Polling with RFC Sender Adapter



i am facing a general problem with the rfc sender adapter.

I have to design a scenario where periodically pi has to call a rfc fuba/bapi in R3 and insert the response into a database or create a file.

I looked for some possibilities to impelement this scenario and desided to use ABAP Proxies to transfer the data from R3 to pi.

The problem is that the wish of the department for R3 is not to plan a job to send the files. They want that pi itself call periodically the fuba in R3. I found out that the rfc sender adapter is not able to poll like jdbc oder file adapter.

I thought i could write a litte abap program in pi to be planned in a job or to create a dummy file and poll with the file adapter. But i mean that these solutions are not good. They feel like workarounds and not like a real good solution.

Beside this there is also the problem that we could use the inubit integration system. inubit is able to poll periodically the rfc adapter and is it hard to argument against this.

Are there any good solutions known for the problem?

Does anyone know what the official SAP meaning is for a process like the described above?

many thanks
