    Hi,

    Application Link Enabling:Means of creating and operating distributed applications.

    The purpose of Application Line Enabling is to guarantee a distributed, but integrated, R/3 installation. This involves business-controlled message exchange using consistent data across loosely linked SAP applications. Applications are integrated using synchronous and asynchronous communication and not using a central database.

    Application Link Enabling comprises the following three layers:

    Application services , Distribution services , Communication services.

    Intermediate document (IDoc) container for exchanging data between R/3, R/2 and non-SAP systems. ALE uses IDocs to exchange data between logical systems. Non-SAP systems can use IDocs as the standard interfacefor data transfer.

    IDocs are created when message types and (object) methods are distributed. The message type is the format in which the data for a specific business process is transferred.

    Electronic Data Interchange.

    Electronic exchange of structured data, such as business documents, between domestic and international business partners that use different hardware, software and communication services. For this purpose, the data involved is formatted according to predefined standards.

    In addition to this, the SAP ALE technology is available for data exchange within a company.

    Prase
