BEST PRACTICE QUESTION: XI or direct R/3 RFC?

We are creating an interface from R/3 to an externally facing (internally built) website.

Question: What is the best practice defining whether or not we should pivot thru XI? This is a single interface that will not be reused; there would be no mapping within XI; and the call must be real-time and syncronous.

Thanks much for your knowledge/assistance.

    Hi,

    the best practice is :

    don't use XI for sync interfaces

    but if the flow from RFC to this website will be very ocasional

    and you don't want to play with receving RFC data on the website

    then you can use it just to help yourself with an adapter

    If PI is used as the only strategic middleware across your entire landscape and you want to continue align the entire landscape in the same manner, then you can use PI for the communication. When it comes to central monitoring, PI tools would be handy. Performance wise it would be always better to have a direct connection.
