Async to Sync Scenario

Hi Experts,

I am doing async JDBC to sync webservice scenario.

I did create async interface for JDBC and sync interface for webservice.

my scenario is i just want to see the response from webservice in XI for trouble shoot, i dont need to send the response message to database.

can anyone tell me how can we do it without using BPM (async to sync bridge).

Kind Regards,

    Hi Kiran,

    You don't need BPM for implementing your scenario. It can be implemented with BPM.

    Flow of Data will .

    1. Create JDBC Adapter for source system.

    2. JDBC Adapter will poll table in the database. Whenever data is updated or inserted, Data will be picked up.

    3. Data goes into XI system.

    4. Mapping is done between JDBC data and Request data of Webservice. as well as between Webservice response and JDBC target data type.

    5. Webservice will be invoked using SOAP Receiver Adapter.

    6. Webservice will send response and this will be captured by receiver adapter.

    7. Imp. Webservice data should be declared as inbound synchronous.

    Hi kiran,

    you will find a sample for the BRIDGe delivered by SAP in your interface repository.

      Please go through below steps now

      I have added the comments with same in bold font

      Data Types: JDBC_DT,File_DT

      Message Types: JDBC_MT,File_MT

      Message Interfaces:

      JDBC_OUT_MI(outbound,async),This should be Sync given MT_File as respo

      File_MI(inbound,async), Dont use this


      WS_resp_MI(outbound,async,WS_resp), -----No need of this

      Message Mappings:


      (JDBC_OUT(JDBC_MT)------->WS_IN_MI(WS_req) ).

      *Here WS_IN_MM msg. mapping should be used insted of*

      *WS_IN_MI i.e message interface*


      (WS_Res(Source -- Ws_res) ---> File_MT)

      Interface Mapping: JDBC_WS_req_IM(source=JDBC_OUT_MI,target=WS_IN_MI)

      In IM you need to use the above one only

      Here you have two tabs as Request & Response, Request will be normal as

      it is JDBC_MT to WS_Req with proper mapping

      *In Response use File_MT <--- Ws_RES with appropriate mapping *

      For ID configuration refer below sample scenario,

      It is File1 to RFC to File2 - Just in your scenario it is JDBC >WS--->File2

      So refer and do necessary changes

      From SP 19 on XI 3.0 and SP 10 on PI 7.0, a File - RFC - File ( Asynch - Synch ) scenario can be done without a BPM.


      Integration Repository

      The Integration Repository will be similar to any Synchronous Scenario ( say HTTP - RFC ) . 1 Outbound Synch message Interface and 1 Inbound Synch Message Interface.

      Integration Directory

      This is where a few differences lie, so let me take some time.

      1. The Receiver Determination , Interface Determination will be the same as in HTTP - RFC synch scenario. Create the Sender File Adapter, Receiver RFC Adapter and Receiver File Adapter.

      2. Sender Agreement will be for the Sender File Adapter. Sender Agreement uses the Synch Outbound Message Interface.

      3. Receiver Agreement will be for the Receiver RFC adapter. Receievr Agreement will use the RFC as thge Inbound Message Interface.

      4. We need to add a few modules in the Sender File Adapter.

      Go to the Modules Tab of the Sender File Adater, and add the following modules in the same sequence,

      Number - ModuleName - Type - ModuleKey

      code1- AF_Modules/RequestResponseBean - Local Enterprise Bean - 1

      2- CallSapAdapter-Local Enterprise Bean - 2



      ModuleKey - ParameterName - ParameterValue

      code1 - passThrough - true

      3-receiverChannel - Receiver File Adapter Name

      3-receiverService - Receiver Business Service/ System[/code]

      With this configuration, you can now handle the requirement without a BPM 😊

      This feature been already blogged for JMS Adapters in these blogs ,

      Sync/Async communication in JMS adapter without BPM (SP19)


      Async/Sync Communication using JMS adapter without BPM (SP 19)


      Dynamic Configuration is also possible,and this as well as many other options are discussed in the How To guide - "How To Realize a sync-async and async-sync

      bridge within the Adapter Framework" available on the Service Market Place.

      For info on the Modules used here, look into these links,

      Request Response Bean

      Response Oneway Bean

      Hope this info helps,

    Hi kiran,

    May be u can do one thing.

    create jdbc<->XI<->Webservice synchronous scenario....

    Sender JDBC can't be synchronous in reality...still u can try it since u r just doing it for testing purpose....

    u will get an moni... but... u can see the response from webservice in moni....

    Create a dummy receiver, e.g. a file receiver. After receiving the data from jdbc sender, make a soap lookup. The response of SOAP lookup is enough for ur scenario.

    For SOAP lookup
