pros and cons of using PI as pass-through for EDI messages


Hi Experts,

We have a edi translator in place that can map sap idocs to x12 and vice-versa. We are also using PI as middleware for all our interfcaes. I want to understand the pros and cons of using PI as a pass-through layer between ECC and EDI translator. We have to make a decision whether to use PI in between and what benefits it brings as compared to by-passing PI altogether and have ECC and EDI translator communicate directly.
