Which scenario shd we use web service & idoc.

How is idoc triggerred.?

Is it only through user exit?

Kindly suggest any other ways for interacting with a 3rd party system which does not use a file.

    Dear Libin,

    IF you are using sap sytem as a sender then its better to use idoc's. Actually both systems (idoc and webservice) have there own advantages and disadvantages. Look up sdn for more info.

    My personal choice would be idoc since with webservices you would need special tools like xml spy or altova and the skill to analyze and run those tools.,, its a little tedious..
