Party and Service without party

Hi All,

I totally understand the definition of Party and services, but on an application point of view when do we actually go in for party and when do we go in for service w/o party??? I feel the diff. is minute but there should be an industry std. and I would like to follow it...

My scenario is Idoc communicating to HTTP using XI 3.0..

Thanks,

Teresa

    Hi Teresa,

    this is more or less a question of organizing your scenarios. Until now I could not experience any difference between "Party" and "Service w/o Party". We use "Service w/o Party" in all internal scenarios, meaning that no external partner is involved. If it comes to a scenario where we need to communicate with external partners then we place it under "Party". That's all about it. I also asked this question on the XI 3.0 education and the answer was the same....

    Hi Teresa,

    The use of party is mainly for B2B communication, such as Rosettanet. The definition of a party actually identifies the partner system using a global classification code such as DUNS or an ALE partner number.

    Other than this, you do not need to use any party. Service without party will do all.
