Hi srini,

<b>What is WebService</b>

in simple word webservice is a application which is available in the web..it is a remote client which can be deployed in XI .Whenever XI is communicating with a Webservice it communicates using SOAP adapter..since some remote clients or Web services providers are only able to communicate by means of SOAP messages

->SOAP adapter enables you to exchange SOAP message between remote clients and Web Service Servers and the Integration Server.

-> The SOAP Adapter provides a runtime environment that includes various SOAP components for the processing of SOAP message.

-> You use the SOAP adapter to connect such systems to the Integration Server directly

-> The SOAP adapter uses a helper class to instantiate and control these SOAP components

->The SOAP adapter receives a msg from the remote client or Web service provider, converts the SOAP protocol into XI msg protocol and then sends the msg to the Integration Server to be processed further.

see what is webservice

Hi,

>> How do we monitor synchronus messages in RunTime Workbench?

To monitor synchronus messages in SXMB_MONI:

Goto Integration Engine Administration using TCode SXMB_ADM.

Select Integration Engine Configuration and then Specific Configuration.

In Current Configuration add a Category RUNTIME , Parameter LOGGING_SYNC and Current Value 1.

To monitor synchronus messages in RunTime Workbench:

U need to go to Visual Administrator:

Services | SAP XI AF Messaging:

KEY: messaging.syncMessageRemover.removeBody

VALUE: false

This way your sync messages will be viewable in AF.

FTP is File Transfer Protocol. It is used to move files from one place to another via internet either with unsecured or secured connections.

Web Services are services available over internet. In other words, Web Services are functions available over internet which anyone can use, if they know their signature (WSDL).

Synchronous messages do not get persisted by default in IE. You have to configure parameter in SXMB_ADM to persist these. If a sychronous message is success it will not get persisted. But in case of failure, it does get persited but restart is not possible.. since this is synchronous.
