How to determine which adapter to be used in a scenario

Hi All,

I am new to XI and have some very basic knowledge about it.

I wish to know if I need to send data from a legacy(system A) to SAp (system B) how do I know what adapter to use. Should I use file, idoc ,JMS etc adapter.

Is there a specific guide which I can use to know which adapter should be used in which conditions.

Appreciate if you could guide me to some relavent weblog/steps.

Thanks

Shirin

    From you legacy system to XI:

    There are possibility to use File Adapter, or JMS adapter etc..

    From XI to SAP system, There are possibilities to use

    IDOC, RFC and ABAP Proxy

    You need to have discussion with consultant who are work in other systems, to see transport protocol their system support.

    Only after that, we can suggest further solutions for you.

    Regards.

    Hi,

    Welcome to SAP XI / PI World

    >I wish to know if I need to send data from a legacy(system A) to SAp (system B) how do I know what adapter to use. Should I use file, idoc ,JMS etc adapter.

    Choosing the Adapter depends upon the Sceneio, That is in what Format the Sender is going to send the message. In you case..if the Sender sends the message in the mode of File go ahead for File adapter,If it is Queue go for JMS Adapter..
