XI Requirements

Another stupid question, do you need to have r/3 enterprise (4.7) in order to use XI ?

Is it possible to run it on the mini-WAS ? Does it cost anything to purchase separately ?

Cheers

    Hi Alec,

    XI-2.0 is an Integration Server based on SAPWAS620 which has both the ABAP stack and the JAVA Stack to run both the the applictaions. XI can communicate with any SAP(3.x and above) or non SAP System.

    It all depends on how many messages u wnt to send thorugh XI and how ur business landscape is designed to handle those messages.

    Hello Alec,

    No, SAP XI does not need R/3 Enterprise 4.7 to operate. (Look at Note below)  SAP XI is a standalone technology stack of SAP NetWeaver and has its own licensing cost. Yes, it can be purchased separately. However, SAP XI "is used" by other SAP applications (e.g. SAP SRM, SAP MDM, etc.) for message processing and is therefore bundled up in their product suites. The future vision of SAP is to have all the other SAP applications (including R/3 Enterprise) to use SAP XI as its integration platform.

    SAP XI 2.0 sits on top of and requires the foundation of the SAP Web AS 6.20 (i.e. the basis kernel).  The mini-Web AS Java Developer Edition CD was offered to customers to demo its capabilities, look and feel, Web Dynpro, etc. It was not for the purpose of testing SAP XI.

    Note:

    R/3 Enterprise 4.7 consists of three areas with distinct release numbers and cycles:

    1) SAP Web Application Server 6.20 (for SAP R/3 Enterprise)

    2) SAP R/3 Enterprise Core 4.70

    3) SAP R/3 Enterprise Extension Set 1.10

    Does that help clarify stuff?

    Enjoy!
