XI Adapter mainstream maintenance

Hi All,

We are on PO-7.5 dual stack, XI adapter using for webMethods queue connection for In/Out bounds interfaces. As per my previous conversation with SAP support team,they informed me that as XI adapter going forward will be decommissioned / stopping mainstream maintenance and suggested me to change all scenarios to SOAP adapter when we was doing the upgrade project from PI/PO- 7.0 to 7.3 version.

The question is one of client using the XI adapter in 7.5 dual stack, now we are refining the architecture, so are there any disadvantages in architecture point of view, if still continue/keep XI adapter scenarios.

Yours expertise much appreciated ...!

    XI adapter means involvement of ABAP Stack. You are relying on Classical Configuration. So, message processing will be via numerous pipelines.

    If you replace XI adapter with SOAP Adapter- TP-HTTP,MP-XI 3.0, you can go via ICO means drastical drop in pipelines when you are processing the message.

    Dear Pochammal,

    If XI adapter is used, the ABAP stack is involved in message processing. The house-keeping jobs (archiving and deletion jobs) for Integration Engine on ABAP stack will be needed as well. If you use SOAP adapter with XI 3.0 message protocol instead of XI adapter, all the message processing will be on Advanced Adapter Engine (AEX) and only the house-keeping jobs (archiving and deletion jobs) for Adapter Engine on Java stack is enough.

    You can use Migration Tool to realize scenario migration.
