    For upgrade, have a look here

    Yes, Kerberos Security tokens would be supported

    Hi,

    SAP and HP tested these features on larger scaled hardware and got very positive results. The more detailed marketing white paper is now published. In this blog, I provide in short some numbers that were already presented during TechEd 2007 at Las Vegas and Munich in EPI 208. In a scenario IDOC to Flatfile, the throughput increased for a message of 11 KB size by the factor 2.6 with the use of packaging compared to a scenario without packaging. The benefits for a ccBPM collect scenario with packaging and the ohther ccBPM improvements before where even higher.

    On the same hardware although a synchronous SOA scenario was tested. In this scenario, a SOAP service called a proxy implemented in an ECC 6.0 backend system (by using an SAP NetWeaver PI 7.0 Integration Server). The 16 dual cores of the hardware were able to process 366 available to promise checks per second.

    With using the Advanced Adapter Engine (AAE) in SAP NetWeaver PI 7.1, much higher numbers can be reached. For scenarios executed in the AAE, the single runtime of a message reduces by factors. Even better results can be reached for asynchronous scenarios in regards to throughput. There we see for SAP internal testscenarios the factor 10 more throughput on same hardware. The main reason for that is, that AAE can now do routing and mapping together and asynchronous messages are only persisted to the database one time. For more details on AAE and supported scenarios please see TechEd sessions EPI 208 and EPI 214.

    Another important feature in SAP NetWeaver PI 7.10 are the services based on service interfaces. These services can be configured with the help of the SOA Manager. However, SAP NetWeaver PI PI 7.1 offers a configuration possibility, too. You may know the Integration Directory. In the Integration Directory you now can configure point to point services centrally and keep the overview. For services configured there the Runtime Workbench can be used for monitoring, too. That means you have the benefits of central configuration and monitoring but the execution is done point to point. If services need routing or mapping the PI middleware can be used for these mediated scenarios.

    To prevent that messages from your external partners (in B2B scenarios) which do not contain the necessary information enter your middleware and create errors you can make use of XML validation in SAP NetWeaver PI 7.1. That means that if you switch on XML validation for a specific interface, the message is returned to the sender with an error if non optional data is missing. That reduces your efforts on error processing inside your company in terms of system usage and manual error handling.

    You see, there are a bunch of new possibilities. Have a look on them and exploit the benefits where it fits best to your scenarios! Please do not forget that properly designed scenarios are always the basis for succes.
