Interface objects

We are doing a scenario of sending Sales order idocs to Soap messages using XI. Do I still have to do the business scenario settings or can I go with the interface objects and the mapping objects??

Also there is a little confusion whie setting the interface objects. Do I need to create one for the Idoc(from R/3) and one for the SOAP Message and what would be the directions (outbound/inbound) for each interface..

    Hi,

    I assume that the IDOC is imported from an R/3 system therefore you don't have to do any interface objects only the mapping objects. You need an interface object for the SOAP call and as SOAP is an sync. call it always will have to message mappings, e.g. the inbound and outbound. The problem is that the return message needs to be mapped via a ccBPM to an inbound interfaces as the IDOC is async. That that you need another interface object.

    In general a business scenario is not needed in the repository part but in the configuration part.

    I used BAPI to SOAP which is much nicer as both are sync. calls and you can avoid the ccBPM.

    I hope this helps.

    Hi,

    Thanks for a very informative reply..I am awarding you points..I still have some questions...I have set up a message interface in interface objects for the Idoc coming in from r/3 to XI..I bet this will be a inbound as its coming into XI ...RIGHT???...

    By your reply when I map this Idoc to a SOAP , I need to set up another message interface for this SOAP in repository and it would be synchronous and outbound ..RIGHT??...

    Am I correct with my idea to use a HTTPS adapter for the SOAP...So inthis case an incoming message (response) is needed...How do I map it and to which I need to map it? You mentioned the BAPI method ....Does it bypass the HTTP ADAPTER step..I am not sure how it needs to be done..Any help would be appreciated...
