Details need for integration with Tracking Portal

Hi Experts,

I have an scenario where ECC would send a request which would contain a "Shipment Container Number" to the application "http://www.track-trace.com/".

The response would be details of the container, its status and vice versa.This application is out of clients landscape, obviously.

I hope the scenario will fit into ABAP Proxy <-> SAP-PI  <-> SOAP.

My concern is.->

a.What details and input I can communicate with the team handling this application so that they can understand the requirement.

Guide me with all the points which i require from them like WSDL file of the interface, WSDL URL, any agreement with them etc.

Regards

Rebecca

    Hi Michal,

    I had raised the following question to the Non-SAP application team.

      

    1.If your application is hosted on WebService.

    Answer* NO

    2.Whether your response details would have any  structured format. 

    Answer* No

    3.Whether the format is in WSDL.

    Answer : NO*

    4.Whether your application support the multiple tracking in single search.

    Answer* NO

    5.I think the second service (track-tracePro) you provide may help us.

    The web site provides 1 services where you can store your shipment details in their server and track one by one by displaying the result in HTML page.

    Once you click 1 tracking id , it will show the below HTML page and vice versa.

    Now what inputs can I fetch more by all these updates.

    1.Is it possible to integrate with the data displayed from the HTML page?

    2.Suggest how to proceed further?

    Regards

    Hi Rebecca,

    >>>>a.What details and input I can communicate with the team handling this application so that they can understand the requirement.

    a) if you'd need to use SOAP then you need:

    - WSDL (which should contain WS URL)

    b) you also need to make sure if your PI can be connected to the internet directly as in most cases this is never allowed (only via j2se adapter or decentralized adapter engine)

    c) on this web site I have not see any interfaces maybe you need to use any of their applications:

    http://www.track-trace.com/services

    to be able to get connected with them ? anyway you'd need to call them first to investigate

    Regards,

    Michal Krawczyk

    Hi Excperts,

    I contacted with the support team with the following querries that SAP would send a request with a container number and in return their response would be the details of the container details.

    ECC <----> WebSite

    The response from the support team "Track Trace" website, this was the reply.

    ===============================================================

    if I understand you correctly you are looking for a response back in some form of structured format. Unfortunately this is not something we have access to, we just get and display the HTML results from the different shipping companies.

    The option we can offer for integrating into external systems is our track-traceConnect service that lets you generate URLs that open our tracking results pages directly:

    https://connect.track-trace.com/

    ===============================================================

    Does this fit the scenario ECC Proxy <---- SAP PI --> HTTP Scenario?

    Please share the suggestion to proceed?

    Regards

    Rebecca
