    Hello Mladen,

    of course it's possible. The HTTP-Adapter would accept the incoming XML, the IDOC-Adapter refers the message to a SAP system. Both adapter are easy to handle and high-performance.

    Hi all,

    my legacy app is only producing SAP-XML IDOC file and put this file to a file folder.

    SAP Business Connector (my development) is responsible for picking this file, convert SAP-XML IDOC to IDOC and sent it to SAP.

    I don't know XI well and don't use it, but this scenario is important to know if it is possible and how.

    As I understand I could use file adapter or SAP BC adapter in XI?

    Yes, you can use XI to send the data to SAP. You would use the J2SE file adapter to send the XML to XI and from XI to SAP. I would not recommend LEGACY-BC-XI-SAP 'cause there is too many steps where something can go wrong. XI was developed to replace BC and not to work along with BC.
