which adapter to choose - PI replacing Business connector

Hi Gurus,

I have to work on the following scenario :

User will input a value in the front end web page, that will generate a plain XML file and send it (as HTTP post) to SAP Business Connector which will communicate with SAP ECC via a RFC function module and post the response to .Net server as plain XML file which in turn will be displayed on the front end. All these communication has to happen in real time (NO FTP, NO SOAP, only plain XML).

Now our client is replacing the business connector with PI system.

How to handle this situation (get the request from .NET and post the response) in PI and which adapter should be used?

I am comfortable in doing the communication between PI and ECC system, the problem is on the other side.

Thanks,

Prabu

    Hi Prabhu,

    I would suggest to generate a webservie from PI synch interface and call this service from the .net application.

    You should mention, which protocol is used between .NET and Business connector.

    When HTTP is used, yu can work with TCP-IP adapter.

    When another protocol is used like DCOM, then you have to change that protocol in .NET

    As .NET is also a development environment, it should be possible to create a web service in .NET, as Sekher proposed it.
