Thoughts on following scenario

Hey All,

I have a scenario and just wanted to get some feedback on the integration directory part before I try and re-invent the wheel. I do not have any experience with B2B communcations so any thoughts would be great. Basically, we will be sending out PO's to many vendors via XI, converting the data to xCBL3.0 format. So basically it is



1) the sender service is my R/3 business system.

2) the receivers will be business services for each vendor


3) Since they are business partners, do I have to use 'with party', or can I just do 'services without party'.

4) the conditions on the receiver determination will determine who gets each message and what mapping are called

5) A couple of vendors want to give me a syncronous response, while other will not. How best to handle this?

thanks in advance for the ideas,

    1) The R/3 system could be a Service without party/Business System

    2) You could have one business service which is assigned to many receivers, via Receiver Determination and Interface Determination. Or you could create business services for each party. I'd recommend the first approach. We do this in RosettaNet Scenarios where many VENDORS can receive the PO via the same service ( ie PIP3A4_V0202 )

    3) I think and recommend you use "with party". In RosettaNet scenarios, we create multiple parties VENDOR1 & VENDOR2 using the same business service PIP3A4_V0202.

    4) Yes, in addition to your Interface Determination, and Receiver Agreement.

    5) no recommendations. In rosettaNet, everything is asynchronous.

    good luck! james
