Hi friends,

Kindly let me know whate is web services, how to start work on that.

My client requirement for couple of objects is:

1. Create a web service which can perform the following actions:

a. Read the XML input file.

b. Perform the action defined in the XML file and create/update/query the business objects in SAP. The service should be scalable for change in data model, if the xml file contains different attributes, it should interpret and perform the appropriate actions

c. Output the required data as xml file based on the definition, which is defined in XML file or template

HOW we can resolve this issue. Kindly suggest me .

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Sreenivas

Hi Sreenu,

I dont think wihtout any middleware we can connect XML with SAP. Business connector is one of the tool.

Just check this post of SDN. This might serve you purpose.

You can do that of course with XI or BC, but:

There is an interesting option which requires no middleware in between at all. You can send your data via http to the ICF (Internet communcation framework) which is embedded in the SAP system.

ICF provides standard HTTP request handlers for sending and receiving idoc-xml, for example.

If you send other format, you can write a request handler in ABAP to map your things.

A customer from me had the same requirement (direct XML transfer to SAP), works fine with ICF.

hi,

For using XML you have to SOAP server and other facilities like WSDL which is configured mostly on BW. So we have to look to the BW however we are using ABAP.
