      Hi Mehta,

      like William Li statet before there is a consideration about the size of XSLT-Mapping. In order to be able to do mapping all structure of the xml has to be in memory as a DOM-Structure. You can guest that this will consume huge memory. Another aspect is the working behavior of the XSLT-Processor. It go all the node in the tree to query just one information on the node.

      With graphical Mapping especially with the node function you can do a lot and complex thing you can also do with XSLT. If there is no standard function available it is esay to write a smal java function an integrate it into the graphical mapping. The performance should be better if doing mapping with XSLT. If the performance is the only one reason than take graphical mapping befor XSLT. When standard and portability is important than XSLT will be the best but it will get lost in performance. I have not yet compare directly this two technic but principle XSLT is more slower because of huge memory used for both DOM structur (source and destination).

    • Hi All.

      The Mapping environment of XI ( being that XSLT, Graphial Mapping tool or Java ) is available from the Integration Builder Tool of XI.

      To launch the IB tool:

      1) Via SAPGUI run transaction sxmb_ifr

      2) Click the link to Integration Repository, this launches the integration builder design time tool.

      3) From within the tool you utilize the mapping facilities of XI.

      Regards

      José

    Hi,

    As i understand, we can enable point-to-point communication using XI Web services. But is the XI web service architecture itself tightly coupled with the WEB AS web service architecture?

    If that be the case, what would be the advantage of using XI rather than WEB AS directly for web services?

    Regards
