PI 7.1 advantages related to ESOA ?

Hi Guys,

I am working as SAP XI/PI developer and i have read some blogs about the new feauters of PI 7.1 but i could not understand how we can use it in ESOA development.

The other thing is what are composite applications and what are the skills required to work with composite apps. we have a project coming up in composite apps and i want to know what are the skills required to work in composite applications.

any guidance or suggestions would be great

Thanks,

Srini

    Hi Srinivas,

    With PI 7.1 , IR is getting replaced by ESR. ESR would be used to define/design new Enterprise Services and then you can generate proxies to implement those services in either ABAp or JAVA.

    Composite applications are cross system applications. Skill required are mainly JAVA ,CAF and CE 7.1

    Hope this helps,

    regards,

    HI Srini,

    PI can be used for 2 purposes.

    1) System / Application Integration

    Conventional PI scenarios like IDoc - file.. file to http....etc.

    ( 2) Applications Routing.

    Ex A webservice exposed from an R/3 system to create a sales order can be

    routed via PI.

    These services can be used to create Composite Applications.

    In short services for Comp App can be routed through PI.

    Interfaces in PI7.1 are referred as Enterprise Services.

    And hence the webservice at the backened when routed through PI becomes an Enterprise Service.

    PI Adds a layer of abstraction.
