Timeout setting for BW - XI - XMII scenario

Hi,

I am currently working on a BW - XI - XMII scenario. It is a synchronous call. The BW is generating ABAP proxy on the outbound interface in XI. The request parameters passed by BW will be used by XI to extract data from xMII and the results are returned to BW. While performing testing BW will be running a background job with all the input test parameters and the maximum runtime is for example 6 hours. I wanted to know what will be the implications on XI and XMII (It is a synchronous SOAP scenario). Do I have to set the timeout setting in XI for the same if so how can it be done?

Thanks.

Kiran

    Kiran,

    So u mean if BW sends request it has to wait 6 hours to get back the response isn't it?

    • Kiran,

      Can u plz do me a favor, just set the question to un resolved and remove the points for me. Coz the above mentioned reply is my own thoughts, probably my fellow SDN'er can differ from my thoughts and they can even give best solution than me. So allow sometime for someone to reply back, then choose from the best.

      I hope u can understand!

      Actually I don't know what is ur current Timeout parameter, just try out scenario and check how many minutes u r anticipating to wait and u can see what to do.

      raj.

    You mean you want make the system to wait for 6 hours.. that is not advicable and it will give Time Out Error.. What is the Adapter you are using at receiver End.

    • Hi,

      >The time out parameter in our case is set to 3 minutes and hence the BW team would be setting their timings 30 to 45 mins more than the XI timeout setting

      The XI will wait for 3 minutes for response since that was the setting done in SAP XI .

    We are using the SOAP Adapter. It is the synchronous scenario.

    BW (ABAP Proxy) -> XI (soap adapter) --> XMII.

    The time out parameter in our case is set to 3 minutes and hence the BW team would be setting their timings 30 to 45 mins more than the XI timeout setting.

    Thanks,

    Kiran
