XML to IDOC interface - XML creates multiple IDOCs depending on record type


Dear all,

We are about to embark to a PI implementation.

It will be a file to idoc interface. An encrypted xml file will be collected via HTTPS from a remote third party server.

The file will be first decrypted in PI. Then, the xml file, which will contain many different records, say 20 records on average, will be read and 20 idocs of type FIDCCP02 will be posted to our ERP 2004 system.

One of the challenges of this implementation is the creation of the multiple idocs from the single xml file.

Could you suggest what would be the best/simplest way to have this implemented? The xml contains various records

of record types 1 to 9. For example, every record type from 1 to 9 creates a different accounting document in Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable or General Ledger in ERP 2004.

It would have been much easier for us to collect numerous files in the third party server each converting to one idoc

but this is not an option, unfortunately.

We are using PI 7.0 and ERP2004, both with the latest support packs.

Many thanks
