Hi,

when we for EDI then only third party tool comes into picture..Mercator ,gentron are the thirdparty tools.

SAP(R/3) ->Middleware(mercator)->Legacy system.

when we send idoc from R/3 to middleware it will convert that to some xml file and send to legacy system.This is called outbound.

similarly from legacy system data comes as file to middleware which converts it to idoc file by the middleware and then that file can be uploaded to SAP R/3.This is called inbound..

But for ALE we generally don' use third party tools.

Reward points if u find useful.
