Please Follow this BLOG to understand the flow, why we are using XI Adapter.

    Hi,

    We use an XI adapter at the receiver in order to communicate to the SAP system when server proxies are implemented.XI adapter directly sends the XML data coming from pipeline to the target application system without doing any conversions.The details of the target system to which it has to be sent is given in the XI configuration.

    Thanks and Regards,

    In case of receiver proxy (server proxy), XI is sending the data to other integration engine. XI communicates with this Integration engine using XI adapter. Now to identify that integration engine Path, the channel and the receiver agreement is required.

    At sender side, external integration engine sends the data to XI integration engine. As XI understands the Path and Format directly, so it does not require the adapter configuration at the sender side.

    Hi ,

    Adapters functionality is to handle the data transformations( to convert data from Source format to Target format). It also holds the login credentials of Target system.

    When u come to "XIAdapter" (used in proxy communication), it does not do any data transformations ( XML format is retained). It has only the login credentials of external system. Thats why we use XI adapter to know about the Target System.

    As there are no Data transformations we term it as "adapterless" communication.

    Rewarding Points would be appreciable if found it useful. 😊
