    My two cents about the method to reach multiple backends.

    It is better to have CRM as the ONLY backend system maintained for E-Commerce application. Any calls to "another" system (such as the ERP / R/3 systems) is best done with CRM as a pass-through. That is have the eCommerce make the call to CRM to a "dummy" RFC and pass-through the call the R/3. CRM and R/3 are already integrated and doesn't require you to maintain the credentials. No reinventing of the wheels to secure the password or no need to keep the R/3 password in a property file etc. Maintaining the password in property files doesn't fly-off well with any implementations, large or small. That is one more headache to maintain.

    This is how SAP does. For example, the ATP call, or other configuration checks are all done THROUGH the CRM only. So, why should we invent a new method?

    If some one talks about performance degradation theory, don't listen to them. With all the connection buffering and other optimizations alrady in place, that is a no issue.

    This discussion applies also to the "other" thread that is referred to in this thread.
