    I am not able to get your exact requirment, but what I got I will provide you detail info about using files with BPM with Async/Sync bridge or vice versa and transformation step.

    please refer below links

    Integration Processes (ccBPM) (SAP Library - SAP Exchange Infrastructure)

    Transformation Step

    You use a transformation step ( ) to do the following:

    ● n:1 Transformation

    Bundles multiple messages into one message, for example, individual purchase order items into one purchase order.

    ● 1:n Transformation

    Splits a message into multiple messages, for example, a purchase order into the individual purchase order items.

    ● 1:1 Transformation

    Converts a message into another message, for example, a message that is defined by interface A is converted to message that is defined by interface B.

    Bridge (Sync/Async OR Async/Sync)

    There are few adapters in XI which are working asynchornously such as file,Sender JDBC etc and synchronously (SOAP,RFC etc)

    While integrating, the Adapters working Asynchornously have to talk with Sync. adapters or vice-versa, then there is need to bridge dummy response for Async adapters to complete the interface.

    This can be possible with the usage of BPM

    For e.g. RFC to XI to File, it needs to built Sync/Async bridge with BPM as RFC works synchronously and file asynchronously. This gap of requets and response will be fill up by bridge between RFC to File via XI.

    Please find here with you step by step scenario to use this kind of bridge,

    Sync/Async scenarios without BPM


    Normally File adapter needs this kind of bridge to create dummy response.
