    You can import externally-defined integration processes as BPEL documents (Business Process Execution Language).

    hi,

    XPath is a language for navigating in XML documents.XPath is used to navigate through elements and attributes in XML documents.

    http://www.w3schools.com/xpath/default.asp

    In XI, Context objects mask access to elements or attributes in the payload. For example, you can specify elements in a deeply nested message structure in conditions by using the short name of a context object, thus sparing you the long hierarchy path.

    BPEL stands for Business Process Execution Language.You can import externally-defined integration processes as BPEL documents (Business Process Execution Language).

    hi,

    BPEL:Business Process Execution Language

    You can use BPEL4WS as the exchange format for exporting an integration process to a non-SAP

    system.

    Xpath:XML Path Language

    most commanly xpath is used to give a condition.

    Regards,

    HI

    XPATH: Itu2019s a specification of XML family, using this we can address any node in XML document. We can define mappings using XSLT together with XPATH. XSLT implements XPATH expressions to select substructures of a XML documents. We can use XSLT tags <XSL:import> <XSL:include>to include predefined templates for substructures.

    BPEL: Business Process Execution Language

    u2022Design time activities, executed in the Integration Builder (Repository), allow us to use visual editors to create the objects and structures (and, as far as possible, import or generate those structures and objects), that are used in an Integration Scenario.

    u2022These objects are created using web standard languages and protocols, such as Business Process Execution Language (BPEL), Web Services Description Language (WSDL), and XML Schema Definition Language (XSD).

    cheers

    Hi !

    WSDL, XSD, Xpath and BPEL are all open standard.

    ABAP for instance, is not an open standard.

    look at the below URL's for more details

    Hi bharath,

    Context Objects are nothing but X-Path Expression in XI. X-Path(XML Path) Expression are like

    <Header>

    <Purchase Order>

    <Name>Srinvas</Name>

    </Purchase Order>

    </Header>

    Here we defined X-Path Expression like: /Header/Purchase Order/Name/.

    xpath
